With established clean standards and healthy formulations, OLIKA is committed to enhancing public health and environmental safety.

“Made OLIKA Clean is our philosophy. It informs how we marry sustainable packaging, vegan formulations, carbon footprint reduction, biodiversity in farming, and how we serve our consumers in the wellness economy.”—Janelle Hailey, Head of Marketing, E-Commerce & Innovation

“Working with SciveraLENS allows us to engage in a much more rigorous process of proving that every ingredient under consideration is indeed safe.”—Alastair Dorward

SciveraLENS provides the thought leadership and science required to sort out good information from misinformation. For example, essential oils are commonly perceived to be more environmentally friendly than synthetic fragrances, which is not necessarily true. Some essential oils can be quite harmful to humans and the environment. With assessment results from SciveraLENS, OLIKA thoughtfully chose ingredients used in product formulas that still delight the senses while including clean synthetics.

“We are launching a new product soon, and we leveraged Scivera to select ingredients that ensured each element lived up to the Made OLIKA Clean vision. SciveraLENS addressed a capability gap that was critical to OLIKA.”—Janelle Hailey

As OLIKA is a young brand, it doesn’t make sense to maintain a team of toxicologists, so partnering with SciveraLENS and its library of tens of thousands of chemicals and over 4,000 fully verified chemical hazard assessments analyzed by Scivera’s team of board-certified toxicologists is essential. SciveraLENS has enabled OLIKA to identify chemicals of question, find safer chemical alternatives, and solidify the components of product development. This level of credibility allows OLIKA to contend with large global competition.

“We see a lot of hype and misinformation with the clean beauty category, which is why our partnership with Scivera is so important. It’s us coming together with sound information. We let the science and data speak first. Our ability to keep clean formulations at the forefront with facts gives our retail partners the opportunity to shine and be the hero as they provide better-for-you options to consumers.”—Janelle Hailey

OLIKA’s utilization of SciveraLENS allows the brand to embrace the world of evolving science and minimize its environmental footprint while increasing clean hygiene safety.
