The skincare industry is going through momentous changes. The internet has paved a path for companies like Rosemira–a one-woman operation working out of a converted garage, and yet, with her austerity comes creativity based on knowledge and inspiration–the clear proof evident in the quality results and popularity.
Seeing the change, the corporate world is trying to adapt–old companies in new clothing, large non-organic skincare companies pretending to be small and organic are flooding the ever-growing holistic skincare market, trying to cash in but doing so haphazardly at best. Their formulas are sub-par, the ingredient quality is poor and expensive ingredients, if any, are found in low concentration.
There’s also a slew of skincare entrepreneurs entering the market who aren’t formulators. They purchase a base formula available from a myriad of contract manufacturers, then sell it under their name, as if it’s a new product. They make up a cute story about how they were sick and couldn’t find a good product, so they came up with their own, but that is highly suspect. There’s nothing innovative or unusually effective in these formulas. These companies make the bulk of new companies in today’s market.
The good news is that there are good companies that have joined the ranks of organic formulators using the best ingredients in proper measurement to create exquisite products. They’re still a small percentage of the market but their presence, like Rosemira, is growing and securing their rightful duty to provide the best formulas. Their prices are sometimes higher, but considering the quality and results, well worth the few extra bucks.
Rosemira enjoys educating our clients as to the validity of the products they choose to purchase. Do you want to purchase a low-grade Rose Hydrosol Toner with no essential oils or any other ingredients added, or would you rather spend a little more on Rosemira Roses in Bloom Hydrating Toner–the combination of Red Rose Hydrosol, rare White Rose Hydrosol, Neroli Hydrosol and choice essential oils?
My take is that the experience women have when using hi-end products, the energy involved in creating them, the quality of workmanship and ingredients used, the originality of the formulas, and the resulting healing benefits are well worth the price.
As you can see, I’m passionate about this. I don’t like people encroaching on my field of expertise if they’re not experts like myself or better than me. Doing so makes my life as a small manufacturer ever so difficult as I keep my production honest with the high standards required in this competitive field.
On a positive note: 2017 was the best year yet for Rosemira, and 2018 will rock.
May your year be filled with all health, purpose and skincare goodies.
With utmost love and gratitude,
