Why is skincare so expensive?

Skincare is often viewed as a luxury. With social media and magazines covered in high-end brands, famous faces and exquisite packaging, it can often feel self-indulgent and excessive to treat yourself to skincare products. Prices for the biggest names in the skincare industry can also run pretty high, pushing skincare products down many people’s list of priorities. Spending up to £80 on a tub of facial moisturiser seems extortionate - so why exactly are the prices so high?
The simple answer is - they shouldn’t be. The cost of luxury skincare products often aren’t a reflection of the quality or effectiveness of the ingredients involved. When a product has a high price tag, sometimes it can simply be a case of paying for a big brand name. The biggest skincare brands strive to maintain their luxury status and compete with other brands by ensuring their prices always remain high.

Our magical ingredients

When it comes to selecting skincare products, ingredients are the most important factor to consider. From creams and serums to cleansers and masks, everything you layer on your skin is absorbed into your body - which is why it’s crucial to understand what exactly you’re putting on. The ingredients label on most high street skincare products consist of numerous lengthy, unrecognisable names. Most of these are synthetic, parabens and silicones which preserve the product rather than offer any real benefits to your skin.

Here at Belenos Skin Botanique, we think that less is more. We handpick all of our wonderful natural ingredients - and keep them minimal, by only using up to ten ingredients in each product. Every powerful ingredient is selected for its unique properties and therapeutic benefits. We wanted to delve deeper into some of our favourite fruit oils, to give you an insight into why we’ve included them in our amazing organic products.
