Océopin: organic cosmetics based on maritime pine
Founded in 2012, the French brand Océopin makes 100% organic cosmetics in France, with a Cosmébio certification, based on maritime pine oil.
A French brand
The maritime pine oil is sustainably harvested along the Atlantic coast between Bordeaux and Cap-Ferret, in forests of the O.N.F. (National Forestry Office), which have been eco-certified thanks to a contract the brand initiated. From harvest to bottling, nothing is lost, everything is transformed. After the oil is extracted the pine nuts are recycled and used for making Océopin powder, a plant based exfoliant for the face and body. The pine cones are shipped all over Europe, to be used as Christmas decorations.
An exclusive range
Maritime pine oil is naturally light yellow, with a non-greasy feel, and a delicate vegetal and woody perfume. It took ten years of research to reveal all its benefits. Besides being rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, it also contains polyphenols, phytosterols and Delta 5 unsaturated fatty acids. These have a plumping and densifying effect which makes them very good anti-aging agents.
The products are available online at Océopin.com, but also in pharmacies, parapharmacies and organic shops.
Maritime pine nut powder: €18 for a 100 g bottle.
Dry oil body and hair care: €29 for a 100 ml bottle.
