Our eponymous product line was born in 2013 and developed in collaboration with a team of more than 50 estheticians to address the needs of our clients using only the highest-quality ingredients and pure essential oils. milk + honey’s product line recently expanded to skincare and milk + honey’s products are sold at dozens of retailers, including Free People, Neiman Marcus, and directly through milkandhoney.com. Recently, milkandhoney.com launched CURATED by milk + honey, a collection that highlights clean products we love from other brands.
