The story of Red Flower begins in 1999 with their New York City boutique opening in 2000. Red Flower is now carried at some of the most prestigious hotels and spas. There’s a rich history and mission behind the brand. To know the Red Flower story is to know the founder Yael Alkalay. The Red Flower founder descends from eight generations of Turkish grand rabbis, Kiev musicians, Argentinian pampas farmers, and her grandfather was the first dermatologist in Bulgaria. Her global roots inspired her pursuit of botanical practices in college after which she worked as Creative Director at Shiseido. It was only after Yael experienced an intensive stroke while skiing on vacation did she embrace living life consciously to its fullest potential and Red Flower was born.
The Red Flower Purifying Body Wash in Palo Santo is a unctuous body wash that feels nourishing and creates an excellent lather. It has a musky, earthy scent from the palo santo and simply smells amazing with the warm steam of the shower.
Red Flower offers three types of washes:
- Body wash
- Therapeutic wash
- Hand wash
The Red Flower body washes come in six scents and various sizes including Wanderlust, Italian Blood Orange, Icelandic Moonflower, Ocean, Palo Santo and French Lavender. Amber Wood is a new scent soon to be launched.
Each Red Flower body wash is made of a blend of certified organic fruit, flowers and leaves. They use concentrated extracts certified organic cucumber, apple, chamomile, green tea and ginger that stimulates, repairs and vitalizes as well as essential oils that lend it its sensorial factor.
The Therapeutic Body Washes sound extra divine and come in Active Organic Milk Forest, Yuzu Mimosa Sea Algae, and Moroccan Mint Tea Silt. The Red Flower hand washes come in two scents (Italian Blood Orange and Wanderlust).
The Red Flower body lotion is a lightweight and hydrating lotion that sinks in well and has an intoxicating scent. Palo Santo is such an amazing spiritual scent and I could not be more excited that there’s a brand making beautiful Palo Santo products that are all natural. The addition of Copaiba and White Birch along with sandalwood and juniper make for a rich multi-layered Palo Santo scent unlike any other.
Red Flower also has a pretty extensive range of 100% botanically based skincare including cleansers, mists, serums, moisturizers, oils and masks.
This creamy lotion-like cleanser is made of vitamin-rich marine plants, arctic white peat, organic mushrooms and sun-filled berries for a complete therapeutic experience. It only provides a gentle cleanse using a blend of aloe and sea algae that balances and repairs environmentally damaged skin. The Red Flower cleanser can also be used as a hydrating mask so you can leave the product on your face longer and allow all those nourishing ingredients to sink in. It feels very soothing and hydrating and has an uplifting therapeutic scent.
