Our Technique is Gentle

Karen’s Botanicals formulates luxurious and natural skin and body care. Our products are plant based nutrition and therapy for your face and body. Refusing to use synthetic fragrances, petroleum based ingredients, harsh chemicals, or skin irritants, our philosophy emphasizes a gentle approach as the better method for beautiful and healthy skin.

Approximately 90% of our ingredients are certified organic, many are 97% organic. Our goal is to strive daily toward increasing this percentage. Karen’s is focused on a greater commitment to the use and development of organic production. We fulfill this goal as we find new sources which can exchange clean living organically grown substances for the harsh commercial raw materials, which are so often the stuff of cosmetic companies.

Our organic skin care line is handcrafted with attention to detail and quality. Working in small batches, we refuse to stockpile raw ingredients in a warehouse for months past their prime effectiveness. This commitment to starting with fresh raw materials is our standard, and it guarantees each product is a fresh product when mailed to you. Quality products begin with fresh raw materials.

Our Exquisite and effective formulas are fairly priced. We believe that everyone should be able to afford quality, affordable skincare products, which work and are a joy to use.

Karen’s Botanicals has created a whole range of natural personal care products such as facial creams, body lotions, cleansers and toners, aromatherapy mists, massage and body oils, healing salves and balms, natural cough syrup, organic hot sauce, Ester C Rejuvenating Facial Serum and much more.

New Skin

New skin can be found, and it is layered just under the skin you now see and feel. Nothing drastic here, but a gentle, natural kind of magic. Most of us can encourage new skin development if you regularly exfoliate the skin.

What is Exfoliation and can everyone exfoliate?

If your general skin health is good, and you suffer from no extreme skin conditions, you might be a candidate for reclaiming a youthful glow.

Exfoliating is the process of removing the very thinnest, top layer of what is already dead, dry skin. Sounds extreme, but having a regular, yet occasional, schedule of gentle dead skin removal is a good thing. This age old, world-wide beauty secret is something most men do to the lower half of their face every morning as they shave. Some use the word, “scrub,” to describe this; however, the word should not be taken literally. A gentle approach is always the best method. A part of your beauty arsenal, this cleansing ritual encourages the production of new dewy skin, as you remove the older layer and revel the hidden glow of fresh, lively skin. Instant youth! While this it might sound a bit harsh, it is actually healthy for skin, if your’s methods and products are gentle.

However, if you suffer from any condition, such as Rosacea, a serious skin disorder, exfoliation should not be attempted causally, and for some… not at all! Never make extreme changes during a flare-up. It is wise to first seek the advice of a medical care giver. Caution should be taken for those suffering from conditions of the skin such as Rosacea. While this practice can be a component of optimum skin health, it is not advisable for Rosacea patients without first consulting a medical doctor. Finding one who has experience with your condition is preferable, and ask for a referral is not. If you have any question about a possible skin disorder, you shouldn’t attempt any solution, without first researching the consequences of each beauty regiment. If medically cleared to proceed, I would also suggest you utilize the training of a professional esthetician. Always ask if this technician has a clear understanding in your underlining problem. A good professional can teach good practices.

When using a dry scrub or cleansing grain, only remove the amount needed for one application. Make sure you keep the remaining jar contents dry for future applications. Once exposed to moisture, spoilage is likely, especially if using an organic. Follow the directions, and avoid using multiple processes if this is the first time you attempt this procedure. Meaning don’t have a mask and a scrub on the same day and give yourself a break by waiting to see if you’ll have a poor reaction to the products you use.
