Nature is our best resource when it comes to truly nourishing our skin and treating skin conditions and inflammation. Conditions such as acne are often treated with products loaded with toxic nasties and chemicals which does more harm than good and rarely provides the skin with the nourishment it needs to heal by stripping the skin instead. Knowing the combinations of bioactive botanical ingredients to boost our skincare from the outside in is the secret behind Botani's skincare range, founded by Naturopath and herbalist Barbara Filokostas...
"I knew the answer to beautiful skin lay in Hippocrates’ concept of ‘the healing power of nature’; ingredients that worked in sync with the skin – allowing it to breathe instead of suffocating it with petroleum derivatives." - Barbara Filokostas, Botani Founder
