A new new-age movement has been growing in society. We see an increasing number of people interested in spirituality and self-care methods. It can take the form of personal development to find your life mission, tarot reading to develop your intuition or lithotherapy for energy healing with crystals.
It wasn’t long before the beauty industry saw benefits in incorporating some of these methods to its products. Indeed, the frontier between beauty and wellness is thiner than ever, and consumers are more inclined to buy beauty products that have a self-care or wellness attribute to them.
This explain the growing number of skincare brands using crystals as an ingredient or marketing element for their products.
Kuwait’s skincare brand Prismologie combines the science of colour with the healing property of stones. Each product is a blend of gemstone, fragrances and natural actives. For example, one of their cult products is Pink’O’Clock, a hand cream that combines Rose Quartz and Arctic Rose extracts.
Each product in the själ range is ‘charged’ with precious minerals including gold, silver, copper, platinum and germanium in both liquid and solid form. In addition to precious minerals, själ incorporates gemstones such as diamond, blue sapphire, ruby, amethyst, citrine, and tourmaline, which naturally vibrate at a higher frequency promoting increased cellular energy, microcirculation and clarity.
