Best Buds: Benefits of Florals in Skincare
Spring is in bloom! Flowers not only smell amazing, but they can also have some amazing benefits for your skin. Here are seven floral ingredients we love.
Rose water maintains pH balance of skin, reduces redness and clears pores. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties make it excellent for reducing acne and controlling excess oil. Spritz Rose Water Facial Mist after cleansing or throughout the day to hydrate, soften and balance skin.
Rose petals sprinkled into the Sugar Petals Body Polish creates a luxurious bathing experien
Anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal qualities soothe and protect skin, making it an ideal choice for sensitive skin as well as for reducing blemishes and other skin irritations. Chamomile promotes skin brightening, restores moisture and tones skin.
Chamomile also promotes lash growth and strength, making it an excellent ingredient in our Organic Mascara formula.
Evening primrose, packed with essential fatty acids, nourishes, moisturizes and soothes skin, reducing irritation and redness; it is a preferred ingredient for those with psoriasis and eczema. Primrose is also known to rejuvenate skin and enhance elasticity, aiding in reducing the signs of aging.
It’s no wonder primrose features prominently in our facial skincare and body moisturizers. A few products to try include Ultra Hydrating Body Crème, Whipped Body Butter, Gentle Face Crème, Overnight Rehab Crème, Organic Anti Aging Serum and Hand & Body Lotion.
Used for centuries by American Indians to soothe and condition skin, sunflower oil boasts a large number of skincare benefits. High in vitamins A, C, D and E plus essential fatty acids, sunflower oil protects skin from free radicals and other environmental stressors while reducing fine lines, wrinkles and further signs of aging. This gentle oil also helps to prevent moisture loss.
Keep skin glowing with Hydrating Facial Polish, Microdermabrasion Crème, Organic Anti Aging Serum, Green Tea Antioxidant Serum, Overnight Ultra Lift Crème and Organic Skin & Nail Balm. Don’t forget the lips with our collection of hydrating lip balms, lipsticks and glosses
As with many oils, jasmine adds extra hydration to skin without clogging pores, making it a good choice for all skin types. Antioxidants work their antiaging magic by protecting from environmental stressors and evening out skin tone. A natural antiseptic, jasmine also cleanses impurities.
Hydrating Facial Mist and Cleansing Gel serve jasmine’s many benefits. Jasmine is as beneficial to hair as to skin, and you’ll want to add the Botanical Shampoo and Botanical or Deep Conditioner to your haircare routine. As an added bonus, jasmine lends to the fragrant Balancing Act blend, and the aromatherapy mist can be useful when sprayed on skin.
One of the most widely used flowers in natural body care as well as one of the most scientifically studied natural skincare ingredients, lavender is famous for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Calm irritations, reduce redness and nourish skin with lavender essential oil and lavender extract.
Our gentle baby line showcases the benefits of lavender, but you’ll also fall in love with a myriad of products formulated with lavender including Lavender Vanilla Nourishing Body Oil, Lavender Mint Body Icing, Lavender Vanilla Mineral Bath Soak, Lavender Mint Prebiotic Body Wash and Liquid Foundation, to name a few.
Calendula (pot marigold)
Known for its ability to promote healing due to anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, calendula is also rich in antioxidants to protect skin from free radical damage. Calendula conditions and brightens skin as well as stimulates the production of collagen.
Calendula’s benefits can be found in a variety of soothing products including the bestselling Healing Elements Balm, Tea Tree & Citrus Face Crème, Hydrating Facial Polish and Detoxifying Charcoal Mask. Calendula petals are added to the Espresso Body Scrub and Lemongrass Signature Hand & Body Soap to soften skin.
