58Flora is a green beauty line handcrafted in small batches in Kingston, NY. Based on the ancient art of perfume, we use flowers and all natural ingredients to capture the luxury of essence. Our products are organic, ethically-sourced, cruelty-free and vegan. We use no parabens, phthalates, or synthetics.
Perfumes can be traced back to ancient cultures. Historically plant-based, their ingredients ranged from flowers to resins to woods. Scents were so important that many associated them with the gods. 58Flora honors this tradition with their line of natural, artisanal beauty treatments for hair, face and body, crafted utilizing the highest-quality ingredients, selected without limitations of cost.
The line was founded by Janette Bower through her studies in aromatherapy, perfumery, green medicine and psychology. She is owner of a boutique salon in New York City and a wellness and apothecary in Kingston, NY. For the past 22 years, Janette has worked in fashion and with a high-end clientele as a colorist. Her work and studies led her to begin crafting her own beauty line, taking her knowledge of wellness and transforming it in a direction of luxury. She encourages people to be mindful of what is used on their bodies and to embrace the benefits of natural beauty.
58Flora is a homage to Janette’s Dad, who was a Chemist and Race Car Driver. His car number was 58.
The story begins with a girl and her dreams, from a chemist, race car driving father, to a musical mom. From a chef of a Grandmother and the simplicity of her Grandfather, who grew their food and took pride in living from the land.
Her life forms – exploring the woods with her brother, she is a violet farmer, she is an inventor, she is a designer, she is living outside the box with the hopes to spread beauty wherever she roams.
There are chapters to this story and the journey has taken her to many places and opened her mind to the possibilities. There is a love for this planet and the people that explore it and a desire for preservation. There is an inspiration of ancient times and teachings, colliding in a modern world capturing the sacred essence of life.
As I walk through this earth I acknowledge its beauty and I take a moment to look to the sky and extend my gratitude for all things, my family and this life that I behold.
