Elemental Herbology was founded in 2008, with the purpose to help your skin achieve a state of optimum health and vitality. Using therapeutic levels of plant compounds, herbal extracts, essential fatty acids, botanical oils, vitamins, minerals, pure essential oils and anti-oxidants, they are proud to create natural skincare and body care that brings advanced nutrition to your skin.
Elemental Herbology base everything they do around the Five Element Theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine; everything in life needs to work in harmony in order to achieve perfect equilibrium. The products relate to each element, wood, fire, earth, metal and water and they believe that a balance of all the elements is needed depending on your skin type, environmental factors, lifestyle and the seasons.
The skin is the largest organ and reflects any imbalance internally as well as external factors such as stress, the weather and pollution. They believe that working on the inside-out as well as the outside-in are both essential for a happy and healthy life. Exercise and nutrition are just as important as a good skincare regime to improve your overall wellbeing.
Made in England, they support the responsible harvesting and production of all raw materials from the world’s most reputable suppliers, working with projects that regenerate the environment and local communities such as Phytotrade Africa. They are proud of everything that they put into the products, and proud of what they leave out. The products are 100% free from synthetic fragrance, artificial colour, sulphates, paraben preservatives and mineral oils to ensure your skin is cared for from the inside out.
Everyone has different characteristics in their skin and it is important to use the right ingredients and products that will support your needs and lifestyle.
