What if your cosmetics are made from natural ingredients from France? In 2016, Marion Weber decided to create Oden, a brand of vegetable oils designed for all skin types. Its peculiarity? All the plants used are grown locally by passionate and recognizable French producers. Enough to ensure superior quality while reducing the environmental impact of transportation. Marion tells more about her brand that wants to take care of you and reconnect you with the power of the plants around you. Discovery!
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Marion Weber, I am 32 years old, I just became a mother and I am the founder of the brand ODEN. I founded this company to address the lack of transparency and traceability in the cosmetics industry.
Can you introduce us? ODEN †
In 2016 I realized that no cosmetic brand used local ingredients in their products. However, France is full of interesting plants for health and beauty. So I embarked on a farm tour of France to create a range of cosmetics using 100% local ingredients. ODEN is therefore a minimalist and local cosmetics brand. We source our ingredients directly from 30 French farmers.
We create French vegetable oils, suitable for all skin types. French hazelnut oil for oily skin, French plum oil for dry skin, French borage oil for mature skin. You will inevitably find a quality oil that suits you!
Why did you decide to embark on this adventure?
Today too many ingredients are imported from all over the world. You have no traceability on these ingredients: you don’t know where, when or how these plants were grown. Ultimately, your cream, which contains around twenty ingredients imported from all over the world, has a major impact on the environment. Local cosmetics are:
- Full ingredient traceability
- Fresh ingredients rich in active ingredients for your skin
- Diversification of French agriculture good for biodiversity
- Work for our passionate farmers
- A controlled environmental impact as no ingredients are imported!
What message do you want to convey via ODEN?
Switch to French vegetable oils for your skin!
- It’s better for your skin: vegetable oils contain vitamins that disappear during storage and transport.
- You manage your environmental impact: nothing is imported, everything is grown and processed in France.
- You will bring to life the local fabric and passionate French farmers.
