Elemental Herbology - Works In Harmony With Your Body's Changing Needs

Elemental Herbology is a skincare brand from the UK founded by Kristy Goodger, a trained Acupuncture and Massage Therapist, who has her own wellness clinic in Queensland, Australia.

*In 1999 she moved to Japan to train under the instruction of a third generation Acupuncture and Shiatsu Master before traveling extensively, exploring the diversity of global healing modalities and spa rituals.

Settling in the UK, Kristy began experimenting with combining oriental techniques with traditional botanical remedies and advanced sports medicine. From boutique to 5 star operations, Kristy gained the reputation of delivering an ‘authentic’ treatment experience.

Drawn to the beauty and simplicity of pure essential plant oils, Kristy co-founded Shengaia, a boutique apothecary in Primrose Hill, London that produced premium skincare products and treatments.

In 2004, Kristy became Spa Development Manager for Space NK, a luxury niche beauty retailer,
synonymous with innovative, cutting edge beauty products. Kristy managed the redevelopment of the treatment menu, creating a range of exclusive signature treatments and packages. She also established advanced therapeutic training workshops; assessed and implemented recruitment strategies and developed operational and marketing directives.

Through years of study and professional practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Kristy observed the interplay of elements and how our bodies are constantly striving to achieve a state of equilibrium. It was through the application of this theory to skin care that Kristy fulfilled a long standing ambition to create Elemental Herbology. A highly effective, nutrient-rich, results-driven product supported by expertly crafted bespoke spa treatments for niche beauty retailers and five star spas worldwide.

*Information from the Press Release

There are several ranges of products for the face and body catering for different skin needs based on the changing seasons: The Summer Daily Essentials, Winter Daily Essentials and Essential Skin Therapy.

One might be wondering how can the products from this brand be applied to the use in a tropical country like Malaysia which does not have 4 seasons?

Well, basically, the Summer Daily Essentials range is catered for congested T-zone and problematic skin; Winter Daily Essentials for dry, sensitive skin; and Essential Skin Therapy is known as S.O.S. Skincare Solutions which help skin adapt and regain its equilibrium after exposure to different aggressors such as pollution, air conditioning, travel, hormonal
changes, dehydration, poor diet, lack of sleep and smoking.
