OBAL OIL was developed by two friends working in the fashion industry who were looking to solve different problems. When makeup artist Walter Obal could not find a moisturizer that would quickly absorb into skin and work as a base for makeup, he began creating his own oil and testing it out on good friend Katherine Fleming. At the same time, Kate was looking for a safe and gentle solution for her problematic skin. A food cleanse inspired Walter to translate the healing benefits of raw, organic and non-gmo foods into a topical beauty product that naturally solved Kate’s skin issues. The two originally supplied the face oil to their close friends working on movie sets and advertising and editorial shoots. Eventually they created OBAL OIL, a brand devoted to maintaining the purity of ancient ingredients found in nature to produce a more conscious and healthy line of skincare.
