Since 1934 the Gardiner family have been making traditional family skincare products over three generations since Joseph Gardiner created the first Family Apothecary in Ireland.

Since then, we have pioneered scientific advances in dermatological skincare in our Irish research and manufacturing facility.

All of our dermatological formulations are safety tested to the highest international Pharma standards and independently certified. This is why our formulations are trusted and recommended by pharmacists and medical professionals for the treatment and management of chronic skin conditions.

Ovelle has strong links with medical professionals and is a long term supplier into hospitals and aid agencies world wide.

Our expertise in making traditional Ovelle apothecary products like Silcock’s Base, Aqueous Cream and Emulsifying Ointment allowed us to draw on dermatological advances in skincare to create Elave sensitive skincare which helps prevent flare up of sensitive including eczema, dermatitis and rosacea prone skin.
