We are awakening to the truth about where our food comes from, and by extension, where our skincare comes from. Like the food we eat, the most beneficial skincare is made with raw, organic, farm sourced, handcrafted ingredients.
The Laurel line is a ritualistic range of flower and herb-based skincare, formulated with impeccably sourced, highly vibrant whole plants picked at their peak for unmatched transparency, purity, and results. Firmly rooted in the principles and practices of Slow Beauty, Laurel’s first and most critical relationship is with the land. Her exclusive partnerships with local artisan farmers ensure the highest quality and most stringent transparency. Their mutual commitment to only 100% organic, raw, unrefined plant materials guarantees unparalleled freshness and efficacy. Laurel Skin believes beauty should be a loving self care practice that begins and ends with mindfulness.
Slow Beauty, Mastered
Laurel Skin is committed to your health, well-being and, as a result, your beauty. Our commitment begins with the quality of the soil that nourishes and optimizes the ingredients we select. This is the foundation of Slow Beauty. We then follow each ingredient from seed to harvest. Through the season it takes to grow our plants, to the months our handmade blends sit steeping, to the hours we spend bottling each batch, we practice Slow Beauty with patience and intention. Our greatest reward is knowing you feel this when you use our products.
Our commitment to your total well-being is evidenced by what is in each bottle, and what isn’t. In addition to being free of water, alcohol and fillers, Laurel Skin rejects any of the harmful ingredients often found in skincare – carcinogens, hormone disruptors, synthetic fragrances, lab-derived and bio-identical ingredients, GMOs, and even conventionally grown plants. It is our belief that these ingredients are doing long-term damage to your skin on a cellular level.
It is a common misconception that synthetic, lab-created ingredients are necessary to achieve positive results in skin care. This is not true. These inferior ingredients are cheaper than real plants and contain only a fraction (if that!) of the nutrient content and vibrancy. By contrast, our 100% organic, raw, unrefined whole plant ingredients contain hundreds of antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients. In short, there is simply no man-made ingredient that can compare to the delicate, intricate, and powerful science of nature.
Laurel Skin was created with spas and estheticians in mind. Offering the complexity to support customized, results-driven facials, yet intuitive enough for home use, the line invites a Slow Beauty, at home or at the spa. We believe that our mindful beauty rituals can take years off the mind, body, and spirit, not only the skin.
