According to själ’s founders Kristin and Karen Petrovich, beauty products should be as much about what they do on the inside as on the outside. The Swedish mother/daughter duo fuses scientific advances with ancient healing practices. Treatments include ingredients such as pearls, platinum, Siberian ginseng, and gemstone blends—each formulated to balance both body and mind.
“My mother and I have always used eastern medicines for prevention, relaxing, and to balance energy. We found that these ancient medicines coupled with the latest advances in anti-aging technology made the most balanced and effective products.” Kristin told The Window.
If you’re thinking that using a mixture of nano-gold and sapphires to heal and protect sounds like something straight out of a Harry Potter novel—think again. Scientists are currently using the same platinum delivery system employed within själ products in bio-tech cancer research to target weak cells. Besides, according to Barneys’ beauty buyers Stephanie Nitschke and Delia Folk, the proof is in the pudding.
“I personally love the Orbe eye cream and use it daily,” said Nitschke. “The ingredients are soothing, calming, and instantly hydrate. And all the själ scents are so light and fresh.” For Folk, the själ Bio-Regeneratif Serum is really the all-star in the group. “I use it in the morning under my makeup. When it goes on, it immediately brightens and leaves a shimmering, radiant glow on my skin.”

“All matter has energy. However, gemstones and minerals naturally emit at a higher frequency. This is positive for our cells—and ultimately for our health. It helps direct energy to specific areas of need, constantly adapting to your skin under any condition and allowing for maximum benefits.”
