We LOVE Cedar + Stone Skin Care
Posted on May 04 2016
110% All natural skin care products!
If it was possible to be 110% of something, Cedar + Stone Skin Care would be 110% all natural. Their ingredients, manufacturing and business ethos is focused around being all natural. Cedar + Stone Skin Care use herbs, plants, minerals and crystals that are sourced and derived from some of the most diverse environments, from dense rain forests to merciless deserts. With a firm ethos on minimising harsh chemicals into the environment, Cedar + Stone pride themselves on using completely no chemicals, artificial fragrances, additives or preservatives.
We are thrilled to be able to stock Cedar + Stone natural skin care products on our website, and wanted to find out a bit more about the brains behind the business, so we grabbed 10 minutes with owners and sisters Anna and Kate...
What inspired you to create Cedar + Stone?We wanted to bring a skincare brand to the market that was completely natural. We didn't like walking into an organic store or shop and seeing items on the shelf claiming to be natural, when really they weren't. That’s where Cedar and Stone Skin Care was born! I (Anna) have an extensive background in retail, working for one of the biggest online retailers in Australia I had a real drive to start my own gig. Kate, my sister, who has studied natural therapies for some time, had been making her own product for her family and during a conversation one day we just decided to join forces!
How long has Cedar + Stone Skin Care been running?
1 year and 5 months to be exact!
How do you source new ingredients and come up with new product combinations?
We try and source a lot of our ingredients from native Australian herbs, flower essences, essential oils etc. Depending on what the ingredient is and which climate it thrives in we source from all over the world and are always studying to find new and exciting ingredients to play with. The concept generally comes from playing around and seeing how the particular ingredient works alongside others. Time of year also plays a role in creating new products, summer is all about refreshing sprays and soothing serums where winter we focus mainly on hydration.
What is it about your company Cedar + Stone that is most important to you?
Making people aware how natural our products are. There is absolutely NO bad stuff in it. Not one thing. We want people to completely lose their minds over how amazing natural products can be and how healing they are. The whole ‘experience’ from the packaging to the feeling is very important to us.
Who inspires you in the natural skin care industry and in business?
Aesop & owner Dennis Phapitis, Virgin & owner Richard Branson. Hands down, two unbelievably great, eclectic, inspirational people & brands. There is plenty more although they come to mind first.
Who are Cedar + Stone products good for?
All ages really, anyone and everyone can benefit from our products. However our packaging definitely translates to a younger crowd.
