Herbal Insights Deep Dive: Botanicals Uses, and Herbal Pairings

Herbal skin and beauty products have taken the beauty industry by storm. Many companies have stopped using artificial scents and colors using essential oils, herbal powders instead to provide products with integrity and benefits. Herbs and spices like rose, lavender, and turmeric not only provide incredible aromatics and beautiful colors, but they can also promote healthy skin—providing extra vitamins, antioxidants, and healing effects. These are just some of the botanicals that are being used to freshen up the ingredient list on skin and beauty products. We found some exciting herbal alternatives to the beauty products used daily by most people, made by companies with clean-label commitments.
