Herbivore Botanicals - Our Founder
Herbivore Botanicals began in 2011 by Julia Wills and Alexander Kummerow( husband and wife) in their Seattle kitchen. Making a "spur of the moment decision" to quit her job, Julia began making her own natural beauty products, thanks to encouragement from Alex. This hobby took a turn when Alex bought Julia a soap-making kit as a spontaneous gift.
Within a few weeks Julia was making some really amazing soap bars. At that time Alex had been dealing with psoriasis for about three-four years. He began using the soaps that Julia made and t psoriasis dissipated within weeks. That was an eye opening event for both of them.
This realization made Alex and Julia decide to start selling their soaps at a local farmer's market and set up an Etsy shop online. Within months they were drowning in orders and struggling to keep up with demand. Alex then decided to also quit his job and focus on Herbivore Botanicals with Julia full-time.

Herbivore Botanicals Reviews
Moon Fruit Retinol Alternative Serum
Linda - "Love Herbivore Botanicals. Easy shopping experience So happy that I purchased this at a savings I will be checking this site for other brands I love This product is amazing Visible difference in just a few days One of the few “clean” skincare lines."
Ginger - "I enjoy using this Herbivore Botanicals product because it makes my skin feel so soft. It blends perfectly with the emerald oil and makes my skin feel very hydrated. Thank you for adding this to your line."
Sammie - "Best non-irritating retinol alternative EVER. I'm an Esthetician, and I haven't found a retinol or retinol alternative that doesn't irritate my skin until this. Hopefully, this Herbivore Botanicals formula never changes, because I'll use this forever!"
Blue Tansy AHA +BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask
Angela - "Great Herbivore Botanicals mask. Love this mask! My skin is clear and even after it. It does not irritate my skin and I can use it several times a week."
Sandra - "I loved this mask. It was potent enough to minimize pores but not irritating. This Herbivore Botanicals mask leaves my skin feeling refreshed and ready for my moisturizer/serums/creams. A little goes a long way, it’s not meant to layer and be thick on your face. Just a nice thin layer covers most of your face."
Angela - "This Herbivore Botanicals mask dries quickly after application. Afterwards, my skin is hydrated, soft, and fresh feeling. I noticed that it dries up existing blemishes."
Pink Cloud Rosewater Jelly Cleanser
Linda - "Love this Cleanser. This is my 4th bottle. It is mild and my face feels soft but clean. It is a "clean" line, not animal tested. I highly recommend this Herbivore Botanicals cleanser."
Halimah - "Aaaahhhhmazing! This Herbivore Botanicals face wash is absolutely amazing. I have sensitive skin. I love how my skin doesn't burn when I use it. After I wash it off my skin is soft and smooth. You only need one pump. Thank goodness I bought two bottles because I see this selling out. And the price. I love how affordable this face wash is. I love this brand's products."
HN - "I really like this Herbivore Botanicals cleanser; I have super sensitive skin that reacts to just about everything. I have been using this cleanser for a few weeks and absolutely love it. It does not dry my skin, cause any redness or irritation, nor is this too oily or too heavy for my combo skin here in the humid ozarks summer. I will purchase again."
Aquarius Pore Purifying Clarity Cream
Barbara - "I've struggled with my skin for 35 years and am so impressed with this cream! In less than 3 weeks, my pores have shrunk, there is less oily shine, and the redness is gone. This Herbivore Botanicals is the best skincare product I have ever found."
Irena - "Smooooth! This Herbivore Botanicals cream combined with Lapis made my face feel like butter."

Claire - "I had been skeptical about using an oil versus a serum because I never had before, and was worried it would clog my pores. I was so wrong. This makes my skin feel radiant and smooth I love this Herbivore Botanicals oil."

Pink Cloud Soft Moisture Cream
Ana - "Incredible. this Herbivore Botanicals is very moisturizing. Makes my skin look younger and supple. And the best part, no allergies to its components."
Renee - "This moisturizer gives my skin plenty of moisture without being too heavy. My skin is prone to breakouts and it doesn’t seem to clog my pores. I also suffer from dermatitis flare ups. This is why I switched to something more natural. This Herbivore Botanicals works "great!"
Aleia - "This Pink Cloud moisturizer by Herbivore Botanicals is a light and effective delight."
Lapis Facial Oil
Natasha - "Fast Absorption! The smell and of course the color reminds me of the ocean. A little bit goes a long way and absorbs pretty quickly into the skin. Will certainly buy this Herbivore Botanicals oil again!"
Stacey - "I was hesitant to try this face oil. I tried one from another brand that I didn't like and was very skeptical. This oil absorbs much better than the other and, as mentioned in another review, I notice my breakouts have lessened and my skin seems less oily since I started using this Herbivore Botanicals product. I'm so happy I was introduced to it at Sephora and just purchased my second bottle."
Francesca - "Excellent hydration for acne prone skin. Started developing hormonal acne below my nose around the mouth. Hideous and leaves terrible scars. This Herbivore Botanicals oil provides the hydration I need without causing more acne."
