Supporting Small Farms
Starflower believes that small is beautiful.
This is why we love to support small, biodynamic farms and gardens. A biodynamic (BD) farm produces more nutrient dense herbs, which is one ‘Essential Difference’ that sets Starflower apart from other organic skincare companies. Featured this month are Starflower products made with biodynamic herbs grown and supplied fresh from one of our biodynamic partner’s. Starflower Crèmes and Salves are made from the BD grown, freshly infused herbs such as calendula, elder, hollyhock, self heal, chickweed, rose and lavender. We are thankful for our increasing BD family of suppliers.
Starflower's Facial Crèmes are formulated for balancing and moisturizing every unique skin type. They have sun-protection properties and organic essential oils to stimulate the skin’s natural functions. Antioxidants and vitamin E slow free radical-induced deterioration of the skin’s natural fatty acids. Our synergistic formulas encourage harmony and cell regeneration deep within the skin’s layers to aid in anti-aging and elasticity. Rich emollient oils and waxes provide extra protection for the surface layer of the skin. Starflower's Facial Crèmes contain a variety of herbs that are grown biodynamically or wildcrafted from Wisconsin forests.
Herba Salve is an all-around healing salve for skin conditions such as red, irritated and inflamed skin, rashes, minor burns, scars, eczema, insect bites, chapped lips and more. Apply to your legs after shaving or waxing to quickly soothe and relieve any red irritation. Herba Salve provides soothing, healing relief to red, irritated, inflamed skin with no greasy feel or clogging of the pores. In fact, because of the premium vitality of the herbs and oils used, this product is super nourishing to the skin and provides great anti-wrinkle and healing protection. Follow with our talc-free Herbal Body Powder for a dry, smooth finish.
Day Replenish is an emollient, barrier protection to face, lips and neck for prevention of fine lines. Excellent for extremely dry skin and/or during dry, cold winter months. Also very beneficial to inflamed acne, eczema, psoriasis. Super healing balm from biodynamically grown and wildcrafted herbs.
These organically and biodynamically ingredients that come from our small farm suppliers are holistic by nature, and their minimal processing allows their substance integrity (literally, "the heart of the matter") to remain intact and vital. These substances better nourish and absorb into the skin than cosmetic-grade ingredients because their molecular structure has not been disturbed and hardened through high-temperature refining, bleaching, decolorization, standardization, and other processes.
When you purchase and use Starflower Essentials products, you can feel good knowing that you have lent a hand in the support of small farms!
