At Omy Laboratoires, no detail is left to chance. From research to production, all operations are regrouped at our Canada laboratory to ensure strict quality control of our products.
Built to ISO 22716 standards, our laboratory meets the most rigorous local and international industry standards.
Composed of chemists, a doctor of pharmacy, biochemists, engineers, and formulators, the Omy R&D team is tasked with studying and selecting ingredients with proven efficacy for use in our skincare products, and developing formulations that harness their optimal benefits.
Within our minimalist formulas, each ingredient has a precise function. Their optimal concentration is established through meticulous in-house analysis. As transparency is paramount at Omy, a technical data sheet for each ingredient is available on our website.
All Omy skincare products are formulated and packaged in our laboratory; then, they are shipped directly to our customers. This ensures freshness and minimizes waste by adjusting production to demand. Personalized care products, in particular, are formulated on their shipping day.
Offering maximum freshness enables us not only to guarantee the optimal efficacy of our ingredients, but also to avoid the use of harmful preservatives such as phenoxyethnol and parabens. Instead, we use post-biotic technologies that respect the skin microbiome to prolong the efficacy of our skincare products.
Relying on local production isn't the only way for Omy to be close to its customers.
A team of skin care specialists is available by appointment, for telephone or video consultations, to find the right formula for your needs, discuss the results of your SkinAI analysis or follow up on your new routine.
Trained to deal with rare allergies and complex skin concerns, our team is able to support with diverse and unique needs. Thanks to our satisfaction guarantee, our experts will help reformulate your skin care routine if it doesn't meet your expectations within 28 days.
We favor a co-creative approach with our customers. Your questions and suggestions are always welcome. And don't hesitate to let us know if you'd like to be added to our list to try future products.
