Osmia Organics - Our Founder
n 2012 Sarah Villafranco, Md launched Osmia Organics after taking a soap-making class at a local ranch. This was not what she had envisioned for her life, as she was an emergency room physician with business experience. But she knew love when she felt it, and after taking this soap class she fell in Love.
As a kid, Sarah would watch my mom applying her face oils. These were the rare times Sarah would see her mom slow down, breathe deeply, and drop into the moment. Sarah focused on these memories and was inspired to create healthy products with extraordinary ingredients, that would entice people to care for themselves (and the earth) with greater intention.
Sarah loves what she does now more than she could ever have imagined. She misses a few things about the ER, but feels like Osmia Organics is a broader brand of medicine. Osmia energizes people to engage in their own wellness through skin health and sensory experience. She wants Osmia products to remind people of their own power, through simple daily choices, to be joyful and alive. This is the best medicine she could ever have the privilege of prescribing.

Osmia Organics Reviews
Purely Simple Face Cream
Nellie - "I was hesitant to buy this Osmia Organics moisturizer. Thought maybe too much hype. But it works great day and night for me and my combo skin. And I do not get any breakouts from it. I love it under my liquid foundation during the day too. Excited I finally made the leap of faith!"
Gizem - "I LOVE Osmia Organics and the founder Sarah! This is one of the best face creams. It last a long time so don’t let the price scare you. Honestly, other toxic products aren’t cheap so I’d rather spend my money on still a little bit pricey but amazing good skin products. This is a regular for me."
Erin - "This is a great water based light weight cream. I have used this Osmia Organics product many times, repurchased it in hope that it would help with my perioral dermatitis and I am happy with the results so far."
Jean - "I am not usually a fan of soaps for your face but this Osmia Organics product does keep the oil at bay for quite a while."
Sarah - "I received a sample of this face soap in a previous Safe and Chic order and I loved it so much I had to buy more. Leaves your skin feeling clean without feeling tight and dry. Will be buying this soap by Osmia Organics again."
Tamara - "I love Osmia Organics and all of her products, this is a great cleanser for blemish-prone skin. It really does a deep clean and gets everything off including makeup, grime, oil, or sunscreen!"
Kayla - "I love this Osmia Organics chapstick. I now have a few around the house. My daughter and mom love it too."
Meghan - "2nd time buying. I love this stuff. it softens quickly and keeps my lips healthy. it doesn't coat with a waxy feeling. I usually use this at bedtime and it stays on through the night and helps even when I have allergies and have to breathe through my mouth. I like that Osmia Organics is made with good clean ingredients and I don't mind using it on my little girl too, she loves it. it does have a slight chocolatey scent to it at first. I don't mind that at all."
Heather S - "I absolutely love Lip Doctor by Osmia Organics. I won’t buy another chapstick again! This is my 5th time going back for more Lip Doctor!"
Balance Facial Serum
Elizabeth - "This is my favorite Osmia Organics product. It does exactly what it promises, and I honestly can’t go a day without it. It keeps my skin even, clear and moisturized. It also smells nice, which is a bonus!"
Peggy - "A small amount goes a long way. It’s simple to use and makes my skin so soft. I previously had cystic-like bumps over a great deal of my face. They only kept getting worse over the course of many years, until I began using this Osmia Organics serum. Totally turned my life around."
Sheena - "I love this! It has changed my breakout-prone skin. It is so moisturizing. I was scared of being moisturized before this product but not anymore. My skin loves this Osmia Organics product!"
Spotless Blemish Oil
Kira R - "Good spot treatment. Very tiny bottle (but super cute). Nice herbal smell (definitely noticeable - but natural). Helps calm down inflammation when used throughout the day. Like the roll-on applicator for mess-free application."
Alanah - "Great Clean Blemish Roller. I got this with my last Safe & Chic purchase and I do think it helped with my hormonal acne. I've heard many people say to increase effectiveness to reapply it throughout the day. The smell is not my favorite, but I do like that it is different than the typical straight tea tree oil scent most natural acne products tend to smell like. It did not burn for me and it seems like the applicator does a good job at conserving the product. Overall Osmia Organics makes me really happy!"
Jen - "I’ve tried several other blemish oils and this is the only one that truly stops a new blemish on its tracks. I apply it as the last step in my skincare routine wherever I have a blemish or feel one coming in. The blemish will be substantially smaller or gone A few hours after application. I also use it throughout the day to help with inflammation. It really works."
Rachel - "Love it 💕. I’m taking Accutane so my lips are super dry! I wanted a safe organic option. This Osmia Organics balm is great. It makes my lips feel very soft and smooth. I wish it came with an applicator because I hate to put my fingers in the jar. I’ve been using clean q-tips which is a little wasteful but it works. So it’s not a balm I can carry around all day but it works great when I’m home. Also, it looks thick in the jar but melts when it hits your lips or fingers. Love it. Will definitely buy again."
Joy - "I'm picky about my lip balm, I've tried so many of them, even made my own (which I still use certain times). I first bought this Osmia Organics night-time treatment, and loved it. Then I started going for it during the day when my lips felt dry, and honestly, I've need to use it less: it's just THAT good. I'll definitley repurchase when the time comes."
Nicole - "This Osmia Organics product is the best I have used. I frequently have cracked/chapped lips and putting this on before bed each night has made a HUGE difference."
Purely Gentle Mud Cleanser
Chelsea - "I have tried so many different cleansers and have experienced either dry or oily skin and breakouts - that is until I tried this one! My skin LOVES this Osmia Organics cleanser. It is so gentle, yet does a great job of getting your skin clean and it leaves your skin feeling clean, refreshed and not oily or dry!"
Sara - "This Osmia Organics product has transformed my skin! I’ve struggled with acne for years and this product (along with a few other Osmia Organics must-haves) has helped my skin so much. I’ve found my forever skincare brand."
Bethany - "I love the mud cleanser! Myself and my 2 daughters use this, 47, 25, and 18. It’s perfect for all of us in our different skin stages. A very gentle yet effective cleanser from Osmia Organics"
