Our story

The Oil Cleansing Company was founded by Husband and Wife team Peter and Cherie Gregory.  The idea came while Cherie was studying with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) one of the worlds leading holistic nutrition and lifestyle schools, based in New York.  It was while studying to become a certified Health Coach that she discovered that regardless of genes, beautiful clear skin was possible.  Her study led her to learning about the age old oil cleansing method and that certain combinations of oils had different healing and nourishing effects on the skin. Cherie had suffered from cystic acne and was desperate for a solution. Armed with this new knowledge of the oil cleansing method, Cherie began formulating her own cleanser, testing it first on herself and then after others started noticing the change in her skin, her friends and family. The demand for the cleanser grew, and with the encouragement of those around her, Cherie, with the help of her husband Peter founded The Oil Cleansing Company. From here she went on to develop the Night Oil, one of our most popular products, and the Day Oil.
