skinnyskinny is devoted to supporting the beauty of our natural world, while creating something beautiful to contribute to the lives of others. While using certified organic botanicals and oils to create luxurious and unique products, skinnyskinny works to minimize all harm to our planet by being a sustainable and environmentally conscious company.

skinnyskinny packaging is made from recycled recyclable or biodegradable materials because it’s the only sensible way to package organic products

 


For each product, we extensively research all ingredients as well as any materials used for packaging. The packaging is not secondary, but plays a crucial part in the overall experience of our products. It is of the utmost importance that our packaging is eco-friendly and sustainable, and still presents each product with beauty and style.


  

All of our packaging is made from recycled, recyclable or biodegradable materials because it’s the only sensible way to package organic products. We’ve even gone a step further and only print with vegetable ink on biodegradable plant-base labels. Vegetable Ink is made with vegetable oils extracted from soybean and linseeds, making it the ecofriendly counterpart to tradition petroleum ink.

skinnyskinny Beginnings

 

 

 

More than a decade ago, Clara Williams, owner and founder of skinnyskinny, started experimenting with her own homemade skin care recipes while she was making a gift for her mom, who could no longer find her favorite soap back home in Tennessee.

 

Clara’s first soap experiments turned out so well (actually the recipe lives on in skinnyskinny’s current Lavender and Eucalyptus Organic Bar Soap) and the feedback from friends and family was so positive that Clara knew that she was onto something unique and incredibly different from soaps normally found in stores.

   


“I fell completely in love with the whole process of combining chemistry with craft; equal parts science and art. Soap-making opened up an entirely new sensory experience for me that has continued unabated all these years. I have created the best ‘job’ for myself, in that I get to make products that smell good, do good and most importantly, make people feel good.”


 

skinnyskinny’s entire range of products have been formulated by Clara, a certified aromatherapist and esthetician with many years of experience creating products for discerning customers. In her new endeavor to create superb performance-based cruelty-free products, the use of high-quality organic ingredients and adhering to eco-friendly practices was the only possible option.

Product Description

for dry/sensitive skin

 

Our organic skin serums are ultra-concentrated, luxurious treats for your skin. The d/s skin serum has been formulated to be lightweight, deeply nourishing and extraordinarily calming. Environmental factors like sun exposure, heavy winds, bitter cold, and hot summers wreak havoc on our skin, especially the more gentle skin on our face. Now you can protect yourself while also treating existing irritation and dryness with this green beauty wonder.

 


The organic Meadowfoam Seed oil in this formula helps to form an occlusive layer, which minimizes moisture loss. The other organic oils in this recipe, such as Argan, Baobab and Hemp Seed, are rich in Vitamins A, C, D, E and F. This means that this serum is loaded with Anti-oxidants and other nutrients that help to heal and protect skin, without ever feeling greasy.

 

This serum stimulates cell renewal and cell turnover, which helps to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, while extracts of chamomile, aloe and echinacea calm skin. The essential oils in this recipe have been chosen for their anti-inflammatory properties and help to bring the skin’s sebum (natural oils) into proper balance.


   

Ingredients

Oils: Meadowfoam Oil*, Argon Oil*, Shea Nut Oil*, Evening Primrose Oil*, Peach Kernel Oil*, Baobab Oil*, Jojoba*, Extra-Virgin Pumkin Seed Oil*, Babassu Oil*, Red Raspberry Seed Oil*, Hemp Seed Oil*, Apricot Kernel Oil*, Avocado Oil*, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil*, Sunflower Seed Oil*.

Product Description

 

Unsure as to which of the skinnyskinny toners will work on your skin type? Our Organic Rose & Red Clover Blossom Toner is perfect for all skin types. It helps to minimize redness. It helps to re-balance hormonal fluctuations. It is extraordinarily calming and mildly astringent. Skin is left feeling clean, refreshed and primed to face the world. Clear and calm skin now comes with a light rose scent!

 


Our Organic Toners are formulated to re-balance the skin’s neutral ph after the cleansing process. Often cleansers can leave skin out-of-balance and over-reactive, which can lead to further problems of too much oil production or excessive dryness.


 

For skin that is toned and balanced, never tight or dried out: After washing your face with The Cleanser, either mist the toner over your face, or spray it onto a cotton ball and gently sweep onto skin. Give the toner a minute to soak in and take effect before applying an Organic Skin Serum and other treatments as needed. Green beauty has never been easier, or more effective!

 

Ingredients:

Distilled Water, Rose Hydrosol*, Witch Hazel (wild-crafted, alcohol-free), Rose Extract*, Red Clover Blossom Extract*, Apple Cider Vinegar*, Rose essential oil*, baking soda.
