BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. — New local business Petal and Hive is offering plant-based skincare products with a focus on natural beauty.
Founded by cosmetic chemist Jillian Ehrenberg, Petal and Hive is an all-natural skincare brand that uses herbal extracts in every bottle and jar to create original formulas that are clean, eco-friendly and luxurious.
Moisturizers, eye creams, serums, oils, cleansers, toners, lotions and more are made in the Petal and Hive lab, which is right inside its retail location at 89 Milton Ave. in Ballston Spa.
Ehrenberg, who originally began selling her skincare products several years ago at farmers markets and other sites, opened the small store late last year as her business continued to grow.
Petal and Hive recently celebrated this expansion at a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce.
On this occasion, Ehrenberg was congratulated by representatives from the chamber as well as local leaders and community members.
Petal and Hive has products for ”all ages and stages of your skin,” Ehrenberg said, noting that all skin conditions respond well to the formulas.
With a strong understanding of both skin and skincare products, Ehrenberg can help customers choose products that fit their needs, and enjoys helping people in this unique way.
When she’s not on the sales floor assisting shoppers, Ehrenberg can be found in the lab experimenting with new concoctions.
Throughout the entire Petal and Hive line, “I am very selective about my ingredients,” Ehrenberg said.
One of the most popular items at Petal and Hive is the Intense Hydration Moisturizer, a rich moisturizer that promotes healthy skin and delivers anti-aging plant extracts and antioxidants directly to the skin.
In addition to Petal and Hive products, the store also carries other brands with equal standards of clean ingredients and great quality, Ehrenberg said.
In an effort to be environmentally sustainable, many of the products in the Petal and Hive skincare line are packaged in glass, which makes them easy to sanitize and refill. The business offers a discounted refill price for customers who choose to reuse their containers.
When deciding to open a physical location for Petal and Hive, Ehrenberg was excited to bring her business to Ballston Spa. “This is a fabulous community,” she said. “People in Ballston Spa are very supportive of local shops, and there’s fantastic foot traffic.”
Petal and Hive is open Tuesday through Sunday, with extended holiday hours beginning soon.
