Clark’s Botanicals
Highly effective products and happy customers is how Clarks Botanicals became a word-of-mouth sensation. The company’s founder, Francesco Clark suffered a spinal cord injury in 2002 and found that medications (prescribed and over-the-counter), had no effect on his skin. That’s when Francesco and his father developed botanically-based formulas that were effective.

Price: $45.00 for Soothing Herbal Face Wash
