Currently running as a one-man show, Spencer Angeltvedt concieved the idea to create Lōa years ago. Although it has gone through many name changes before its inception (some pretty hilarious ones), the direction has always remained clear: Finding answers to common problems.
His journey began over 5 years ago when he found nothing seemed to work for his dry, sensitive skin. The drugstore products he was using were actually drying out his skin even more, which prompted him to do some research on the issue.
He soon found out that virtually all cosmetic products sold on the mainstream market were filled with toxic ingredients. After knowing first hand that they weren't good for his skin, he learned some of these ingredients can also absorb into the blood stream and cause a whole host of health implications - increased cancer risk, hormone imbalances, and liver toxicity.
So naturally, Spencer began experimenting with simple oils like rosehip and grapeseed, and noticed an almost immediate difference with his dry skin. He eventually discovered the added benefits of herbs, and learned how to infuse them into oils to make them even more effective.
Up until now, Spencer has done extensive research into hundreds of different botanicals. He has mastered his craft of formulating high-potency blends using both ancient and modern techniques.
This journey has lead him to take on a healthy, vegan lifestyle.
Lōa is a reflection of his love for nature, health, and beauty.
