Our Story 2017-02-17T15:19:05+00:00

SELLWOOD bodycare is an artisan skin care company dedicated to creating  soothing products  from healing botanical oils.  If you suffer from dry skin, eczema, allergies, acne and/or dermatitis, or simply want to detoxify your beauty routine, give us a try and see what a difference well-formulated products can make.  Our products are minimally packaged using recycled materials and we use certified organic oils whenever possible and available locally. All of our products are paraben-free, SLS-free, aluminum-free, and formaldehyde-free.

SELLWOOD bodycare does more than just create natural skin care products…

We are an Oregon Benefit Company and and in addition to creating high quality products that are good for the skin and gentle on the planet,  SELLWOOD is guided by a social and environmental mission. We donate 5% of our proceeds to organizations and programs that are good for the community and good for the planet.

As part of our commitment to the community we teach various classes on how to make your own safe, natural, and healthy body care products. We used to teach private classes but now teach solely through the Multnomah County Library System so that everyone can take our classes, regardless of financial ability.

Classes are in-depth and thorough, covering everything from the chemistry of formulation and safety to how to color and fragrance your creations naturally.  Suitable for novice and experienced soap-makers.

Products are sold online and through local merchants listed on our Stores & Wholesale page.
