Aquamarine has long been associated with courage, strength and resilience. Different civilizations have also prized this gemstone because they believe it helps resolve conflicts, both in peacetime (lawsuits) and in war (on the battlefield). To that end, many have worn aquamarine charms before going into both courts and battles, among other areas that needed speedy, favorable conflict resolution.
One conflict that aquamarine also seems to solve is skin inflammation: Kristals Cosmetics researchers observed that aquamarine contains compounds that sooth irritated skin, along with refreshing skin in general.
Formulating the Product
The Aquamarine – The Man- Eau de Toilette was inspired not only by aquamarine’s power to soothe skin (a practical concern for any man whose skin gets irritated by a daily shave) but also because of the stone’s association with courage and strength. With that in mind, Kristals Cosmetics researchers developed Aquamarine – The Man- Eau de Toilette to accentuate and highlight masculinity by powering up the gemstone’s intrinsic soothing effects on skin. That’s why they incorporated a range of botanical extracts that also can help calm inflamed, irritated skin, such as chamomile, lemon balm, green tea and aloe vera. Beyond calm, these ingredients also offer the skin much-needed nutrients. Another aspect of aquamarine that Kristals Cosmetics product formulators factored into their formulation was that aquamarine also appears to have bacteria-fighting compounds, which adds to the overall effects of the formulation. Besides these beneficial properties, Aquamarine – The Man- Eau de Toilette formula is topped off with a long-lasting masculine fragrance that refreshes and inspires.
