SKINIMALISM: THE SUZI'S SKINCARE PHILOSOPHY
The focus of skinimalism is to simplify your skincare routine while accepting your skin's natural texture and using multpurpose products to promote healthy, glowing skin.
Meet Skinimalism: Our Skincare Philosophy
At Suzi's Lavender, we believe in using natural and organic ingredients that are beneficial for both the skin and the environment. Our skincare products are made with love and care, and we only use ingredients that we would personally use on our own skin. We believe in the power of nature, and that's why our skincare products are made with natural and organic ingredients. We also believe in the power of multitasking skincare products, which is why we offer a variety of skincare products that can be used for multiple purposes.
Recently a word popped up in our vernacular that perfectly articulates the “Suzi’s approach” to skincare: skinmalism. The focus of skinimalism is to simplify your skincare routine while accepting your skin's natural texture and using multpurpose products to promote healthy, glowing skin. Skinimalism also brings a more sustainable approach to skincare. It encourages us to only purchase products vital to the overall health and beauty of our skin that are made from natural and organic ingredients, and even reduce our carbon footprint by using fewer products — it’s all about a “less is more” approach to skincare.
We like to joke that we are "the original skinimalists". Suzi grew up learning from her mother how to wild harvest plants for making skincare products. Many years later, Suzi’s still believes it’s all about achieving clean, healthy glowing skin, but with a minimal number of products. Our skincare line offers hydrating, bioactive and natural ingredients to nourish, support and cleanse the skin. We also believe in transparency and education when it comes to skincare. When somebody purchases a Suzi's product, they are trusting us to take care of them and their skin. We want our customers to feel confident and informed about the products they are using. We endeavor to source ingredients locally and use recycled packaging materials as much as possible.
A concern we have is the environmental impact from cosmetic packaging. It alone is monstrous. Most cosmetic products are made overseas, creating a large carbon footprint due to the additional transportation needed to get the products to market in the United States. Most items are packaged in single-use plastic that is wrapped in an additional plastic container, none of which are truly recyclable.
Instead they end up in our landfills and water ways. Plastics and micro plastics are now found in rivers and oceans and most recently in freshly fallen Arctic snow. This highway of plastic particles has even led to the destruction of coral reefs.
