Activists for your skin

Actually, we are not cosmetics people. We are marine biologists, process engineers, researchers, northerners, water rats - and, yes, skin experts. Over 17 years ago, we discovered that we could do more with our work than "just" develop exceptionally effective active ingredients. With Oceanwell, we can multiply our commitment to the sea. Can open a way for you, the customer, to combine your health, beauty with responsibility. Your peach skin with marine protection. Consumption with sustainability. In this way, together we can achieve far more than any one of us could.

The mothers and fathers of Oceanwell: the team.

Theresa Talg

Product development

What are your tasks?
Product development, sustainable packaging (recyclability, LCA), changing research projects on the topics of active ingredients and sustainable packaging materials. 
Why are you at oceanBASIS?
During my studies in biotechnology and process engineering, I was constantly involved with active ingredients and formulation development, so my career aspirations were clear. For the compulsory internship and the bachelor's thesis, I looked for companies with whom I shared the same values in the implementation of cosmetics and that's when I came across Oceanwell. After that, things went very quickly and because everything is also very unique between people, I'm still happy that I was able to stay.
