Stone crop is the featured ingredient found in several Eminence Organics award-winning products, like Stone Crop Gel Wash, Stone Crop Hydrating Mist and Stone Crop Serum. But what exactly is so amazing about this plant? We were hoping you’d ask!
Three Benefits Of Stone Crop
On a recent invitational tour of our Eminence Certified Organic Farm in Hungary, Eminence Organics president, Boldijarre Koronczay shed light on the power of organic stone crop with DAYSPA’s Executive Editor, Lesley McCave:
“Not only does the stone crop plant help reduce pigmentation and lighten the complexion, it also assists in regeneration, firming stressed skin, toning the epidermis, moisturizing, helping reduce signs of aging and calming sensitive skin.”
Read on to learn about three benefits of stone crop that may surprise you:
1: Great For The Environment
Stone crop is often used on environmentally-friendly green roofs because the sturdy succulents rarely attract pests and are resistant to disease or weather conditions. They are easy to plant, don’t have a deep root system and thrive in a variety of environments.
On a hot summer day, a typical urban flat roof can reach temperatures in excess of 90°F – a major contributor to the heat island effect in cities. Green roofs, on the other hand, are much closer to the temperature of the outside air. They also absorb rainwater so it doesn’t become stormwater which causes erosion and pollution. Green roofs are a beautiful way to take care of the earth.
2: Provides Food For Bees & Butterflies
The flowers of stone crop perennials are rich with sweet nectar, attracting bees, moths and butterflies.The colors range but are usually in the pastel family, adding a soft burst of color to your gardenscape. Flowers can remain on the plants well into early winter, adding dimension and interest to the succulents even as they dry. Growing stone crop is a wonderful way to nurture bees and butterflies for most of the year!
3: Removes Makeup and Unclog Pores
Want an easy and effective way to remove makeup and unclog pores? Watch Eminence Organics Lead Skin Care Trainer Natalie use a technique called “gommage” by combining Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant with our Stone Crop Masque.
The gentle rolling, exfoliating action helps remove built up makeup and dead skin cells, revealing new, glowing skin underneath. Gommage unclogs pores, reducing the look of problem skin and leaving you with a silky-smooth finish.
