For 40 years, guests at the Optimum Health Institute (OHI) have been secure in the knowledge that their food, accommodations and entire environment is carefully scrutinized to make sure everything is the purist, most organic, safest and most aesthetically pleasing available. It is this commitment to providing the healthiest choices that led to the creation of OHI for life ® .
After a week, or several, of savoring the live, raw, organic vegan meals and the eco-friendly and peaceful setting, guests were interested in continuing the healing OHI lifestyle at home. Vitamix blenders, Champion juicers and a wide variety of inspirational and motivational books and materials were available through the OHI Store. When it came to getting skin and hair care products that lived up to OHI’s exacting standards, however, guests couldn’t find selections that satisfied 100%.
Skin is the body’s largest organ. During the cooler – or downright frosty – winter temperatures, it’s at the mercy of harsh outdoor weather, and moisture-sucking central heating indoors. Both extremes can lead to dry, itchy skin. Even in warmer weather, skin and hair respond best to organic products with natural ingredients.
When the OHI Store couldn’t find personal care products that delivered reliable year round results with the highest quality ingredients, OHI tackled the problem head-on, and decided to create them.
Enlisting the help of a globally-respected skin and hair care expert and teams of laboratory researchers, OHI invested several years in finding the most reliable sources of organic ingredients, testing various formulas and eventually creating a complete line of skin and hair care products worthy of the OHI for life ® name, and developed exclusively for OHI guests.
The line uses the highest percentage of Certified Organic ingredients available, enriched with vitamins, antioxidants and precious oils to protect and nourish the skin. Organic wheatgrass juice, an essential part of the OHI healing program to detoxify the body, is one of the elements in each of the six skin care products. The line includes Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, with tiny jojoba beads suspended in a healing Aloe Vera base to gently exfoliate the skin and increase circulation in morning and evening cleansing.
The cleanser is followed by a Balancing Spray Toner with vitamins and antioxidants to nourish the skin. A light, citrus-scented Moisturize & Protect Day Crème protects the skin from environmental pollutants and extreme weather conditions, while the Evening Replenishing Complex delivers extra nourishment that penetrates the skin during sleep.
OHI for life ® Intensive Anti-Oxidant Masque shields the skin from free radicals and promotes the growth of healthy new cells. It’s among the highest rated ORAC scored masques currently made available. ORAC, or Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a unit of measurement for antioxidants developed by the National Institute on Aging at the National Institutes of Health.
The last skin care product currently available in the OHI for life ® line is the Gel Body Wash, which cleanses and moisturizes without the chemicals and harsh compounds found in other bath products.
After receiving an enthusiastic response to the OHI for life ® skin care products, OHI expanded the line, and created Gentle Cleansing Shampoo and Moisturizing Conditioner. Instead of using harsh detergents that strip the hair of natural moisture and nutrients, the shampoo is rich in mild surfactants derived from fatty and amino acids, with vegetable and coconut oils. The gentle formula cleanses the hair with a luxurious hydrating lather.
OHI for life ® Moisturizing Conditioner pampers the hair and scalp and detangles with its exacting blend of Certified Organic Oils including Olive, Jojoba and Sunflower. Organic extracts like Rosemary, Lavender and Green Tea hydrate, bring shine, and provide antioxidants for protection. Comfrey Root helps prevent dryness and stimulate hair growth.
