5 Botanical Ingredients with Skin Benefits

  • 2 min read


When you live in New England, there are years when it seems like winter lasts forever. It's officially Spring, but our flower beds have yet to bloom. Soon enough, we'll have bright petals and sweet scents, but until then, we'll have to indulge our passion for plants in other ways. This April, we're celebrating National Garden Month by highlighting our botanical ingredients.

Commonly, flowers appear in two ingredient forms: an extract or an essential oil. The skin care benefits are similar in both versions, but the oils are more concentrated. If you scroll through our Ingredient Glossary, you'll find a bouquet of botanicals from Aloe to Zingiber Officinale Root (also know as Ginger Root). Choosing our favorite is near impossible, so we decided to focus on flowers. Read on to learn about skin benefits for our favorite florals.
