I’ve had so many incredible clean beauty products come across my desk recently that it’s a challenge to keep up! Intention Botanicals is a current favorite that meets my criteria for clean, eco-friendly beauty. Intention Botanicals crafts botanically based skincare using the finest ingredients, opting for organic or culinary grade ingredients whenever possible.
Replace and assess your skin care needs
As we transition into fall it’s a good idea to replace cosmetics that were purchased 6 months ago with new bath and body products. I try to choose products that are created with intention. Here is a list of some of the additives I try to avoid:
- Fragrance ( “fragrance” or “parfum” on the product label represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals and ingredients used to preserve skin care products)
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and/or Sodium Laureth Sulfate
- BHA & BHT
During the dry, cooler months when skin is prone to becoming dry, try Intention Botanicals Nourishing Oil. It’s a lightweight oil with nourishing rosehip, avocado, and argan oil. The bath bombs smell incredible and are gentle on the skin. Place in your tub and then inhale deeply as you breath in the essential oil and listen to the gentle fizz. When the bath ball is completely dissolved you will find a beautiful crystal. The Flower and Coconut Bath powder contains rose petals and smells like a garden. Both bath products are free of chemicals and contain calming ingredients like epsom salt, rose and neroli oils (in jojoba oil), rose petals, and clay.
Deep breathing + a bath = relaxation
Bathing for 7 to 10 minutes helps ease muscular aches and pains while soaking away daily stress. Intention Botanicals makes botanical based skin and body products infused with nothing but plant-based goodness. Each offering is hand crafted with pure oils, butters, clay, and essential oils to support a specific intention with the power of sent and a crystal counterpart.
Conventional bath bombs and body wash may clean well but can also employ surfactants like sodium laurel/laureth sulfate to wash away grime. These chemicals can wash away your own skin’s oils too, leaving you itchy and flaky. Intention Botanicals uses only nourishing organic coconut oil, soothing salts and a beautiful raw rose quartz crystal–a stone which supports intentions relating to compassion, self care and love. It’s finished with organic rose petals and softly, sensually scented with rose and neroli oils.
Face masks are made with coconut milk powder, colloidal oatmeal, kaolin clay, organic chia seed extract (wonderful for sensitive, mature, or dry skin). You see no synthetic preservatives, parabens, artificial fragrances and other synthetic additives in Intentional Botanicals.
