Mount Sapo was born from a mission to make high quality, organic skincare oils more accessible; so that they may be used daily and generously, all over your body and face.
Intended as a tool to encourage us to engage with our body daily. Modern life so often keeps us living in our head, so our goal is to bring a sense of alignment to out-of-balance bodies and restore some daily joy, all-over!
Our skincare philosophy is based on the belief that our skin is naturally built to thrive and glow. Simplifying your skincare through the daily use of a nourishing and balancing all-over-oil, allows your skin to reset and restore to its natural glowing, healthy state.
Mount Sapo firmly believes in the use of oils is the key to glowing, healthy calm skin. Our microbiome is a protective layer made up of natural oils and good bacteria. When the microbiome is balanced the skin remains healthy, however a lot of skincare we commonly use strips or disrupts this protective layer, causing many skin conditions including dry itchy skin, inflammation, acne, and sensitivity.
FLOW & CIRCULATION
Our approach is based on supportive tools that restore balance and help aid our skin’s natural processes to heal. Addressing ageing, adult acne, congestion or stressed dull skin not just superficially but through movement and circulation. Facial massage, lymphatic drainage, acupressure are dramatically beneficial (and natural) tools to lift, invigorate, detoxify, sculpt and promote radiance to the skin.
Our body’s often overlooked lymphatic system is at the core of our approach to skin. A recycling system that moves likes rivers throughout our body is integral to our immune system and the overall flow of our bodily functions. Without its own central pump like the heart – our lymphatic system is reliant on our movement – exercise, breathing, and massage in order to filter bacteria, viruses, stagnation and toxins.
Lymphatic drainage greatly improves the skin’s tone, texture and radiance.
Our oils are only handmade in small, fresh batches from the highest quality organic ingredients by a lovely team in Dorset, UK.
We are proudly vegan, with no animal-derived ingredients, only from 100% natural plants. We are cruelty-free, never tested on animals. There are no parabens, fillers, chemicals or alcohols.
All ingredients are COSMOS Certified Organic by Europe’s leading organisation, which examines the quality and sustainability of the organic ingredients and packaging. Our All-Over-Oil is 99% organic because the essential Oil from Palo Santo wood cannot be organically grown as it is only obtained from its natural habitat.
Although for all-over-use this oil is specifically formulated for the face. Made with lightweight yet effective oils that don’t clog pores leaving skin balanced and replenished with a smooth velvety finish.
Our overall packaging approach is to ensure the use of non-plastic alternatives at every point possible. Our shipping packaging is all plastic-free with recycled boxes, recyclable paper and biodegradable packaging peanuts. The metallic sticker on our outer packaging tube is not recyclable but we hope that this tube is either kept for storing the bottle or is creatively re-used – perhaps to hold makeup brushes or as a pen pot! Lastly, our aim is to create small handmade batches that avoid waste.
PLANT FOR THE PLANET
Each month a portion of our profits is donated to Plant-For-The-Planet a non-profit organisation focussed on reforesting and education on the climate crisis. At Plant-for-the-Planet Academies, 90,000 children have become Climate Justice Ambassadors and explore all the important topics of the climate crisis and global justice.

BODY APPLICATION (in under a minute!)
The quickest, fuss-free use of the oils on the body is to apply straight after cleansing on damp skin.
After a shower or bath, you can gently dry excess water or leave as. Applying oil liberally over damp skin allows for super quick application and absorption, all over. It’s up to you whether you want to use a little or generous amount, depending on how your skin is feeling, but you don’t need to use much as it will go further from the added hydration.
This minute or two can be a moment to engage and check in with your body daily – acknowledging all your parts, curves, nooks, and creases. A chance to lightly massage certain areas that feel good.
HOW TO USE AS OIL CLEANSER
- Apply oil onto dry skin, all over face and neck, giving it
- Wet a small portion of a cloth with warm water (avoid hot!).
- Apply a few drops more of oil to the dampened portion of the face cloth.
- Gently massage the face, neck and back of the neck with the moistened cloth. Moving the cloth in gentle circles for a light exfoliation.
- Rinsing is optional
- If you have time, let the oil work its magic for 30s after you first apply
- Ensure you use a clean muslin or washcloth each time.
- Move the cloth in light circles – no need to be vigorous as the way the cloth is woven will provide gentle exfoliation.
- Any oil left on the skin is totally fine and in fact great!
- If you’re feeling like you need more moisture after cleansing, then massage in a few extra drops to your face and neck.
All-over-oil is to be enjoyed every day, all over, for all skin types (dry, acne, oily, sensitive or itchy)
OILY OR ACNE-PRONE
A common misconception is that oily or acne-prone skin should avoid using oils. It’s actually often the opposite, by embracing and working with your skin’s natural oils your skin rapidly starts to heal and reset the balance. We recommend removing harsh, stripping cleansers, acids, and exfoliators and instead simplify your routine using the all-over oil for 3-4 weeks to see notable improvements. If you’d rather use our oil solely as a moisturiser, we highly recommend using a very gentle nourishing cleanser.
All-over-oil softens, nourishes and quenches thirsty parched skin by nourishing the skin’s barrier rather than stripping or disrupting our natural PH.
Whilst this product is suitable for sensitive skin, essential oils are powerful and hardworking, and unique to the individual user – therefore top using irritation occurs. You could always use it on your body instead which is likely to be far less sensitive.
