Warmer weather is finally on the way and the flowers are beginning to bloom! These beautiful blooms can boost your self-care regime in two ways. Firstly, their beautiful aromas can help influence your mood. To either relax, invigorate, or boost your senses to help you feel good. Secondly, the botanical extracts are filled with skin-loving compounds. Including vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids to help improve the look and feel of your skin.
So, from their natural skincare benefits to their exquisite fragrances. We’ve rounded up eight floral products to make you feel and look amazing this spring!
1. Passionflower Protects and Nourishes
A key ingredient in our best-selling Hydra-Collagen Range, we use Passionflower Seed Oil. It’s deeply soothing and naturally rich in antioxidants to help protect and brighten skin. Plus, it’s also a fantastic source of omega-6 fatty acids which helps to restore the skin’s moisture barrier.
When it comes to spring skincare, masks are perfect for resetting skin, and not a lot beats a clay mask.
Use SBC’s luscious Hydra-Collagen Creamy Clay Mask
. It replenishes while it detoxifies for clear, radiant, bouncy skin – without the tightness. Antioxidant-rich Passionflower and Kukui seed oils, blend with hydrating Marine Collagen and nourishing Shea Butter, with Kaolin clay to draw out impurities.
Use 2-3 times a week in the first weeks of spring.
2. Hibiscus Firms and Enhances Radiance
Looking to revive a dull, tired complexion? Try Hibiscus. Hibiscus is a brightly coloured, ornamental plant. Naturally (very) rich in vitamins and antioxidants and helps firm and improve elasticity. Its impressive antioxidant content helps protect the skin against ageing environmental aggressors.
If you haven’t already, introduce the Hydra-Collagen & Black Moisturising Gel
. Enriched with Hibiscus Flower, Marine Collagen, and Black Pearl, to renew and enhance radiance. The results? A smooth, rejuvenated, youthful-looking complexion from top-to-toe.
3. Bakuchiol Targets Signs of Ageing
Bakuchiol is known as a plant-derived retinol alternative. That’s impressive for a flower. Bakuchiol is used in skincare to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restore firmness, and even skin tone and texture. All skin types will love this powerful floral extract.
So, if you are looking for a retinol alternative as we head into Spring try our Bakuchiol Serum
. This silky, lightweight formula targets the appearance of fine lines and improves skin texture. For a wonderfully smooth, radiant complexion.
4. Jasmine Soothes and Balances Dry Skin
Known as a holy flower, Jasmine has been used for centuries in aromatherapy. This beautiful blossom has a comforting and soothing effect, for a balanced, harmonious complexion. It also provides nourishing care for dry or sensitive skin… and it smells amazing!

balances and gently cleanses your skin. Infused with nourishing Jasmine extract, Starflower, and Evening Primrose Oil for the ultimate bath or shower pamper.
5. Elderflower Refines and Protects
Elderflower is a beautiful white blossom rich in antioxidants to help protect skin against free radical damage. The blossom also helps refine the complexion and minimises the appearance of pores for a fresh, healthy-looking appearance. A key extract in our Grapefruit & Ginger range.
As we shed the knitwear, it’s time to get your skin spring ready with a gentle exfoliation. Slough away dulling dead skin cells with the Grapefruit & Ginger Body Polish. Infused with botanical extracts, including Elderflower, White Nettle, and Ivy to brighten and soften skin from top to toe.
6. Rose Calms and Restores Ageing Skin
If you’re looking for a true hero in floral skincare, keep a look out for anything that is infused with Rose. Renowned for its ability to calm and unwind the mind with its soothing aroma, it also helps restore ageing skin, reduce redness, and support your skin.

is formulated to deliver a delicate dose of cooling hydration on the face and body – wherever you need it most! Infused with Damask Rose, French Rose, and Organic Rose Water to truly infuse your skin with softening, hydrating, and calming properties.
7. Lavender Soothes and Relaxes
The extract you need to use when you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or struggling to sleep. Lavender
extract is known best for its relaxing and soothing properties. Although you can use our Lavender-infused products at any time of the day, the familiar, comforting lavender scent is particularly best at bedtime.
So, when you want to get a good night’s sleep, we recommend treating your mind and body with the Lavender Hand & Body Lotion.
The soothing lotion sinks into the skin without leaving any residue, perfect for Spring. Leaving skin feeling soft and nurtured, and infused with a calming scent that will lull you into a deep slumber.
8. Calendula is Ideal for Sensitive Skin

It’s time to beat the effects the winter has on your skin. Especially your hands. Try the Calendula & Macadamia Hand & Foot Cream to leave your hands velvety soft. Plus, use it on your feet to get them ready for those summer sandals.
And that is why we love using floral extracts in our skin, hair, and body care products! They are beautiful, effective, and for the most part, smell incredible!
