Skin-Loving Flowers

Apr 12, 2019 | | Mineral Fusion

April is a month of stepping into spring. Breathtaking flowers will start to bloom and sweet aromatic scents will fill the crisp, clean air. It’s the most beautiful time of year to stop and smell the roses.

Our mission of Making Beauty Healthy® starts with our dedication to and passion for nature. Did you know we infuse floral botanical extracts and oils in our cosmetics and skin care to help treat your skin?

Flowers can take two ingredient forms: extracts and essential oils. While essential oils are more concentrated, both have incredible skin healing and nourishing properties. Using floral extracts in your beauty routine can help to soothe, nourish, and re-hydrate your skin.

Each of our floral extracts have their own unique therapeutic benefits for healing and beautifying your skin. Read on to find your flower fix!
