The Arctic Circle—a region known for its extreme environmental conditions—is home to some of nature’s best-kept skincare secrets.
We source Alpine Caribou Moss, a lichen native to the Arctic tundra, where it thrives amid nature’s harshest elements. Alpine Caribou Moss has been scientifically proven to improve skin’s elasticity and contains powerful antioxidants that help fight UV radiation and guard against environmental pollution. You’ll find it in every one of our products.
Mia and Laura were frustrated in finding the perfect gear to protect their husbands’ skin from the extreme conditions of their outdoor lifestyles…both avid rowers, skiers, snowboarders, and cyclists (hence the name, Oars + Alps). Every option was too expensive, full of chemicals, tailored to women, or just plain inconvenient. Sasha is prone to skin cancer. Stoney has extremely dry skin. Both had long relied on chemical-packed products and their wives’ expensive creams. So with Mia’s MIT science and engineering expertise and Laura’s ecommerce and marketing savvy, they set out to make something better.
We believe in 5 a.m. workouts, sweat dripping down our faces, spontaneous sprints, swimming with stingrays, hiking uncharted trails, handstands on the beach, and catching just one more wave. We are a team of doers, wanderers, activists, and dreamers. We chase the unknown, fight for the underdog, triangulate the complexities of trade winds, prefer running barefoot, and always follow our instincts home. Pushing our personal limits isn’t a goal; it’s a state of being.
And we’ll gladly race you up that mountain to see the sunrise…because let us tell you about that sunrise...
