Flor Botanica explores the intersection of culture, self-care, community, and the natural environment. We use traditional, healing plant oils, butters, botanicals, clays, and minerals. Our products are multitasking, designed to have minimal impact on the environment, and support the people who grow and make the ingredients we use.
We believe that the natural environment offers us everything we need to take care of our skin. We believe in using nature’s resources respectfully and intentionally. We believe in supporting our community. We believe in taking our time to make the very best.
Our skin care products are made in small batches by a third generation soap maker with deep roots in San Antonio, Austin, and the Texas Hill Country.
We follow the oldest known soap-making technique, which is now often called hot process but once was simply known as making soap. We slowly cook butters and oils until the soap-making process known as saponification is complete. Only then do we add the active emollients, herbs, flowers, clays and essential oils. This preserves the beneficial qualities of raw, unprocessed ingredients.
We use local, organic, and free trade where possible. Each ingredient is thoughtfully chosen to create the best experience for your body and mind.
