Olofson Skincare makes premium skincare by hand in small batches on the Sussex coast, run by owner/founder Wendi Olofson.

My skincare range is made using carefully sourced, naturally derived and vegan friendly ingredients, because I believe that your skin deserves to be treated gently.

The products are packaged in glass containers and I use recycled packaging wherever possible. I don’t use Parabens, Sulphates, Synthetic Fragrances or Mineral Oils & obviously I’m Against Animal Testing!

I’ve spent many hours, years even, researching, sourcing and testing every single ingredient that I use because I needed to be confident that I was helping people to improve their skin.

There are so many products out there, why choose mine?

The proof of the pudding for me was when my team of willing testers started coming back and asking for more, saying they didn’t want to use anything else! That prompted me to stop faffing around, take it seriously, get my products tested and step out there into the world.

“My aim was to create a premium skincare range without all the fuss. Products that are luxurious but also do what they say on the tin.”

My background is in art and design, from jewellery, textiles, painting to interior design. However, I struggled for many years in trying to make a living from those skills. I somehow ended up in an office job for seven years, which satisfied my need for a regular income but something was always missing for me.

I yearned to do something more creative and had always wanted to have my own business, but how to make the change? The answer came a few years ago when I was made redundant from my job. Instead of feeling glum and fearful, I realised that this was my opportunity and I had to grab it with both horns!
