Holistic skincare is continuing to gain popularity with beauty product enthusiasts and consumers alike. So, what exactly makes a beauty product holistic or not? Holistic skincare products are characterized as having nearly 100% all natural ingredients and are usually comprised of ingredients such as plant extracts, antioxidants, essential oils, and herbs. Sounds pretty down to earth and old world, right?
It’s pretty hard to imagine holistic skincare being thought of as compatible with high tech, which certainly evokes thoughts of products that are not natural, or derived from plants and herbs. High tech certainly comes across as much more industrial! How on earth can the two possibly be merged? Read on to find out about the high tech, holistic skincare products that are what dreams are made of!
