AMBER WOODS

YOU ARE ENTERING THE PINK LIGHT GLOW...
At Pink Light we offer holistic skin care products and education for people who want to create beautiful and luxurious rituals and experiences for themselves at home through skin care and self care.

My name is Amber Woods, and I started Pink Light in 2010. I’m a licensed esthetician, trained herbalist, and holistic skin care specialist with a passion for creative business. I’m a Libra with a penchant for making things beautiful.

I have a strong belief in natural healing and self-care, and have faith in herbal medicine and truly natural ingredients as catalysts for change, because I’ve seen the results after working with thousands of clients. I focus on celebrating the beauty that every person holds and how they choose to look or express themselves, and I work to cultivate a loving self perception in my clients. I don’t believe in one standard of beauty.

In 2020, I closed our holistic facial studio in Oakland, CA due to the pandemic, and have since relocated Pink Light to New Mexico. I create all of your skin care by hand from our studio here in NM, and I may offer facials again in the future (stay tuned)!

The best way to stay informed (and receive exclusive discounts, giveaways, and my weekly skin care advice column!) is to join our email list HERE.

OUR VALUES:

We share our knowledge, but know that you are the expert on your own skin and body. We approach the skin through nurturing self love instead of shame. We reject euro-centric, misogynist, and ableist standards of beauty, and we welcome you because you want to be here. No matter the state of your skin, where you come from, or how you identify yourself, we want you to feel seen and to support you in your best healing and well-being. We want you to have fun with and feel good about your skin care. We are always open to feedback about how we can better serve you.

A portion of all of the sales of Pink Light products goes directly to fund projects focused on herbal, esthetics, and business education & opportunities for Black and Indigenous womxn.

At Pink Light, beauty is synonymous with health and it’s our intention to endow the skin with both, naturally, from the inside-out. Each herbal luxury is 100% natural and handcrafted with the highest quality organic botanicals, essential oils and specific ingredients that nourish and support the skin’s own reparative, youth-giving abilities.

FAQ

OUR PRODUCTS

WHY NATURAL AND ORGANIC PRODUCTS?

The same as it's important to consider the quality of the foods we eat, it's also important to consider the quality of the ingredients we put on our skin. Our skin is a large organ of absorption, and toxic ingredients applied topically can affect our health internally and externally. There are many links to common skin care ingredients with cancer and other disease.

I also love the results I get with natural, organic ingredients. My practice is about creating and maintaining skin health and nourishment. Healthy skin is beautiful skin, and I believe in feeding your skin ingredients with a high vibration. We use organic and wild-crafted ingredients when possible, and make many of our herbal extracts in-house with whole plant material.

WHAT IS THE MAGICAL ELEMENT OF PINK LIGHT ALL ABOUT?

I believe that true beauty is held in the mystery of nature and the spiritual world, or magic. The more connected we are to these things, the more we can radiate beauty. I infuse my products with energetic essences of flowers and gemstones to help connect people to more magical realms of possibility. In my practice, I try to maintain a connection to the cycles of nature and stay attuned to the energy of the moment. I draw inspiration from learning about and working with the spirits of my ancestors. I also provide a sense of grounding and healing during services through the use of breath and meditation.

WHAT DOES THE NAME PINK LIGHT MEAN?

The Pink Light name is inspired by the pink light in the sky during sunrise and sunset, which I think is one of the most healing things in the world!

WHICH PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS ARE RIGHT FOR ME?

Most Pink Light products are suitable for all skin types, but specifics are listed with each product on the website. If you still have questions about what’s right for you after browsing the products and information, please fill out our Product Consultation form for feedback.

ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC?

Pink Light finished products are not Certified Organic, but most of the ingredients are. We source USDA Certified Organic ingredients whenever possible.

WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR INGREDIENTS?

Many of our plants are sourced from nearby farms, which are used to create extracts in-house. Some of our oils are sourced from small farm operations too. We seek some ingredients from reputable companies that can provide quality and Certified Organic, pesticide free, or ethically wildcrafted plant material, extracts, oils, and essential oils. We also rely on wholesale companies that provide quality, consistent preservatives and actives. We continue to strive to find great sources for ingredients, which will be ever evolving.

