Our Philosophy

For anything to bloom, it must be cared for. Our products will always be formulated with 100% nature gifted and skin-loving ingredients that soothe, moisturize and glow your skin, creating that perfect Zen & Bloom balance.®

The Brand

Zen & Bloom was birthed from my struggle of wanting to ditch the chemical-laden skincare products from my favorite brands, while not wanting to sacrifice the deliciously yummy aromas I'd become accustomed to.

Many of the "natural" brands I came across over the years, gave me the false impression that the "natural girl scent" was not a desirably sweet, floral or sensual one. I knew the natural skincare journey I so badly wanted to embark on, did not have to be a "one scent fits all" deal, so I started researching clean ingredients and began formulating them in my kitchen. I'm here to tell you that natural skincare does NOT have to be bland, if you don't want it to be. You've got options. Now that's what I call balance! I have a passion for creating natural, cruelty-free products that are free of harsh chemicals, mineral oils, and toxic preservatives.

Our product line includes luxuriously silky whipped body butter, exfoliating sugar body scrubs and body oils. The Zen & Bloom product line is expanding to include bath soaps, facial masques, herbal teas, and much more. From a mere personal skincare rediscover journey in 2018, to a side hustle in 2019 to a full fledge e-commerce business in 2020, to entering the first in-store retailing in 2021 to the 3rd in 2022. 

We are a small but motivated company working exclusively to bring you the highest quality products and skincare resources. We offer all of this while providing attentive customer service and friendly support. The needs and concerns of our customers are always a top priority, so we hope you will enjoy our products as much as we enjoy formulating them you.
