ICYMI, we introduced OUSIAS by BSE at the start of January 2024: new skincare, new wellness, and quite literally everything you need for the perfect Saturday night self-care. If you’re ready to embrace your holistic wellness journey, read on below for a sneak peek into our conversation with Rosiane Larochelle, founder of Ousias.
In the ever-evolving landscape of wellness, it's refreshing to discover brands that go beyond the surface and delve into the intricacies of holistic care. We recently had the pleasure of chatting with the founder of Ousias, Rosiane Larochelle––a full-time social care worker and a passionate mental health advocate.
THE OUSIAS MISSION
Born at the onset of the pandemic, Ousias englobes Rosiane’s favourite wellness items. Intending to make self-care an integral part of our lives, the brand encompasses skincare, holistic body care, supplementation, wellness (such as aromatherapy), and feminine self-pleasure––all aspects of a comprehensive approach to well-being.
Since then, the brand has been on a mission to remove the shame associated with eroticism and sexuality. By bringing self-care to the forefront of our daily routines, Ousias seeks to redefine wellness as a 360-degree lifestyle that goes beyond skin-deep, covering all facets of a balanced and healthy life.
COMMITMENT TO CLEAN
One standout feature of Ousias is its commitment to clean beauty and wellness. The skincare products offered are predominantly natural, non-toxic, and vegan. Ousias challenges the misconception that natural products are less effective, emphasizing the use of high-quality ingredients that deliver tangible results. The brand takes pride in its dedication to promoting products that not only nourish the skin but also contribute to overall well-being.
OUSIAS X BSE
Ousias aligns seamlessly with BSE's mission to empower individuals of all ages and genders to feel comfortable in their skin. While BSE's products are science-backed and exclusive to the medical realm, Ousias complements this approach by offering an accessible range of quality, holistic, and natural products for everyone. Ousias by BSE opens the door to embark on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and unapologetic self-love.
RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS

Rosiane: Great question! I would say faster shipping, new brands, new items (*wink wink*), and new wellness experiences if you open yourself up to them!
Q: What’s your current Ousias by BSE obsession?
Rosiane: I am obsessed with the Agent Nateur line and how it brings plumpness and hydration to my skin. And if I may be a bit cheeky––I absolutely love my Womanizer!
