Eminence Organics Stone Crop Collection: Skin Saving Succulents

The Eminence Organics Stone Crop Collection is a classic for good reason. If your skin is feeling dry and irritated from environmental stress, shaving or general life - you’re not alone! To help improve your complexion, learn how skin saving succulents, like stone crop, can help soothe dry skin and minimize the visible signs of aging.

What Is Stone Crop?

Stone crop is a small succulent plant commonly found in Hungary. With petal-like leaves, stone crops are a hardy and beautiful addition to any garden. They  are also used on green roofs as they don't attract pests and are resistant to disease. Stone crop does best in a moderate, dry environment but can thrive almost anywhere with proper care.

Skin Saving Succulents

Not only does the stone crop plant help reduce pigmentation and lighten the complexion, it also assists in regeneration, firming stressed skin, toning the epidermis, moisturizing, helping reduce signs of aging and calming sensitive skin.

Like other succulents (think aloe vera and prickly pear), stone crop offers deeply nourishing yet lightweight hydration. As Eminence Organics president Boldijarre Koronczay explained to DAYSPA:

“Not only does the stone crop plant help reduce pigmentation and lighten the complexion, it also assists in regeneration, firming stressed skin, toning the epidermis, moisturizing, helping reduce signs of aging and calming sensitive skin.”

Hi! I'm Natalie with Eminence Organic Skin Care and welcome back to another one of our beautiful episodes of “In The Mix.” Really excited when this came to my plate because I've been dying to talk about this amazing, amazing plant - stone crop.

It's a succulent. It is amazing. And it's been around for a really long time. Some of us may even recognize it. You may even have it growing right outside your home right now. We see succulents being used a lot for things like green design to better our environment, and it’s been an inspiration for us at Eminence to use as one of our signature scents and ingredients. We have built an entire range inspired by this plant, called our Stone Crop Collection.

When In Doubt - Stone Crop It Out

I'm really excited to share with you some of our cool pieces from this collection, and if you haven't had a chance to experience our stone crop products, I recommend trying our Stone Crop Collection Tube. At Eminence Organics, we have this fabulous little tagline that we use: "When in doubt, stone crop it out," and that's for good reason. It is good for all skin types, everybody can use it.

Gentlemen that I know also enjoy using it because it's very fresh in scent - not highly floral, making it very friendly for anyone to use. Stone crop also helps minimize the appearance of redness from dry skin so, thinking about men who often shave their face, our stone crop products are great to help soothe the skin after shaving.

Product Recommendations

A couple of recommendations to consider. Let's first start with the tube. Isn't it gorgeous? We have this beautiful Stone Crop Collection Tube, a really nice way to introduce anyone to a skin care routine in general and really accommodating for any age. From adolescent skin (bringing at-home skin care to our young friends out there) to introducing anyone who has maybe never used skin care before but wants to have a slow and gentle approach.Eminence Organics Stone Crop Collection Tube

Inside the tube, you'll find a full size of our beautiful Stone Crop Serum, which goes on before your moisturizers. We also include Stone Crop Gel Wash -  a Top Ten product, Stone Crop Masque, Stone Crop Hydrating Gel and Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer. One of my favorite parts about the Stone Crop Collection is that they give you an option of using a nice lightweight gel to finish your home care routine or you can use a cream. So whether you're oily-combination or combination-to-dry, this is a really great piece to introduce a collection to your friends, family or yourself.Eminence Organics Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer

A newer addition is Stone Crop Cleansing Oil from our Microgreens Collection. Any of you who use cleansing oils will know that they're fabulous for double-cleansing, an incredibly valuable technique for you makeup gurus out there because it really helps to lift and pull everything off. This cleansing oil is also very effective for those of you who are dealing with problem skin. Don’t forget: oil for oil, just because you have an oilier skin type doesn't mean you can't use cleansing oils. This will leave the face beautifully even in tone afterward so I know you're going to love this one.Eminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil

We also added Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant in this collection, which is like the sister or the brother to our Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. Take any cleanser you like - you could even use Stone Crop Cleansing Oil or Stone Crop Gel Wash - and use a couple of shakes, adding a little bit of water. This will really help with skin that is experiencing milia, blackheads and congestion.Eminence Organics Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant

The one product I can't live without, to be honest, is our Stone Crop Hydrating Mist. Any of you who love mineral makeup or powders, this mist is super brilliant as a setting spray. It doesn't leave a dry residue and it really makes the skin look not super dewy - but very hydrated. It is my gym bag companion. It's the thing that refreshes me all day long. It smells amazing and it doesn't annoy anybody sitting beside you either. As I said, when in doubt, stone crop it out!Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist

We have other stone crop products as well, including Stone Crop Body Lotion. This beautiful succulent plant truly has a lot to offer and has inspired one of the most special lines that we have.Eminence Organics Stone Crop Body Lotion
