There is a strong meaningful heritage behind OSMIUM® and the founder truly believes in the benefits of producing products with natural and plant-based therapeutic qualities. This explains unique ingredients such as Turmeric and Ginger in the Clean & Refresh Cleanser and Siberian Ginseng & Juniper in Age Defend Shave. 

OSMIUM® strengthens a rich heritage since 1917 of over 92 years within the field of plant medicine. The founder of the range comes from a family which is the world’s first, oldest and still the biggest producer of Ayurvedic herbal medicines. The pioneering member; the founder’s great grandfather, has written several books on plant therapeutics which to this day are used as reference material. 

The OSMIUM® range is available in some of the worlds finest department stores such as Selfridges, Ludwig Beck, leading online skincare websites and Luxury 5 Star Hotels such Spa 51, The Savoy & Pestana Chelsea to name a few.

I had the chance to try some samples from this brand.

Clean & Refresh Cleanser ($25.00 for 125ml)

93 % Natural and 99 % Preservative Free.

Whilst soap is harsh on facial skin and often causes irritations, the Clean & Refresh Cleanser is a creamy luxurious cleanser which will leave the skin feeling invigorated, clearer, and healthier. A superb non-foaming cleanser, it removes dirt, grime, excess oils, minimises blemishes, and will not dry out the skin. Free from Sulfates.

Contains coconut, ginger, turmeric and sunflower extracts.

I love that this cleanser is non-foaming (and free from sulfates), as foaming ones tend to dry my skin (and it's already dry enough). You don't need a big quantity of product as it's creamy and somewhat thick.

This cleanser didn't dry out my skin, and it didn't feel tight after use. That said, don't expect that squeaky clean feeling.

The smell is more natural, like a blend of herbs.

Recommend? yes

94 % Natural and 99.2 % Preservative Free.

A deluxe plant-rich non-foaming shaving cream, the Age Defend Shaving cream contains the most excellent ingredients to protect, soften and soothe skin whilst providing for an ultra-close and comfortable shave. Plant oils provide excellent razor glide, and the non-drying and calming formula reduces irritation, minimises redness and inflammation. Free from Sulfates.

Contains Siberian ginseng and juniper, aloe Vera and chamomile, and eucalyptus oil.

I was disappointed with this product as the consistency is so runny and light, it's a real mess to use and I cut myself a few times. It looks nice straight from the tube, but when applied to wet skin, it just melts and becomes annoyingly runny. I didn't know what to expect from a natural shaving cream as I'm used to thick and foamy shaving gel (or even, a plain old bar of soap or hair conditioner), but the texture of this one is more milky than creamy.

But I must say that I didn't notice irritation, redness or inflammation after use (expect a few cuts) - even though my skin didn't feel especially soft and soothed.

You can tell this shaving cream is meant for men by the smell, which is very fresh and manly.

Recommend? no

96 % Natural and 99 % Preservative Free.

A rich, silky and fast-absorbing matt formula, the Cellular Renew Anti – Ageing Crème delivers protection and resilience against external factors to help rebuild healthy cell layers and diminish lines and wrinkles. This anti-ageing cream also supports collagen production to deliver enhanced skin elasticity and firmness. The crème appears with a pleasant, cool refreshing fragrance.

Contains sodium hyaluronate, chitin, betaglucan and vitamins A, C and E.
The texture is rich and creamy, and it's quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving it totally matt, without even a hint of shine! Now that will make a man happy.

Like the cleanser, the smell is more natural, like a blend of herbs.

Recommend? yes

97 % Natural and 99.5 % Preservative Free.

A light, matt formulation, use this daily moisturiser for all-day optimum hydration. Peak Performance Energise & Renew Moisturiser will recharge and boost your skin with anti-oxidant vitamins and soothing plant actives to condition skin texture and promote smoothness.

Contains avocado, rosehip oils, juniper, menthol and allantoin, plus vitamins E and C.

The texture is a little lighter and more runny than Cellular Renew, but still creamy and a pleasure to use. It just melts into the skin, leaving it matt.

It smells similar to Cellular Renew, but a little fresher.

Recommend? yes
