The Holistic Skin was founded by a licensed esthetician specializing in natural, organic products and treatments. The skincare industry has become saturated with med-spas, injectables, and other invasive, harsh treatments and chemicals. The Holistic Skin strives to offer safe, natural products, while helping you to discover how to achieve your healthiest skin using the holistic principles of mind, body, and spirit wellness.
We at The Holistic Skin make it our mission to be inclusive to all, unisex and to use the most quality and environmentally-friendly ingredients and packaging available.

Frequently Asked Questions
- “Why don’t your soaps come in all the crazy colors and scents like my favorite bath store at the mall?” The Holistic Skin products do not contain any artificial dyes, perfumes or fragrances. We do not make or sell artisan soaps. Our soap bars are meant to be natural, organic and formulated to be beneficial to the skin without harsh ingredients.
- “Is it safe to have sodium hydroxide in your soaps?”Absolutely! Sodium hydroxide (also known as “lye”) is an ingredient in all soap. Sodium hydroxide makes bar soap, while potassium hydroxide makes liquid soap. This is the chemical that causes the reaction known as “soaponification” that magically turns oils and fats into soap. Lye-heavy soap is what’s known as a “bad batch” and cannot become soap because the lye-oil concentration was off. The reaction of soaponification resulting in a solid bar of soap means that there is not any un-reacted sodium hydroxide in the batch.
- “How often should I be exfoliating?” No more than two to three times per week. Over-exfoliation can leave your skin inflamed and your oil glands will be over-producing from your skin being stripped, thus leading to further skin issues.
- “What’s wrong with the stuff I get at the drug store that I’ve been using since high school?” Products sold at a drug store or other commercial retailers are limited to which and how much of an active ingredient it can contain. You are actually getting more “fillers” than active ingredients such as water, alcohol and fragrance. You will find dyes in there as well. Natural products are more active, which means they will do more for your skin, they are more concentrated and you will not have to use as much of it.
- “Why can’t I buy a giant jar of the product? Why just 4oz? I can get 12 oz of cream at the drug store.” As we stated in the above question, when you purchase a drug store brand, you are getting water, fillers, dyes, fragrances and toxic chemicals. Some of the worse ingredients in them are all of the preservatives that give it a basically unlimited shelf life. Imagine the shelf life of an organic piece of fruit compared to a fast food french fry. The fruit is going to turn brown and spoil while the fry will remain unchanged for months! Which one is better for you? The fruit! Our product sizes are small because each product is handmade in small batches with high quality ingredients and no artificial preservatives. The average shelf life of a natural product is 8-10 months. So make sure you use it…and come see us for more!
- What is sugaring? How do I know if I’m a good candidate? “Sugar”, “sugaring”, “sugar paste” is sugar , water and lemon juice boiled down to a thick, sticky honey-like consistency. Read more: https://theholisticskin.com/sugaring/
