OLEHENRIKSEN Skincare was born out of young man’s perseverance to heal his own skin. His story starts in a small Danish town, where at the age of 18, Ole was plagued with cystic acne, forcing his normally bright personality to turn inwards. Finally, after a serendipitous meeting with a renowned holistic skincare healer, he was inspired to embrace the transformative power of skincare. As the acne faded away, Ole’s bright and glowing personality returned. Transforming lives through skin wellness has become Ole’s life’s work, and it was this commitment to transformative skincare that led him to become the world’s first celebrity facialist. The “Ole Glow” became so coveted, that, in 1983, he decided to bottle his expertly crafted formulas and launch his namesake brand, OLEHENRIKSEN Skincare.

Today, the mission continues. OLEHENRIKSEN believes in a proven skincare philosophy – exfoliation combined with replenishment for glowing skin. We believe in the skin-renewing power of acids – vitamin-C and AHAs are our mainstays. We believe in the Scandinavian principles of wellness. We believe in skincare that’s a joy to use—because a happy face is a beautiful face

We are OLEHENRIKSEN skincare. Clinical Scandinavian skincare. Joy and results in every bottle since 1983. OLEHENRIKSEN is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and phthalate-free for bright skin with a clean conscience.

OLEHENRIKSEN was acquired in 2011 by KENDO Brands, a beauty brand incubator owned by Paris-based LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the world’s leading luxury products group. For further information, please visit www.olehenriksen.com.
