Angel Face Botanicals is a small-batch, artisan skincare company. We make facial care, bath, body, and aromatherapy products using sustainably produced natural and organic ingredients including cold-pressed oils, therapeutic grade essential oils, hydrosols, salts, minerals, herbs, and flowers. Our products are filled with phyto-nutrients, antioxidants, detoxifying minerals, and made with lots of love for beautiful, radiant, and healthy skin.
Our natural spa products are formulated using the therapeutic principles of Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is the healing art of using Essential Oils to enhance the well-being of your mind, body, spirit & planet. We choose to include the planet in our cycle of wellness, because it is only with nature's pure, vital plants and nutrient-rich minerals that our products can exist.
My name is Jessica Ress, aka SpaGoddess, author of 100 Organic Skincare Recipes, founder, and CEO of Angel Face Botanicals, Inc. As a fifth generation California Girl, I grew up surrounded with fresh air, sunshine, the beaches, forests and gardens full of flowers, fruits, and vegetables. I chose a creative, artistic path achieving a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute with a semester at the Reitveld Academy in Holland.
Since the early 90’s I’ve been interested in healing herbs and began creating spa products and lotions as gifts for friends and family. Making exquisite aromatherapy facial care products, botanical perfumes and lush, luxurious natural body care products has been my passion for over 20 years.
Angel Face Botanicals developed out of a need that my life’s work to be more connected to the earth. Nature provides an amazing world full of divinely decadent and infinitely therapeutic ingredients with which to create my exquisite spa products. It is inspiring and rewarding to use botanicals as my palate. I collaborate with the plants and natural materials to create an interactive experiential art in the form of usable products to inspire joy in the user along with the noticeable benefits of healthy, radiant skin.
Inspiration comes from everywhere! The gorgeous flowers blooming in the garden. The fresh and heavenly scent of fresh fruit. A softly scented breeze. Rich sap dripping from a stately evergreen tree. Travels nearby and to far off lands. Richly decadent and ancient traditions of fragrance crafting. My ingredients inspire me to fun and never ending research. These inspirations manifest from my imagination into academic research, formulation, trial and error, testing, and then, finally, the finished products.
I am also deeply inspired by my customers (you!). It is wonderful to read your reviews and hear how my products are making a difference for you and those you love. Thanks for sharing your stories! It truly means the world to me.
Angel Face Botanicals is located in Santa Cruz, California on the breathtakingly beautiful Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary. We are a boutique facility, making everything in small batches in a controlled environment to ensure quality.
Our products are made from fairly traded, sustainably harvested, certified organic ingredients whenever possible, and always from the freshest, natural ingredients available. Our eco-friendly goodies are always naturally free of synthetic fragrances, unnecessary fillers, parabens, sulfates, silicones, and petrochemicals. We are against animal testing.
Essential Oils are steam distilled essences of natural plant materials: flowers, fruits, seeds, leaves, stems, peel, bark, wood, and roots. These concentrated extracts possess the true scents of nature along with tremendous healing properties. My recipes are like “skin food” formulated to enhance the beneficial qualities of fresh botanicals and naturally occurring minerals and salts. You will see amazing results in your skin & feel in your mind & body. I believe that true, whole plant botanicals possess esoteric healing properties that are further enhanced with self-awareness and positive intent. My products are further infused with the Universal Healing Energy of Reiki and lots of love!!
My guarantee is that we will never sacrifice our ethics and quality for profit, and we will continue to produce products with the best quality natural and organic ingredients. I make these gorgeous things because I love to! I hope that shows. And I hope you will love discovering my creations as much as I enjoy making them.
May your skin glow like the petals of a flower and smell as sweet…..
