Why natural products are so important for your health

  • Your skin absorbs up to 64% of what you put on it!
  • Natural products are great at reducing free radical damage, which can help reduce the look of pores, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation and more.  There are 1000s of years of research and use studies on the effects of natural ingredients, but they can't be patented so large corporations have avoided them until the public became interested in using them again.

Why you should choose Olio Caldo's products

  • 90% of our ingredients are certified organic.  They are all 100% Natural - We have signed the NIRC Truth in Labeling Pledge.  Sourcing Wild crafted and Local products is also important to us. 
  • Most conventional beauty products contain pesticides and harmful chemicals that are absorbed through your skin, including methyl, butyl and propyl parabens, propylene or butylene glycols, petroleum, sulphates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, phthalates, GMO, silicones, artificial dyes and fragrances, formaldehyde, and more! Do you want these on your skin and circulating in your body?   Most "natural" products on the market contain some of these ingredients.  We use NONE of these!
  • Most natural or organic products contain a large amount of water or fruit juice.  Most of our products have no water (we only add the smallest amount possible if necessary because of the nature of the product) - they are full strength and concentrated - a little goes a long way!
  •  We have chosen amber colored glass for our packaging - it does the best job of protecting the potency of the ingredients within.
  • We use high quality, expensive oils in large quantities rather than using mostly inexpensive carrier oils.
  • We do our research!  We test the products on people with specific conditions like rosacea or psoriasis.  We work really hard to know the which products will help or hurt your specific conditions so that we can make the perfect product for you - and just for you!
  • Our Founder's Story -

I am a grandmother, and this is my 45th birthday picture. My skin used to have uneven texture, with large pores and melasma along my jaw line.  My doctor was recommending strong chemicals, lasers, peels, etc.  I didn't think that was right for me, for the way I live.  

For years now I have used nothing but Olio Caldo, and all of my issues have disappeared. Very few people believe my age.  This is the story of the company's creation...

Olio Caldo…Hot Oil in Italian.  Oils are the basis for our products, and they do amazing things!

My name is Mondae Hott, and I was first introduced to a healthier way of eating in 1989.  I worked with someone who was passionate about organic food and farming, and she taught me a lot – like how to use vegetarian sources of protein so that I wasn’t so reliant on animals.  I really learned what to put in my body, but I don’t remember talking about what I put on my body. 

Like most good consumers, I felt science knew best.  If I wanted to prevent wrinkles, and reduce pore size, pharmaceutical products were the way to go.  Of all the places to have an epiphany, mine happened on a cruise ship.  I treated myself to a spa day, which included a body wrap, during which they used a cellulite cream.  Afterwards, the eager saleswoman sold me the same products she had used during my treatment.  I followed the directions, and within a day or so I was no longer enjoying the cruise.  I was jittery and couldn’t sleep.  I realized that the cream contained a large amount of caffeine, and that I was absorbing it into my bloodstream through my skin.  I was shocked!  

I had been vaguely aware that many of the ingredients used in the cosmetic industry were not good for you, but I thought I was safe as they were on the outside of my body.  What was I going to do now?  I began researching brands and products that were considered “healthy”.   There are many that make this claim, but why would a face cream need 30+ ingredients?  I discover that cosmetics are untested or policed by the FDA. We rely on companies to be honest in their labeling, and the language of regulation could be interpreted in many ways.  I encourage you to check it out for yourself.  

My requirements for products I would use myself were:  natural, organic, fair trade, no fillers, chemicals or additives, and effective!  I knew I could make them myself.  This way I would know exactly what each ingredient was, where it came from, and what its use was.  I experimented for a year to get the mix just right.  

Over time people began to ask me what I was using - why I looked so great, almost glowing, with even tone and no spots. I decided to share the products with my family and friends. Over the next few years they became guinea pigs as I worked on the different formulas and condition specific ingredients, and they have now become regular customers.

I was convinced to share my products with the world and opened the online shop on December 17, 2012.  We are located in Northern California, in the beautiful Sierra foothills and we make all of our products here at our shop in Cedar Ridge.  Consultations make sure the products are specific to your needs - contact us any time:  Email, phone, Skype, in person!
