Behind the Brand: Clark’s Botanicals

Hailed by celebrities and beauty mags alike, Clark's Botanicals has established itself as a plant-based skincare line, specializing in rebalancing the skin regardless of type. What's maybe even more fascinating than the results you'll see using their product, is the story of how the company came to be.

In the summer of 2002, founder Francesco Clark (pictured) suffered a crippling spinal cord injury in a swimming pool accident. Shortly after losing his ability to walk, Clark discovered he had also lost his ability to sweat, leading to clogged pores and chronic breakouts.

Enter Francesco's father, Dr. Harold Clark. Trained in both traditional Western medicine and homeopathy, Dr. Clark worked with his son to develop botanically-based formulas that effectively rebalanced his skin – clearing it up entirely. Word got around about their plant-based cure, and in 2005 (three years after Francesco's accident) Clark's Botanicals was launched.

Francesco Clark considers his company an organic part of his recovery, saying "Everything about this line has a purpose and reason for being, from ingredients to the packaging. It's an expression of who I am in its purest form." Francesco also serves as a National Ambassador for the Christopher Reeve Foundation, which is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.

We applaud Francesco and Dr. Harold Clark for turning tragedy into triumph. Rebalance your skin with Clark's Botanicals Soothing Herbal Face Wash, perfect for removing makeup and impurities.
