About Founder Gay C. Timmons

“…how did I get here?” David Byrne Photo of Gay Timmons, Oh, Oh Organic Founder

My name is Gay Timmons and I started Oh, Oh Organic, Inc. in 2000.

For close to 40 years, my career has revolved around agricultural products. While we may not think of cosmetics as agricultural, every oil and butter and botanical comes from a grower's hands.

In 1991, I started working exclusively with organic ingredients. The first 10 years I sold ingredients and arranged private label processing for food items. I served on the Board of a major certifier and worked as an organic inspector. In 1998 I increasingly worked with cosmetic ingredients.

Why move to cosmetics? Well, it is more creative and fun but mainly because it all goes down the drain: shampoo, make-up, lotion, toothpaste, conditioner, deodorant, etc. – oh, except for the stuff that we eat – like lipstick and lip balm.

I have a simple picture in my head:

  • One third (roughly) of all pollution comes from conventional farming. Soil, water & air are all affected.
  • Using organic production methods reduces and repairs the effects of pollution.
  • Using more renewable and (technically) “clean” ingredients will make safer cosmetics.
  • Cleaner cosmetics = cleaner drain effluent = healthier planet.
  • A healthier planet = healthier people. We all need to be healthier. Our children need it even more.

Add some percentage of organic ingredients to your products – replace your oils, your sugars, and/or your fragrances with renewable, organic components and help support farmers who are cleaning up our planet.

Humans have decorated their bodies for hundreds of thousands of years. Let’s dedicate the next 100 years to converting personal care products to renewable ingredients made using non-polluting chemistry.

Save the planet. Look good doing it.
