our philosophy

The SKINgredient Bar provides an integrated holistic skin health & wellness approach with quality herbal products, services, and workshops for your unique skin constitution and concerns.

Everyone deserves clean and authentic care for their most protective and mirroring organ, the integumentary system (aka skin). That's why we created an all-embracing skin care product & service bar that supports the microbiome of all skin types and conditions! Our goal is to help you channel balance & harmony in your skin from the inside out. Balance, restore, and support is our formula to improving overall complexion, reducing inflammation and irritation, and optimizing skin longevity.

 

Not only do we formulate with real & tender ingredients that nourish and restore the skin. We also hold value in using subtle aromatic blends in our formulations to promote emotional well-being without overpowering the senses.

... eastern-infused esthetics

Did you know that imbalances in the body are usually first seen in the skin, specifically the face, before many other diagnostic tests can detect them? Our skin is a direct reflection of our inner state of well-being. As within, so without. Our approach to our skin care services are highly inspired by eastern practices such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. We believe the face reading wisdom taught differently but cohesively by both these eastern backgrounds provides the esthetician with better analyzing skills to formulate their own unique protocol. We focus on providing support for the integumentary system from a holistic perspective and modern twist to compliment.

 

Our skin care method goes beyond the physical products and treatment. We help bridge the gap in skin care by integrating the well-being of mind and body with skin health. Our emotional and spiritual bodies are the foundation of our overall well-being and work in tandem with the physical. When one or more of these are out of balance we often also see imbalance in the skin. This includes fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, inflammation, or dry/oily in excess. Our facial treatments and products work synergistically to promote a calm, balanced, and harmonized complexion for any age and any skin type. We believe beauty grows with age, with spiritual ascension. That said, we do not promote anti-aging as it discredits the true beauty of the cycle of life itself and harms our mental & emotional well-being. Instead, we work to promote & support slow beauty rituals that connect us to our bodies that plant seeds of appreciation and self-love, no matter what stage of life we are in or how our skin looks.

A word on beauty...

 

You are only as beautiful as you let yourself believe you are! The body is listening to everything your mind speaks so be sure to always whisper tender and kind words to yourself.

The Three Treasures...

In chinese medicine there are the 3 Treasures. Jing, Qi, & Shen. Our essence is known as Jing. This is the beauty in which we project outward from our inner world. Lack of Jing flow hinders growth spiritually & physically as well as cell regeneration. Qi, our Life Force, is quite important to beauty and well-being as it moves energy. When we are stressed Qi becomes stagnant and constricts blood flow, this wreaks havoc on our body's systems and as it is meant to flow freely. Lack of proper Qi flow speeds up the process of aging rather than supports its natural delicate pace. Shen is our higher consciousness, our spirit, our emotions, and our light. When the light is bright we glimmer and shine. When the 3 Treasures feel nurtured and balanced we glow from the inside out. This is real beauty without the marketing, the products, and the extrinsic actions. Just intuition and self-nourishment.

Jessica has been a licensed Esthetician for 6 years. Through her education and experience in the field as well as with her own struggles with acne and dermatitis, she felt there was a huge hole in the skin care industry for those that suffer from chronic skin inflammation, irritation, and other skin conditions from products to services. She has seen many tender skin care concerns in the modern esthetics field being met with abrasive, harsh, or invasive measures that more often than not, are not necessary. She saw the lack of real genuine and gentle handcrafted skin care on the market and in the treatment room for those with problematic skin conditions. Now she is able to share and integrate her wisdom and passion for aromatic & healing herbs, skin health, well-being, & longevity in her facials and product line for all skin types and conditons.

 

Although Jessica is licensed in traditional esthetics, she considers herself to be a holistic skin care specialist. She integrates various other trainings in subtle but powerful ways such as Yoga, Reiki, Pranayama (breathwork), Herbalism, Facial Cupping, & Gua Sha to help support and balance the skin from the inside out. She loves to combine both esthetic principles she has learned in the products and services she offers her clients!

owner, licensed esthetician and holistic skin care specialist

More recently she has been continuing her education with Holistic Dermal Professionals to integrate eastern methods such as TCM for estheticians. Soon she will have an official certification as a Holistic Skin Care Specialist. She is also enrolled in an Organic Skin Care Formulation course with Formula Botanica. Jessica plans to continue pursuing Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic knowledge in relation to optimizing skin health and wellness as well as handcrafting specialty skin care for skin, soul, and senses.
