Clark’s Botanicals is one of the most compelling skincare lines we know, and not just because it delivers results. If you’re not familiar with this rising brand or its backstory, you might be surprised to find out that a spinal cord injury led to the creation of this amazing collection.
An accident left founder Francesco Clark unable to walk or sweat, which resulted in chronically clogged pores. He worked with his physician father to create jasmine-centric solutions that beautifully rebalanced his-and a growing number of fans’-skin.
One of our favorite products is the Smoothing Marine Cream, a paraben-free moisturizer that lightly exfoliates with glycolic acid. In addition to CB’s signature jasmine essential oil, it contains arabica (coffee), vitamin C, and wrinkle-softening algae extract.
The calming formula, which smells absolutely incredible, leaves skin with an an almost unrecognizably wonderful new texture: velvety, clear and fresh.
Even without Francesco Clark’s remarkable journey, we’d be thoroughly impressed with Smoothing Marine Cream and its skin-perfecting siblings.
