Is your luxury skincare product really luxurious?
When you think of the word luxury, what comes to mind? Perhaps it is quality, perhaps it is prestige brands or perhaps it is price point. But when it comes to luxury skincare, you may be surprised to learn that many so called “luxury” brands often use very inexpensive ingredients that you would find in products that are not considered luxurious. For example, mineral oil is an ingredient often found in skincare products who use the word “luxury” in their marketing, but mineral oil is actually a very common ingredient used as a substitute and filler for something better.
At Flower and Spice we think differently about luxury and wanted our brand to reflect this. For us it goes beyond simply marketing our products as luxury, we wanted every detail of what we do to reflect the quality and passion that goes into our formulas. Bringing together performance and pleasure, every one of our ingredients is chosen carefully to reflect this ethos. We wanted to share this ethos with you and explain what luxury means to us.
What luxury means to us?
Quality - Our formulas have been lovingly created by Karmen, the founder, after years of research and discovering a passion for natural ingredients. To bring you the best products on the market, we partnered with leading a Swiss laboratory to make our formulations, the lab has been awarded the “Certified Sustainable economics standard” for its ethical, ecological and economic excellence. More than 20 years long partnerships with farmers around the world provide the best ingredient and ensure that the quality is there. There are no compromises; we only buy the best we can get.
Sustainability - One of the hot topics of the moment is sustainability. But what does it mean? We think sustainability it about responsibility at every stage. Through our farmer partnerships, who develop or natural, organic and fair-trade ingredients or other details such as using recyclable packaging. As the industry evolves and develops, we are always looking to evaluate and improve our practices.
Passion - Passion for us is one of the key elements of luxury. We are a growing, independent, founder led company with a real passion for producing skincare products both you and your skin will love. We love speaking to you directly about your experience with our products as well as your skin concerns and how we can help. Passion may not be an ingredient we can add to our ingredients list, but we feel it is essential to what we do.
For us nature is ultimate definition of luxury. Trust your instincts. Bring nature back into your daily life.

I’m not a morning person. I’ve (semi)tried being one and failed miserably. Maybe I just didn’t stick with it long enough and maybe I’ll try again in a while, but right now, that’s a fact: not a morning person. I like my days to start slow.
