Why Buy From Us

Oleo Bodycare is a range of award-winning, effective bodycare products.

They are handmade by Professional Aromatherapist, Olivia Chapman. A member of IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists), she qualified at the renowned Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine & Aromatherapy, and is passionate about her subject.

Olivia is also a fully qualified massage therapist and has a 1st class honours degree in Health Science. With this experience and knowledge contained in each Oleo product, you can rest assured that your body will be receiving the best possible care.

The entire Oleo Bodycare range is created, manufactured and packaged at our facility in Bridport, Dorset.

None of the ingredients that we use are tested on animals. All of our products are palm oil free and vegan.

We firmly believe that our formulations must benefit mind, body and wellbeing, using high quality essential oils, herbs, vegetable oils and extracts.

We are just as concerned as to what does not go into our products. As nature provides an abundance of safe, therapeutic ingredients, we see no reason to use anything synthetic or potentially harmful.



At Oleo Bodycare we are just as picky about what we put in our products as you are about what you use on your body.  There is no room for compromise when we select ingredients.  Only the highest quality pure essential oils and top grade botanicals find their way into our formulations.  We refuse to use damaging chemicals - SLS, parabens, mineral oils, artificial colours or fragrances.   As nature provides an abundance of safe, therapeutic ingredients, we see no reason to use anything synthetic or potentially harmful.  We have won several national awards for our products - recognition and confirmation of their excellence.



YOU are our business.  Without you we would not exist.  We want to treat you like we would wish to be treated, and that means fast, efficient response time to your orders, your questions and all your needs.  We live in a busy world where everyone expects instant results.  We are very proud of the service we provide, and will endeavour to despatch your goods on the same day that you place an order.  This means that you will usually receive your carefully packaged parcel the next day (weekends and bank holidays being an exception). 



Your feedback is extremely important to us.  We appreciate the time you spend to write reviews.  It is only by hearing what you think about our products and service that we can change what needs changing and maintain our high standards.  Both positive (and negative) reviews help our customers make informed choices when purchasing an Oleo product for the first time.  A positive review gives customers peace of mind and confirmation that they're making the right purchase decision. Incidentally, all of our reviewed products have received the highest score of 5-stars!!!!  Take a look for yourself.......



Oleo Bodycare was created in 2008 by professional aromatherapist, Olivia Chapman.  She is a member of IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists), a prestigious governing body.  Olivia qualified at the renowned Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine & Aromatherapy, and is passionate about her subject.  She also holds a first class honours degree in Health Science.  Olivia still insists on personally hand blending and overseeing every product we sell.  Many years of experience, a hunger for continued learning and knowledge of essential oils and skin care are contained in every Oleo product you buy.  



Oleo Bodycare was born in the beautiful county of Dorset.  This is where Olivia lives and where our production facility is located.  The stunning natural scenery has provided the inspiration behind many of our products.  Our first Oleo outlet was on a stall in the bustling market town of Bridport.  Eleven years later, Olivia still sells her wares at the market every Saturday to her loyal, ever-increasing following of local customers.  Many of these customers have been shopping and receiving advice at her stall since day one.  Visitors to the town return year after year to stock up on their beloved Oleo products. 

Vegan and Cruelty free


Here at Oleo, just as we want our products to be kind and gentle for you, we also want the same for all animals. Therefore, none of the ingredients that we use are tested on animals. We also feel that as we produce products for humans, it is only fitting that the final items are tested on them and NOT on animals. All Oleo products are now palm oil free and vegan. Until recently our Massage Balms, Happy Lips and Intensive Dry Skin Balm contained beeswax. However, in line with our animal-friendly ethos, we have now replaced all beeswax with rice bran wax. This is a skin conditioning agent and protective wax that adds body to balms, giving them good spreadability as well as a silky, non-sticky feel. It also has good antioxidant properties.



We are confident that everything we provide at Oleo is of the highest standard.  We continually scrutinise every aspect of the business to ensure that you are receiving the very best that we are able to deliver.   In the unlikely event of a complaint of any Oleo products or service, in the first instance contact us directly. We will do our best to resolve the problem quickly.  

Why Buy From Us? 

We know it’s difficult to buy something unknown and untried on the internet. It does require a leap of faith. So we have listed some reasons that we think might help you decide to have faith in Oleo.

  • The products really are amazing and they work. (Check the reviews from our satisfied customers).
  • The quality of these products at these prices will be very hard to beat.
  • Our service is as fast as we can make it. (If you order in the am, we will try to despatch in the pm).
  • All products have passed a safety assessment by an independent chemist. A legal requirement. (Keep this in mind when shopping in markets or on line for skin care)
  • Our products are all vegan friendly and cruelty free. 
  • Olivia is passionate about aromatherapy, so only 100% pure essential oils are used. (You will know this when you touch and smell Oleo products)
  • You have our promise that if you are not completely satisfied and delighted with any Oleo product a full refund will be given. (See terms & conditions)
  • Olivia is an expert in aromatherapy and with a wealth of knowledge in skin care, so if you have a question use the email address in ‘Contact Us’. (All in confidence)

We never use:-

Parabens (preservatives) – can cause allergic reactions and linked to oestrogen overproduction. Instead we use natural ingredients with preservative properties
Synthetic fragrances – often associated with allergic reactions. Instead we use 100% pure essential oils – for their wonderful aromas and therapeutic properties
Synthetic colours – often associated with allergic reactions. If we want additional colour, we use natural therapeutic oils such as avocado, carrot or calendula
Mineral oils – derived from petroleum, and can block the skin. Instead we use plant-based oils – rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids to help improve the skin’s condition
Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) – a synthetic detergent and possible skin irritant. Instead we use plant-based detergents that are effective and gentle on the skin

None of the Oleo products or their ingredients have been tested on animals

Oleo Bodycare is attractively packaged in recyclable glass to protect the vital properties of the ingredients and with clear, no-nonsense labelling.

Since the local launch in Spring 2009, the Oleo range has fast attracted an increasing number of local devotees. However, now everyone can benefit from these truly wonderful products as you’re just a few clicks away from Oleo Bodycare being delivered right to your door.
