Skin and Bones Skin Care Review

Posted by in Body Oil, Face Wash, Green Beauty, Reviews | 1 comment








As soon as I saw this wonderful skincare line inside all I as thinking was .. the branding and packaging is genius.. 


As soon as I received their beautiful products and experienced the full spectrum of Skin and Bones I immediately realized what set them apart from other natural skincare lines


Beyond the branding, Beyond the packaging, their lies a formula for the must fragrant and soothing smell of frankincense and sandalwood.


These essential oils blend together perfectly and offer an aroma that is neutral, not too deep, not too fruit forward, but just right.. 


If you’re looking for unisex skincare products that possess consistency in their quality,  you will LOVE the Skin & Bones brand








Founded in 2009, Skin & Bones designs and manufactures simple luxurious artisan products that are glamorous and sophisticated, yet have an edge and youthfulness. In 2010 Skin & Bones launched its signature product, a luxurious face+body+hair oil, that is unisex, organic and multi-use. S+B expects to launch 2 to 3 new products a year in multi-product categories, including beauty care, jewelry, handbags, housewares, accessories, etc.

We love design and think that’s what makes life spiffy.  Our goal is to make artisan products with attention to detail, experience and purpose.  As with most great companies we are striving to be sweet to mother earth but with style, edge, and fun.  Lot’s of fun.  We focus on multi-use, safe, unisex products because we know that one size does not fit all but a certain badassness fits our tribe.


The journey begins in 1999 when Eric & Heidi find one another in an predestined job interview… for the details on this sub plot invite us to dinner and we will explain…Fast forward to 2005, Eric’s father passes away from cancer and in search of healing Eric and Heidi befriend Ray & Ruby – Native American medicine people.


Somewhat reluctant to believe in their power, Heidi began experimenting, mixing, learning and embracing essential oils. She tested dozens of oils and blends, looking for the perfect moisturizer. First hand she experienced tremendous results with her mixtures. Slowly she began to abandon all the “miracle” synthetic products corporate America had convinced her to believe in and after countless recipes and numerous blends she found the perfect formula and scent to die for.


The luxurious mixture Heidi created was divine, so heavenly Eric deserted his longtime face lotion for her organic non-toxic elixir. Then friends and strangers began asking questions… why do you guys smell so great, why are you glowing, what is that scent?


Being entrepreneurs, Heidi & Eric looked at one another and thought, why not start a business. Heidi started to focus on the design and Eric the business aspects. It took months to find the perfect bottle and get everything in place. Heidi thought, why be like every organic “granola” looking product on the market… why do we need eighteen different products… it has to be good for you and eco-friendly… can’t compromise design or quality. Everything was coming together, except what to call this new product.

The summer of 2009, a serendipitous weekend at a concert sealed destiny. While an acoustic set played of a song titled Skin & Bones, lighting struck. That’s it, it’s all about our skin and bones. Why not design and create products that touch people on every level of their skin and bones. The company and brand Skin & Bones was officially born.


And the journey continues…
