Now more than ever, as we live in toxic times, it’s important to “naturalize” your beauty routine as much as possible. I recently discovered a skin care company that does exactly that but in a very unique way…

Introducing Self-Made Cosmetics, an all-natural, hand-made skin care company that focuses on making products to make women feel more confident in themselves. Being self-made is more than just hand-making the product ourselves but making sure that as people and as a company, they are staying true to themselves and making something of what they have within them. Says Founder Kristen Zaldana, “Through our face & body care, we offer products that contain crystals for energy healing benefits, as well as products with ingredients that nourish for maximum skincare benefits.”

Why Crystal Infusion? 

Crystals have been of aide of healing dating back to our ancestors nearly 6,000 years ago! At Self-Made Cosmetics, they just love to incorporate crystals into many of their products to provide the utmost healing for their customers. By carefully choosing which crystal gem to charge with its corresponding ingredient, they strive to offer products that will bring positive energy to enhance your everyday life! 

Why Natural Ingredients? 

Self-Made Cosmetics prides itself on what goes into their products. Ensuring that there are NO harsh chemicals that will damage your skin over time is extremely important to them. They use pure and plant-based ingredients to make sure you are not exposed to anything that could potentially harm you. Using natural ingredients and naturally-derived preservatives is a sure way to ensure a strong foundation for healthy skin.

No Parabens

No Sulfates

Cruelty Free

Vegetarian

There are specifically two products that I am really excited about that I want to share with you today. Let’s take a look…
