Our Ethos —

Why we do what we do.

How it all started

After battling acne and deep scaring for more than half my life, I discovered the remarkable changes in my skin using Prickly Pear Seed Oil whilst living abroad. I used my last drops upon my return home and discovered that it was not the easiest oil to source in Australia. Thus began the journey of ‘by oli oli’, the intention to kindly source, create and provide 100% natural and traceable self care products to our customers leaving the lightest footprint we can.

What we are doing

We are a very young brand, with big intentions to contribute to positive action and change within the beauty industry. We hand fill each bottle, lovingly label and box the product ourselves, in natural daylight, in small batches in Melbourne, Australia.
We source our Prickly Pear Seed oil from a small sustainable farm in Northern India, free from the use of pesticides and fertilizer (optimal for both you and the planet).
The seeds are meticulously hand picked from the Prickly Pear cactus botanically known as Opuntia Ficus Indica or Barbary Fig, then delicately cold pressed to give us a 100% pure oil.
The Prickly Pear cactus is one of the world's most sustainable crops requiring little to no water. It is also one of the world's most unique oils bursting with a myriad of incredible benefits. The scent is often described as fruity, floral and even sometimes nutty. This can vary batch to batch depending on the country of origin and the time of year.
