Launched in the autumn of 2020, Olivanna is a luxury skincare and wellness brand founded by Janine Summers.
A mother to four, Janine studied software engineering at university before embarking on a successful career in fashion and was intimately involved in creating what became one of Britain’s largest e-commerce companies.
As part of her mission to create conscious skincare for all generations, Janine launched my olivanna in early 2022, specifically with young skin in mind.
Janine envisaged a highly desirable, female-founded brand that was anchored in formulating clinically proven products using sustainably sourced, British-grown natural ingredients that make women of all ages look and feel beautiful in their skin.
Alongside launching Olivanna, Janine is busy transforming and renovating a farming estate near London into an entirely organic operation using traditional farming techniques.

This featherweight formula shields from sun exposure and hyperpigmentation with SPF 50, while its healing antioxidants help to reduce free radical damage and accelerate skin healing.
Packed with antioxidants, this mineral-based broad-spectrum SPF 50 not only helps to protect against UV rays and environmental pollution but helps to rebuild healthy cells and strengthen the skin barrier. Soothing niacinamide and rosemary leaf extract eases inflammation and redness caused by UV light. This reef-friendly formula has been designed with protecting the planet in mind, too.
Scientists estimate that up to 14,000 tons of sunscreen wash off our skin and into the ocean yearly. Two chemicals in particular – oxybenzone and octinoxate have been found to seriously harm coral. Our mineral SPF is reef-safe, so you can care for your skin without harming our ecosystem.
We pledge to rescue 10 plastic bottles for every SPF order made online. Plastic pollution is among the greatest threats to our oceans and marine life. In partnership with Greenspark, we build ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities, creating positive economic opportunities for those who collect them.
