10 Natural Crystal Infused Beauty Products

Some think crystal infused beauty products can boost your looks. Here’s why

By Diane Small

Crystals are making waves in the world of skincare. In ancient medicine they were used for their anti-ageing properties. In fact, the Chinese have been using jade rollers for centuries to smooth out wrinkles. But it’s only recently that crystals have moved from holistic medicine to high street shops.

Devotees claim that crystals and gemstones emit vibrations that can have an energising and healing effect on the skin. But is there any science to that?

The science behind gemstone skincare

Co-founder of Själ Skincare, Kristin Petrovich, thinks there is. She explains that as the gemstones vibrate at a higher frequency, their energy travels towards the weaker energy or cells in the body. So in a nutshell, crystal infused beauty products can work to restore and harmonise us inside and out.

Her brand works with European biotechnology companies and its products also include ingredients with plenty of research behind them, including peptides, vitamins, and fruit enzymes.

However, Whitney Bowe, a dermatologist in New York City, claims more scientific research needs to be done to determine how effective certain gemstones and crystals in skincare products can be. That being said, she also believes crystal infused beauty products can deliver benefits. Specifically, she states gold, for example, has proven anti-inflammatory properties, and has even been used for centuries to treat conditions such as arthritis.

She adds that rose quartz might help calm the complexion and improve circulation, and tourmaline is also thought to make skin more radiant.

Which gemstone does what?

For those who are into crystal healing energies, you should focus on the energetic benefits the stones bring. For example, certain crystals are calming, energising, or even associated with love and romance, as is the case with rose quartz. Sapphire is thought to promote wisdom and mental acuity, while amethysts supposedly encourage purification and peacefulness.

The real question now is: which stone is best for you? Here’s a quick look at the basics of what’s behind gemstones in beauty products:

Garnet: This is said to be a crystal of passion, sensuality, beauty and wisdom. It gives you the feeling that you can have it all.

Rose Quartz: A symbol of love, rose quartz is thought to be a healing stone that can reduce inflammation and cure headaches.

Sapphire: This is said to boost  self confidence and understanding, and helps heal  diseases of the throat and lungs.

Amethyst: This wonder crystal has the power to clean blood vessels, regenerate cells and increase the body’s healing ability, making it a great ingredient for skincare products.

Black Tourmaline: A stone with psychic energy, this is said to promote spiritual protection and to align the energy centres of the body. It also protects you from the negative effects of EMFs.

Malachite Extract:  Rich in copper, this is a great anti-oxidizing stone and is perfect for after-sun care.

Now that you have the lowdown on the stones, see which crystal infused beauty products could benefit you most.

  1. Interesting and unique article, but I just wanted to point out an error in the first product description. Whey protein is listed as a plant-based ingredient, but it’s actually a bi-product of cow’s milk. A small thing, but thought I would point it out to the author in case she wants to amend. Loving your magazine!
