We are on a mission to protect sensitive skin

Since 1934, when Joseph Gardiner founded the first family apothecary in Ireland, the Gardiner Family have been creating sensitive skincare solutions which combine our expertise and heritage in traditional formulations with the latest dermatological advances to provide expert, cruelty-free, safe and sustainable skincare.

For three generations we have drawn upon our dermatological skills to create and manufacture products at our GMP facility in Ireland which combine traditional formulations with licensed medicines, medical devices and biocide specialist skincare.

Ovelle's experience in producing traditional apothecary products like our Silcock’s Base, Aqueous Cream and Emulsifying Ointment enabled us to leverage dermatological advances to create Elave Sensitive, which helps prevent flare-ups in sensitive and dry skin conditions.
Elave Sensitive is about daily protection of the skin barrier in a world where 1 in 4 babies develop sensitive baby eczema and 1 in 8 adults have eczema, dermatitis and rosacea-prone skin. That means that many of us are living with uncomfortable skin sensitivity and many of us are searching for a solution.

All our formulations are safety-tested to the highest international Pharma and ethical standards, and are independently certified. This is why they are trusted and recommended by pharmacists, as well as medical and healthcare professionals, for the treatment and management of chronic skin conditions and skin barrier protection.

Ovelle skincare is proud of our strong links with healthcare and our record as a longstanding supplier to hospitals and aid agencies worldwide, including UNICEF, UNWRA and Medicines Sans Frontieres (MSF), of skin barrier protectants and disinfectants for displaced people and, especially, children.

Proudly innovated and manufactured in Ireland, we make a promise to our customers on the high efficacy and low-irritancy profile of our sensitive skincare solutions. We are passionate in not only what we do, but how we do it.

We ensure our solutions are:

  • Made In Ireland
  • Sustainable Skincare
  • Fully Recyclable
  •  Extremely Low-Irritancy
  • PETA Cruelty-Free
  • PETA Vegan-Approved (with the exception of Manuka Honey and Beeswax in select solutions)
