Exceptional skin care starts with exceptional ingredients. At Monastery they have spent over a decade locating the best ingredients the world has to offer to make your skincare something extraordinary. Using essential oils carefully chosen for their non-irritating properties. Each ingredient is of the purest form and highest quality.
They source the highest quality fine oils and absolutes in the world. Typically used only by the world's best perfumers and considered too difficult to source by the majority of the skincare industry, these are the highest grade aromatics and plant materials that can be obtained. They work directly with the farmers who grow and process the source ingredients. Rose from South Africa, Neroli from France, peppercorn from Kenya, jasmine from India. And within India they source only from small farms in the Tamil Nadu region where the best of the best jasmine is grown. In their years of research and product formulation they have found that a product’s quality is dependent on all of its components. The cultivation, the climate, the human care, the storage, the pressing times, the pressing components, all of these variables matter greatly.
