About Olive + M:

Ethics and sustainability meets ingenuity, boldness and grit: Olive + M embodies and celebrates those who represent the intersection of these values. Olive + M was born positive, transparent, ethically upright and bold. We do business according to our own deeply held beliefs and values. It’s our belief that making things ethically and sustainably results in better product — that doing good begets being better. At Olive + M, it is our ethics that make our high-performance products what they are. We exist to make products that connect people with the planet, and unite them with nature’s spiritual core.

While attending culinary school in 2002, Olive + M’s founder, Mariska Nicholson, started her own wellness journey through incorporating good-for-you ingredients into the food she prepared. Then one day she thought, “Wait?! We focus so much on what we’re putting into our body, but not what we’re putting on our body.” Feeling this disconnect in her own life, Mariska wasn’t afraid to walk into the kitchen and start mixing good-for-you ingredients into formulas that are good for you and your skin. As Mariska says, “to maintain our naturally beautiful skin, we don’t have to compromise our own well-being, or the well-being of our planet. Mother Nature has laid the bounty before us, we just need to respectfully utilize her offerings. I intend to do just that!”