DO YOU HAVE FREE SAMPLES AVAILABLE?

We include one free sample when you order products online. You can also purchase samples in the online store. Please note that samples of any product can only be purchased once.

ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS GLUTEN-FREE?

None of our ingredients contain gluten, yet the products are not certified to be gluten-free.

ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS VEGAN?

Most Pink Light products are vegan, but some contain silk peptides, pearl, and yogurt extract. These products are Crystal Silk Cleanser, Coconut Pearl Powder, and Midnight Dew.

ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS HYPOALLERGENIC?

Pink Light products work very well with sensitive skin, but they do contain plant material and essential oils, which may cause allergies in certain people.

ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS NON-COMEDOGENIC?

No ingredient used in Pink Light products rates above a 2 on the comedogenic rating scale (which is 0-5, 5 being highest), and the majority of ingredients rate as a 0 or 1. We use Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil to name a few oils that are sometimes graded a 2. 2 means that it may cause clogging for some people, but mostly not in our experience.

ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS TESTED ON ANIMALS?

No.

WHAT PRESERVATIVE ARE USED IN PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS?

In some products where hydrosols and water-based ingredients are present, we use a natural preservatives such as Lactobacillus and Potassium Sorbate and which inhibit the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and molds.

HOW LONG WILL MY PRODUCTS STAY FRESH AND WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE THEM?

Products have a shelf life of 9-18 months from production date, depending on the product. A date on the bottom of the bottle notes the best-used-by date. Products have best efficacy when used within 6 months of opening. These products are delicate and are made to be used and enjoyed regularly and generously, rather than to sit on a shelf. They should always be stored in cool, dry places out of direct sunlight. Refrigeration can extend shelf life, but is not necessary.

WHAT TYPE OF VITAMIN C DO YOU USE IN THE CRYSTAL FACIAL TONIC AND WHAT PERCENTAGE?

In the Crystal Facial Tonic we use Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate which is a very stable, oil-soluble Vitamin C ester. It is used in a concentration of 2%. You may have read that Vitamin C serums should be a minimum of 10% Vitamin C, but that is when L-ascorbic acid is being used. With this Vitamin C ester, 2% is an effective amount. And remember, this product is a tonic, designed to create long-term effects through daily use.

CAN MEN USE PINK LIGHT?

Yes, of course!

WHERE ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS MADE?

Pink Light products are made by hand at our studio in New Mexico.

DO YOU HAVE A SUNSCREEN?

We do not sell our own sunscreen, but we do sell a wonderful zinc-based one by Honua Skin Care in our online shop.

DO PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS CONTAIN SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCE?

No.

I HAVE ROSACEA, WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND?

There are many different reasons why an individual may have rosacea, and it is important to explore diet and stressors that cause flare-ups. Protecting skin from sun with a zinc-based sunscreen is also imperative. The Crystal Rose Elixir and Rose Petal Enzyme Mask are the top products I would recommend for calming Rosacea and fighting demodex mites. But all of the products are gentle enough to be used on flaring skin.

I AM GOING THROUGH CHEMOTHERAPY, CAN I USE PINK LIGHT?

Unless you have become sensitive to essential oils, most products would be safe and comforting during chemotherapy. The exceptions would be Coconut Pearl Powder, Rose Petal Enzyme Masque, and Clear Horizon Serum, as they could all be too exfoliating.

ARE PINK LIGHT PRODUCTS SAFE DURING PREGNANCY?

Clear Horizon Cleansing Oil contains Clary Sage essential oil, an emmenagogue which can promote menstrual bleeding. It is present in a small amount, and not likely to cause any issues, but you may want to stop using this product during early stages of pregnancy. All other products contain ingredients generally considered safe to use during pregnancy.

CAN I RETURN MY PRODUCTS?

We are a very small company, and we cannot accommodate returns or exchanges. However, please contact us at hello@pink-light.com if your product arrives compromised or damaged, and we can make it right. If you are unsure about a product, consider purchasing a sample first.
