Discover LA’s Clean Beauty Destination: The OSEA Skincare Studio

Amidst the chic boutiques and trendy cafes of Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice lies a haven of holistic beauty and coastal sophistication – the OSEA Skincare Studio. Nestled along the sun-dappled streets of Venice and founded in 1996 by the visionary mother-daughter duo, Jenefer and Melissa Palmer, OSEA epitomizes the epitome of clean beauty, blending the restorative powers of the sea with a commitment to sustainability and luxury…and this eponymous brand was founded right here in LA. We got the chance to experience the gorgeous studio and indulge in its treatments for the day. We can’t wait to show you around so keep scrolling!

A Legacy of Sea-inspired Healing: The OSEA Story

OSEA’s founding story is nothing short of inspirational and the true definition of “girl boss’ moments. Jenefer’s grandmother Elsa, a trailblazer in her own right (and one of the first chiropractors in the US), discovered the transformative potential of seaweed and oceanic minerals through a guided intuitive message. Joined by her daughter, Melissa, Jenefer embarked on a journey to redefine skincare, harnessing the purity of the ocean to create a line of products that are as luxurious as they are effective. They have kept that same integrity and commitment to clean beauty and climate-friendly business practices while growing and launching award-winning products.  At OSEA, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword – it’s a way of life. Their Skincare Studio Recycling Program is a sustainable initiative where you bring back your empty products (6 to be exact) and for every 6 returned, receive a $40 treatment credit to be used once per treatment. We love that! Check out their new launches and journey on Instagram.

The OSEA Skincare Studio: A Sanctuary of Serenity

Once you step through the OSEA Skincare Studio doors in Venice, located at 1732 Abbot Kinney Blvd, you’re instantly enveloped in tranquility and refinement. The studio’s sleek, minimalist aesthetic is punctuated by subtle nods to its coastal heritage, with touches of natural wood and ocean-inspired decor. Sink into plush seating as you peruse the curated selection of OSEA’s coveted products, each one a testament to the brand’s commitment to clean beauty and uncompromising quality. As you explore the studio, you’ll notice the attention to detail in every corner – from the soothing ambiance created by soft lighting to the impeccable cleanliness that ensures a serene and hygienic environment for your skincare journey. Every element has been carefully curated to evoke a sense of calm and relaxation, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the OSEA experience.

Our Fave Treatment: The Deep Sea Age-Defying Facial

Prepare to be whisked away on a sensory journey like no other with the Deep Sea Age-Defying Facial ($200), the OSEA pièce de résistance in the realm of skin care rituals. We were set up with our skilled facialist, Samantha,  as she began by cocooning our skin in a series of OSEA luxurious serums and masks, each one infused with potent sea minerals and botanical extracts. From the delicate strokes of lymphatic drainage massage to the invigorating glow of LED light therapy, every step of the facial is designed to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin from the inside out. Samantha’s expert touch and intuitive understanding of skincare ensured that each treatment was tailored to address your unique concerns, and we left with a radiant glow and feeling ready to hit the town! They also have a  50 or 80-minute facial monthly membership where you can indulge in this transformative experience time and time again, saving $15 on each treatment and building better skin over time.  

Embrace Clean Beauty with OSEA’s Sea-inspired Skincare

No trip to the OSEA Skincare Studio would be complete without perusing their curated selection of sea-inspired skincare offerings. From the cult-favorite Undaria Algae Body Oil to the award-winning Vagus Nerve Bath Oil, each product is meticulously formulated to deliver unparalleled results while upholding the highest standards of purity and sustainability. If we could pick one product to bring a girl’s trip or friend’s sleepover moment, it would be the tingly Ocean Cleansing Mudd. And with Mother’s Day just around the corner, one of OSEA’s curated gift sets is a way to bring the spa home and pamper the mama in your life.  We are loving the Glow and & Go Facial Set, which includes 3 daily facial skincare essentials to cleanse, melt away tension with a gua sha tool, and will instantly boost your glow.
