Crystal-Infused Beauty Products for Your Skin and Soul
For thousands of years, people have been drawn to crystals for their metaphysical qualities. From ancient Egypt to Greece to China, crystals have been incorporated into culture symbolically, spiritually and energetically. Each crystal is said to have a unique healing or protective purpose. Magical powers or not, we can all agree that crystals sure are pretty to look at!
Naturally, crystals make a great ingredient in skincare and makeup for both their physical qualities as well as that special energy they bring. Here are some of our favorite crystal-infused products:
Aeos is a cruelty-free British brand that sources their sustainable ingredients from organic or advanced biodynamic farming. The brand’s spagyric tinctures are made from liquid gems and crystals prepared using ancient alchemical techniques over a 12-month period. The tinctures supercharge the skincare products to help deliver therapeutic effects for the body, mind and soul. Pink formulations are enhanced with spagyric crystal essences of fire opal, rose quartz, and rubellite that help to support the heart chakra and assist you in achieving the rosy complexion that replenishes these qualities within yourself.
The Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette is made with rose quartz powder to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and redness while illuminating the skin with light-reflective crystals. Aether beauty brings sustainability into every decision and a portion of the sales goes to environmental charities. Formulas are vegan and made in accordance with the European Union’s ban list using natural ingredients, non-toxic synthetical ingredients and plants for cleaner products. (The European Union bans over 1300 chemicals while the USA only bans 11 chemicals.)
Aquarian Soul’s ingredients are 100% plant-based, organic, and sustainably wildcrafted with no artificial ingredients including fragrances. Crystals are combined with plant medicine for a unique healing experience that leaves skin feeling the effects for days. This highlighting balm is an all-natural highlighter that will make your cheekbones pop! The moisturizing blend is infused with Moonstone, a mysterious stone that is said to help with balancing emotions, and teaches us to go with the ebbs and flow of life.
After having a terrible reaction to an “organic” lip balm she tried, Founder Christy Marderosian researched the ingredients and was frustrated to learn that they included a drying agent. Exhausted at the idea of not knowing what was actually in the products she was using, she made her first handcrafted batch of lip balm. It was the trend of being unsatisfied with the ingredients in other products that led to Belle & Beast Organics. Pretty AF Rose Quartz Toner is ultra hydrating vegan, organic, and cruelty-free. It features Brazilian Rose Quartz crystals to open the Heart Chakra to unconditional love and positive energy.
CrownWorks is based in Santa Monica, California and was founded by stylist Andi Scarbrough. The salon offers a series of customized beauty rituals that heal and balance the mind and body. This beautiful comb is made from Rose Quartz, the stone of love. It has the ability to clear negativity (anger, resentment, jealousy, fear) and instill feelings of self-worth, self-confidence, self-love and inner calm. CrownWorks has a variety of combs made from amethyst, black obsidian, clear quartz, and more.
Crystal Bar Soap is a vegan and cruelty-free soap company that uniquely embeds healing crystals within every bar. Each soap in the Essential Chakra Kit is unique and inspired by one of the seven chakras. The crystal bars were created to enhance the energy and experience of the stones within. For instance, the Crown Chakra soap is scented with rosewood and coconut with pink Himalayan salt. It is infused with clear quartz, the master healer stone, to amplify energy and thought.
