Red Flower

October 21, 2010

Red Flower launched nationally in 1999 at Barneys New York with six flower candles and two organic flower teas. And from there, it took off and blossomed into something amazing. It has evolved into over a hundred products and has become very popular. Red flower was founded by yael alkalay who was inspired to create a kind of beauty that is not easily bottled, one that focuses both on the internal and the external. Its luxury, meets serenity, meets eco-chic.

A partnership with The Harmony Hotel, a luxury “green” hotel in Costa Rica, inspired founder Yael Alkalay to reformulate her already pure, flower skin line. She was asked to create a bio-degradable, bio-compatible body and hair line that would work harmoniously with their hotel’s grey water system that feeds into a garden of banana trees, ginger plants and other wildlife. Throughout this, she researched and learned the impact personal care products have on the environment, and sourced ingredients that were not only good for the skin, but also had a positive effect on the environment. Through the year and a half of research with the hotel’s ethnobotanist led to the new formulation not just for the hotel’s rooms and spas, but in each and every product of flower skin.

She infused her new found knowledge into every aspect of Red Flower’s new Flower Skin line. While all the best-selling brands were already pure, she kicked it a notch, and made it simply amazing. It now has a greater essence of purity. It combines Organic Flowers, bio-dynamic honey, and wild crafted botanicals. The line also has been repackaged to include a picture on the front, that wraps around the side as well. It shows a delicate flower fossil, the oldest flower found, it dates back 120 million years. The image represents the line’s new beginning, the rebirth of flower skin.

I HIGHLY recommend going to the Harmony Hotel site, ONLY when you have extra time on your hands. I went to the site when I was researching this product, and I spent *countless* minutes, mentally booking a fantastic getaway. *sigh* I wish….

I think its VERY cool how the hotel handles Red Flower products as well. They are presented in post-consumer recycled glass containers that housekeeping cleans and refills regularly.Very eco-friendly, I applaud that. Hotel amenities can be very wasteful, all the little plastic bottles. Tisk. Tisk.

The products are good for you, good for your soul, and good for the earth. And that’s something to feel good about.
