The EO® Story

EO Staff Harvesting Rose Geranium

EO® is a family owned and operated, Certified Organic Manufacturer of personal care products using the highest grade natural and certified organic ingredients. We create products that are natural, gentle, effective and free from animal testing. We know that providing a product with integrity and sustainability is a choice and we make this choice consciously to ensure that only the finest products are created.

We believe the formulation of beneficial and synergistic herbs, essential oils and natural ingredients is an art form. We search for ingredients with uniquely beneficial traditional and therapeutic properties. We also choose not to include synthetic colors, fragrances or harsh chemicals in our products. It is our mission and our privilege to develop our own innovative and efficacious formulas, source our natural ingredients, manufacture, and find the most environmentally friendly packaging to fill and ship each and every EO® product.

Based in Marin County, CA, EO® was founded in 1995 by Brad Black and Susan Griffin-Black. EO® creates and manufactures the products that bear our name in our 22,000 sq. ft. organically certified facility with the help of more than 30 employees who are the force and the heart behind EO®.

Our product line encompasses more than 100 items containing our signature essential oil blends (EO® stands for Essential Oils). Essential oils are steam distilled directly from flowers, leaves, bark and wood without any adulteration or synthetic additives, as it was intended directly from nature, and giving you products that smell amazing.

EO's® Driving Philosophy on why we remain independently owned and operated:

  1. We truly enjoy the work we have chosen to do
  2. We believe that what we do makes a positive difference in the world and to our customers
  3. Authentic natural and sustainable personal care products are possible and more than simply a marketing term
  4. We aspire to be a model of how businesses should operate in our larger environment
