Seaflora Skincare is committed to the ecological preservation and sustainability of the environment. Year round we work to protect our agricultural lands, rural countryside, coastlines and marine ecosystems. From start to finish, Seaflora is committed to bringing you skincare that is healthy and nontoxic to your body and earth-friendly at the same time.
All Seaflora products are formulated and hand crafted locally in Sooke, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. All seaweeds infused into every Seaflora Skincare formulation are hand harvested in the nearby Salish Sea.
Our philosophy is ‘Sea-to-Spa’, much like the farm-to-plate movement. We source as many local ingredients possible, including all seaweeds, ocean muds, clays, and marine minerals. Located on Vancouver Island, we are one of the largest licensed seaweed harvesting companies in British Columbia. We hand-harvest each species, ensuring that the quality is uncompromised, remaining true to our commitment of sustainability.
We believe in formulating small, hand-made batches to ensure the potency and effectiveness of our products. Our family-run business proudly manufactures our entire product line at Head Office, in the breathtaking west coast town of Sooke. Each formulation begins with one of our precious Organic Seaweed Elixirs™, starting each product off with raw, wild, organic seaweed.
Our ingredients are whole, healthy and nutritious, free of contaminants and toxins, rich in vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fatty acids, phytonutrients and amino acids. Together, these firm the appearance of the skin, increase vitality and hydration, leaving skin with a vibrant and youthful glow.
We do it all to honor the European tradition of Thalassotherapy, or the notion of going to the ocean for good health. We continuously work to produce exquisite products that feed the body through our largest organ, the skin. Humans have a flowing chemistry with the ocean, which means the seaweed’s nutritional content is readily bioavailable to our bodies. These superfoods offer the best support for modern living, because they remove toxins and free up detoxification pathways, promote circulation, deeply re-mineralize, nurture the cellular structure, balance pH levels, and act as catalysts for cellular functions within the body.
Eminence Organic Skin Care uses the finest natural, organic and Biodynamic® ingredients to provide you with the best and most effective organic skin care products in the market today.
Biodynamic® farming began in 1924 and is a practice that was rooted in the teachings of philosopher Rudolf Steiner, who believed the farm to be a beautiful, living, breathing organism, where a sustainable, balanced and natural approach would produce the healthiest crops and keep the natural delicate and intricate ecosystem intact.
Eminence Organic Skin Care has been in business since 1958 and has become world renowned for being one of the top best selling spa product lines in the market, and at leading spas worldwide.
Our products are proudly free of parabens, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals.
We continue to use hand-picked fresh ingredients to create products that contain potent healing and beautifying properties. Many of these ingredients are combined with pure waters drawn from a thermal hot spring lake containing minerals and trace elements found nowhere else on earth.
Our products are handmade without any severe heating or hydrogenating processes that can affect the nutritional content and potency of natural ingredients. Vitamins are captured in their all-natural fresh base, offering dramatic results as actual seeds, pulps and peels impart regenerative and healing powers that only nature can produce.
We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We are proud to use wind energy and solar power energy in the making of our products and we plant a tree for every product sold.

We believe products created by fusing the power of nature with cosmeceutical science can bring real changes to the skin’s appearance.

And it is what makes Organic Nation products feel luxurious on your skin. We source the finest glass from Europe for our bottles. Perfumers create our signature fragrances, not chemists.

As a non-psychoactive cannabinoid procured from hemp, CBD offers an exciting and diverse range of potential health and wellness benefits. As opposed to THC which attaches directly to the CB1 receptor in the brain, CBD is believed to naturally encourage the body to produce endocannabinoids, helpful compounds that aid with inflammation and swelling. Additionally, CBD is believed to have a positive correlation with improved mood, memory, sleep, and aptitude.
According to scientific research, field experimentation, and clinical testing, CBD could also host a versatile range of potential health treatments. As a result, this hemp-derived compound could be a viable treatment option for chronic pain, alcoholism, diabetes, arthritis, PTSD, schizophrenia, depression, epilepsy, neurological disorders, and infections where antibiotics are ineffective.
Additionally, CBD is frequently used to combat anxiety, insomnia, and high blood pressure. As a result, CBD users report falling asleep faster, staying asleep longer, and feeling well-rested upon waking up.
CBD is available in a wide range of forms, including topical creams and oils for pain relief, patches, ointments, tinctures, edibles, bath salts and bath bombs, and vape pens. The difference between each variant depends on the goals of the user, how long they desire the effects, and how fast they want to experience relief.
Overall, exciting new research and developments are occurring within the cannabis industry on a daily basis. We are truly only in the beginning phases, as new CBD properties that boast health and wellness benefits are still being unearthed.
