2011 Calendars

2011 Calendar



















Ready, Set....go get a 2011 calendar! Gorgeous flowers brighten each month.  Many of the flowers featured this year are from the rose garden at Brookside Gardens.  Vibrant flowers inspire many of our makeup colors.

The Autumnal Equinox inspired some new eye liner pencil colors - Cosmic Blue and Galaxy Green.  Each are black with the undertone bearing it's name.   

Candy Cane soy candleThe holiday scented soy candles are back!  Candy Cane, Hannukkah, Evergreen and Apple Cinnamon are all scented using only essential oils.  The Hannukkah candle is chocolate scented alluding to the gelt used to play the dreidle game.
Formulator's  Corner
One benefit you get as a Zosimos Botanicals customer is  personalized customer service.  Based on constructive customer feedback, three products have been reformulated and improved.  Label changes reflecting these new and improved versions are on the way! 

Repair Elixer night serumWe heard that the Repair Elixer Night Serum needed an updated scent.  The manuka oil has been replaced with Elemi essential oil.  To go even further, the Repair Elixer is now available in both regular and unscented versions.

Sometimes a skincare item looks perfect when leaving the studio, but alters after shipping.  The Argan Around eye cream was sporadically reported as having a milky consistency.  A little tweaking and the removal of coconut oil stabilized the emulsion.     

Concealer is now whipped with a creamy consistency, while still providing great coverage and avoiding settling into creases. All outstanding orders will be filled shortly, as updated labels are on order.
  

Look for the introduction of Cream Shadow in the next few weeks!
