HERBAL ESSENTIALS, NATURAL BEAUTY INSPIRED BY AND INFUSED WITH HIMALAYAN ESSENTIALS
May 2019 : Himalayan inspired skincare brand Herbal Essentials blends the wisdom of time-honored beauty rituals with modern day skincare science. Made from the purest spring water which begins its journey 26,000 feet above sea level, and infused with potent active botanicals, each product in the collection has been created to deliver healthy, radiant, more youthful skin.
Herbal Essentials believes in the power of “clean” formulations; powerful natural ingredients without harsh chemicals. Aly Rahimtoola, the brand’s founder, grew up in Pakistan, in a background where great emphasis was placed upon natural wellbeing and beauty practices. He realized that traditional South Asian beauty knowledge and rituals – with a focus on simplicity of ingredients without chemicals and preservatives – could hold great benefit to modern skincare. He set out on a mission to rediscover the best of those ingredients and practices, updating them with the latest skincare technology from top French formulators. The result is Herbal Essentials – a modern clean skincare collection comprised of ancient beauty secrets.
Herbal Essentials comprises of four skincare ranges; three benefit-driven ranges of Radiance, Hydration and Purifying, and one collection that has been designed to provide an overall boost to all skin types. The whole collection has been clinically tested, cruelty free, mostly gluten free, and suitable for vegans. Herbal Essentials’ central philosophy of clean formulations means a strict blacklist of chemical ingredients – so the collection has over 90% natural origin content, with no mineral oils, silicones, sulphates or parabens. In keeping with Herbal Essentials’ strong commitment to preserving the environment, all packaging is recyclable, with bottles composed of glass polymer rather than plastic.
