Laurel Skin was founded by herbalist and former sommelier Laurel Shaffer, and utilizes biodynamic and regenerative agriculture, works with small family farms and local purveyors, supports bee and animal populations and insists on fair compensation for all. The Slow Beauty Collection features four organic skin care products representing each Miraval destination.
Miraval's new Essence of Miraval Facial is a bespoke experience at all three Miraval destinations, utilizing the Slow Beauty Collection. The treatment takes guests on a sensory journey of each location while restoring skin health and vibrancy. Warm facial compresses, honey tapping and traditional herbal poultices sculpt and firm connective tissue, release muscle tension and unburden mind, body and spirit.
Standout products in the Slow Beauty Collection include:
The Petal Pecan Mask is a hydrating, brightening and moisturizing formula representative of Texas farmlands and the bounty of peaches and pecans in the region. It contains native plants like yaupon and pink primrose flower, as well as some raw honey directly from Miraval Austin’s own Cypress Creek farm. Each calendula flower and lemon balm leaf is hand harvested by Herban Austin Farm. This product features 17 Austin-grown ingredients.
The Honeysuckle Sage Elixir, inspired by the warm desert after a cool rain, is soothing, hydrating, protective and repairing for both pre- and post-sun exposure. Delicate honeysuckle blooms and citrus blossom were cultivated and picked daily for distillation and effleurage by Phibee Aromatics. Native shrubs and leaves like chaparral, globe mallow and sage were harvested and combined with ripe prickly pear from Arizona’s Cactus Ranch. This product features 13 Arizona-grown ingredients.
The Wolfberry Chia Serum can be used for protection and repair from UV oxidative damage. It contains soothing and moisturizing lipids from native plants that can be found in the diverse Arizona landscape. Locally cultivated chia seed, prickly pear and jojoba are all raw and artisan cold-pressed, and wolfberry, mesquite and desert willow infusions were mindfully harvested by Tucson herbalist Black Sage Botanicals, alongside Ash Ritter’s desert flower essences. This product features 11 Arizona-grown ingredients.
The Tulsi Rose Balm is nourishing, barrier strengthening and lymph flow supportive with potent antioxidants. It is a dedication to the Berkshires lush and abundant growing region with local plants such as rose, nettle and pine, with cultivated Northeast-farmed cranberries and Concord grapes. Yarrow, comfrey and tulsi are grown by local Sawmill Herb Farm and Foxtrot Farm, and the flowers-meet-forest aroma is distilled by Full Kettle Farm. This product features 18 Berkshire-grown ingredients.
