The Starflower Essentials skin care products are made right here in Sarasota, Florida, although the ingredients are sourced from all over the world. Cherylyn Van Kirk, the alchemist of Starflower, dedicates herself to finding the highest quality ingredients for her products and combining them for super-efficiency without the irritation that can occur with some organic products. Her ingredients are all food-grade, truly organic and cruelty-free. The products have an amazing ability to calm, hydrate and clear without any heaviness or greasiness at all. They are pristinely packaged in glass and have a shelf life of about 18 months in most cases, without any synthetic preservatives at all.
