Founder's Formula for Skincare Success

For Immediate Release


Honokaa, HI, July 11, 2019 - Oceanica Skincare was founded by two ocean-loving, globe-trotting, eco-conscious beauty junkies who decided to curate sea plants from their favorite ocean playground and botanicals from the neighboring lands to come up with a powerful cream that creatively encompasses that region.

Jacci Delaneau and Laura Blom met in their twenties while traveling the world. They parted ways to finish college: Jacci with a degree in Marine Biology and Laura a diploma in Interactive Multimedia Technology. With the experience of 60 countries traveled, they are pouring their knowledge, passions and skills into an ocean-based indie brand that speaks to the well traveled, natural skincare loving, eco-conscious consumer.

“I studied marine biology in college and was very interested in how sea plants are so great for skin and also more sustainable than terrestrial plants. But it wasn’t until I went back to school for Advanced Organic Cosmetic Science that I felt compelled to create a natural brand using them but without the addition of essential oils.” - Jacci Delaneau, Founder

They are starting with a line of 3 moisturizers for maturing skin called Beneath the Surface, a nice play on words for an ocean brand. Not only are their ingredients found beneath the surface of the ocean, but their products work beneath the surface of the skin. But most importantly, they believe the true beauty of women is always beneath the surface.

They offer a deeply hydrating cream with sea kelp bioferment called Rehydration and inspired by Hawaii where Jacci went to university and settled afterwards. The UV Repair cream inspired by the Caribbean Islands helps repair sun damage with red algae and the Brightening cream with its anti-oxidants evens out skin tone using sea fennel from the Indian Ocean.

“We are already developing more products, including 100% active toners and serums. What makes us different, besides choosing to base it on sea plants rather than land plants, is we do not use essential oils which is hard to find in a natural brand. This makes our products safer for sensitive skin than most.” - Jacci Delaneau, Founder

“I love how using sea plants make our products more sustainable. They grow much faster than land plants and leave less of a foot print. The natural skin care industry is putting so much pressure on the land, and we need to lighten the load.” - Laura Blom, Co-Founder

Oceanica makes clean skin care with exotic ingredients for worldly women with wanderlust. Beauty secrets from around the globe permeate every product, infusing skin with mystical botanicals, soothing sea plants, and wild salt air. Unlike most natural skincare brands, our solutions are free of harsh essential oils and perfect for all skin types including the very sensitive.
