The founder and creator of the holisitic skin care line, Laurel, worked as a sommelier and learned a great deal about how to tell if an ingredient is pure and of the highest possible quality during this work.
While working as a sommelier she realized her passion was working with plants and then went on to pursue an education in herbal medicine. During her time working as a sommelier and studying herbal medicine, she began creating her own skin care formulations that were made of organic, biodynamic, and sustainably sourced ingredients, and thus the beautiful Laurel Skin was born!
The practice of biodynamic farming is an incredibly unique practice. According to Laurel's website, it is a holistic approach to farming; it focuses on strengthening and sustaining the health of the earth and its eco systems. It is a fascinating concept, I highly reccomend reading more about it on Laurel's website.
Along with using using certified organic ingredients and practicing biodynamic farming, Laurel Skin also sources all of their ingredients within 100 miles of their Northern California based lab. Laurel Skin uses whole plants, picked at their peak to ensure the best quality - their ingredients are food grade, and 100% raw and unrefined. Their oils are cold pressed and are always pressed by farms or artisan pressers.
All of the intricate and thoughtful processes behind the Laurel skincare line are all a part of the brands commitment to the concept of SLOW BEAUTY.
Althought it would be faster (and most likely less expensive) to order their ingredients from an external source, Laurel chooses to have her creations made with not only organically and locally grown ingredients, but also, thoughtfully and carefully grown ingredients. They choose to grow their ingredients in the most sustainable way possible and work to make sure that their farming practices benefit the earth, the land, and the local eco systems that are a part of the land that is allowing them to grow their sacred ingredients.
After learning all of the amazing information disccussed above, we could not wait to get Laurel's products on our shelves to share with our clients. Hope to see you at our launch party and we are so excited to be offering Laurels unique and truly holistic products in our shop!
