Osmia is a wellness brand based out of Carbondale, Colorado creating products made with natural ingredients of exceptional quality. Osmia’s brand mission is energizing people to engage in their own wellness through skin health and sensory experience. “We’re here to help you feel healthy in your skin, serving up tiny moments of delight along the way”.
The design for their body soap packaging reflects the brand with its artful combination of natural + high quality + a joyful and sensorial experience.
The painted Lupine flower on the packaging has been embraced by the brand as it is native to Carbondale. It’s a whimsical touch of the hand that is uniquely painted for each scent to reflect the ingredients within each bar of soap.
When the box is slid open a colorful fortune card sits on top of each bar of soap with inspiring and sometimes playful quotes. This slide tray construction with insert card allows the user to easily open and close the box to experience the scent, while still protecting the bar inside. The construction serves as great shipping protection and is quick and easy assembling / fulfillment for the Osmia packing team (as all bars are handmade and packaged in-house at the Carbondale headquarters.)
Boxes are constructed of FSC® certified paper and printed with UV inks, which do not contain solvents or release VOCs. A tree is planted in Colorado with each order – over 50,000 trees planted and counting!
