Ursa Major crafts low-maintenance, high-impact natural skincare that’s clean, effective, and offers a sublime experience. Made with powerful active ingredients, refreshing natural aromas, and clean, lightweight textures.

Founder Story

Ursa Major founders Oliver Sweatman and Emily Doyle first started their all-natural skincare brand when they moved from New York City to the wilderness of Vermont. They wanted to live a more natural, active, and balanced lifestyle close to family and the outdoors — a move that also led them to launch Ursa Major, so they could help friends switch to delightful, plant-powered skincare.

Ursa Major now provides many, many friends (and friends of friends!) with a healthy and highly effective skin care solution that’s also a real pleasure to use – a robust, natural alternative to the bland, toxin-laden products that pervade today’s marketplace. Ursa Major's advanced formulations artfully blend nature’s most effective ingredients to provide exceptional performance and a truly sublime experience.

Impact Story

Research now shows toxins (parabens, phthalates, sulfates, etc) penetrate the skin and accumulate in the body’s organs, potentially causing serious health issues over time. With recent advances in ‘green chemistry,’ it’s now possible to go natural without sacrificing efficacy or experience. In fact, today it’s possible to formulate potent natural products that outperform conventional synthetics while offering a more subtle, refined experience. Ursa Major does just that — making beautiful, all-natural products that are free of petrochemicals, SLS, SLES, parabens, synthetic fragrances and colours, glycols, silicones, and PEGs. Always.
