In developing the botaniques Sleep Series, Annee looked at the causes of what keeps us awake and how holding that stress in our bodies prevents quality sleep. botaniques was created to combat the effects of daily stresses on our skin and to support general wellbeing. As lack of quality sleep is one of the biggest contributors to daily stress, Annee spent countless hours in clinic and in the lab, researching the reasons why we don’t sleep and what’s keeping us awake. Creating a product that makes you sleepy wasn’t enough; her intention has always been to create a product that supports quality sleep by addressing the root cause and not the symptom. So these formulations are not a quick fix, they will work gradually over time to improve the quality of your sleep. It is when we sleep well that our bodyis able to repair and restore the effects of daily stress most efficiently. A good night’s sleep is written all over your face, making quality sleep an essential part of a daily skincare routine.
