Herbalist made botanical & herbal skincare. Bare with a focus.
One ingredient at a time.
When it comes to todays skincare, it is easy to gravitate to what is new and trending. Take retinol (synthetic vitamin A) for example or vitamin c serums. We gravitate towards them because they have the full force of science behind them and all the big brands have them, so they must have something nature cannot produce...right?
Let's talk about it. Some of the main reasons you would use a retinol would be to reap the benefits of increased collagen production, unclogged pores, skin cell turnover, vitamin a and fine line and wrinkle support/reduction. These same qualities you can find in herbs and botanicals. Naturally. Green tea, Elderberry and lavender, for example, reap these same benefits. A natural rose oil has an abundance of vitamin c, in comparison to a vitamin c serum with synthetic ingredients. Who's to say which is better?

Herbal Skincare Benefits
Herbal skincare, which involves using natural plant-based ingredients in skincare products, offers several potential benefits. Here are some of the advantages of incorporating herbal skincare into your beauty and skincare routine:
Natural and Non-Toxic Ingredients: Herbal skincare products are formulated with natural ingredients, such as herbs, plant extracts, and essential oils. This reduces the risk of exposure to synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, and harsh preservatives that can be found in many conventional skincare products.
Gentle on the Skin: Herbal skincare products are generally gentle on the skin, making them suitable for people with sensitive or allergy-prone skin. The absence of harsh chemicals and potential irritants can reduce the risk of skin reactions and allergic responses. Herbal ingredients often contain vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that nourish and hydrate the skin.
Antioxidant Protection: Many herbs and botanicals are rich in antioxidants, which help protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
+ Balanced Skin: Herbal skincare products can help balance the skin's oil production, making them suitable for both oily and dry skin types. They can also address issues like acne.
Herbbotany was created from a dream, truly. As a studying Herbalist and on-going natural product enthusiasts, we have been deep in the archives of herbal skincare for a while now due to personal skin ailments. Though it began as a way to provide relief to our skin, it turned into the beginning of finding out what has been naturally and beautifully provided for our overall skin health. Almost everything that has been created synthetically can be found naturally and I aim to provide the information needed for this in skin food.
When it comes to herbs and botany, there are too many benefits to count. The thought and realization of knowing that there are so many resources available to us to lift us, heal us, relax us, relieve us, etc. is a true marvel and work of God.
This is us sharing what we have studied and learned, so you can marvel too.
