About Face Plant

Origins

Face Plant Skincare began in the kitchen of the creator and founder, Lesley Davis, in 2012. Lesley set out to create products that were truly natural and toxin free. Skincare is often full of synthetic chemicals and harmful ingredients to the body. If they looked promising ingredient-wise, they often were so highly perfumed that they triggered allergies. The chemical ingredients and synthetic fragrances were highly studied by the founder through the Environmental Working Group's "Skin Deep" Cosmetics Database and other resources. After more than a year of trial and error, Lesley finally had products worthy of testing on her friends and family members. People of all ages (from babies to 83 year-olds) and all imaginable skin tones tested and retested these products. Their individual skin concerns and their suggestions resulted in the gentle and effective Face Plant products you see today. Face Plant has transitioned into my hands and I am excited to move forward with the same great ingredients and products that Lesley has created, as well as new products that are in the making. I have a passion for natural products and thus I am studying Nutrition and Functional Medicine and will receive my Master's degree next Spring. A plant-based diet is good for your body's interior; plant nutrition for your skin is just as good for your exterior. Happy planting! - Jessica Hynes- owner

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guiding Principles

1. If you wouldn't dream of putting it in your body, don't

   put it on your skin.

Your skin is your body's largest and most exposed organ. It gets pummeled enough by UV rays, wind, sweat, and pollution. Don't take care of it by feeding it daily doses of chemicals. Healthy skin is beautiful skin, whether it has wrinkles or freckles or (non-suspicious) moles. Just as eating a balanced and nutrient-rich diet makes you feel better and look better, using plant-based Face Plant gives your skin the glow of good health.

Here's what Face Plant Skincare products don't contain:

  • phthalates  

  • sodium laurel/laureth sulfites

  • parabens    

  • GMOs  

  • synthetic fragrances  

  • chemical preservatives

  • no animal testing

 

2. Use only the best, Fair Trade, sustainably-grown  

    organic ingredients

If you care about eating organically-grown and ethically-produced food, the same should apply to the food you feed your skin. We use only high-quality, organically-grown ingredients (certified organic whenever possible), and we choose the most effective, nutrient-rich ingredients for treating various skin conditions and types. Our African butters and oils (shea, cocoa, argan) some from women-owned, Fair Trade cooperatives.

 

3. Don't over-complicate skincare

Try as we might, nothing truly reverses aging. But we can do a few simple things to improve the health of our skin, and we don't need a pantheon of products to do it. Currently the Face Plant line includes six products: an oil cleanser, a toner, a moisturizing oil, a moisturizing serum, a concentrated balm, and a coffee & sugar face and body scrub. You can use all of them twice a day if you wish, or you can use a different one or two each day depending on what your skin is telling you that needs that day. Experiment with them all and see what works best for you!
