SOCO Botanicals is a Cruelty free, eco luxury beauty & skin care company based in Austin, TX that has an emphasis on 4 pillars: 1. Simplified organic skin care with fewer products and no layering: we don’t have gel based facial serums, spray toners, night creams, day creams, or eye creams- instead we believe just one layer for your daily moisturizer is all you need to replace all other layers. 2. Our moisturizer is an oil based moisturizer/ serum in one bottle (no cream). 3. Our preservatives are nontoxic: we go the extra mile of research and testing to make sure our products are effectively preserved without harmful chemicals. 4. Nutrient Rich: think of our skin care products as nutrition for your skin. Each product is fully packed with nutrition your skin needs and no empty fillers, offering you the best organic skin care products on the market.
SOCO Botanicals is based in the heart of Austin, Texas and has been featured in Austin Monthly Magazine, Tribeza, Bustle.com, and The Scout Guide.
The SOCO Botanicals system is designed for all of our 3 skin care products (Symphony, Citrus Gem & Black Lava Scrub) to work synergistically for the best results. We recommend that you cleanse your skin twice daily with our Citrus Gem Cleanser. This cleanser is hydrating with hyaluronic acid and cucumber blend, and exfoliating with natural fruit acids and enzymes, and green tea which tightens skin tone. It rinses off clean, leaving your skin hydrated. Leave it on as a mask for a few minutes before rinsing, for more hydration and a light enzyme peel. Then, 4 times a week use the Lava Scrub as an alternative cleanser. The scrub doubles as a mask, so you can leave it on 10-20 minutes for an extra skin detox mask. Then moisturize your skin twice a day with SOCO Symphony, or Symphony Men. The facial cleanser and scrub hydrate and exfoliate your skin gently, so when you use the Symphony, the oil will lock in the hydration, absorb deeply and deliver the nutrients to the deeper layers of your skin.
Our face oils are orange because of the presence of Sea Buckthorn Oil and Rosehip Oil which are both red. These 2 oils are 2 of the top nutritional oils for face skin, delivering natural Vitamin C and A for skin cell renewal. If you ever come across a skin care oil that claims to have these 2 important ingredients but isn’t orange, we caution you that the percentage is not high enough to deliver results. Most competitor facial oils are a watery yellow color, indicating a lack of these ingredients. All face oils that have these ingredients in a high percentage will have a rich color. That is why Symphony anti aging oil is the most effective, best anti aging face oil on the market, because our ingredients are super concentrated - not just a keyword on a label for marketing purposes.
Our SOCO Symphony and Symphony Men organic face oil blends are our moisturizers. We don’t sell cream, because cream contains waxes, fillers and preservatives that are harmful for the skin. Our face oil is formulated to be a complete moisturizer so you don’t need any other layers.
We believe in restoring your skin’s health with powerful, anti-aging nutrients at a super high concentrated level. We don’t water down our products and then try to sell you a system of 5 different layers. No, we put all the vitamins and nutrients into fewer products, so you can experience luxurious, effective, nutritionally potent skin care in fewer steps.
We offer 30 day money back guarantee. We also offer free shipping one way for orders over $30, so your only risk is that you pay for return shipping to send products back to us.
Yes, all of our ingredients are nontoxic, phthalate free, paraben free, and free of all questionable ingredients that have been linked to cancer and other health problems. Parabens are chemical preservatives that are estrogenic and disruptive hormone function. Estrogenic chemicals mimic naturally occurring hormone estrogen, and exposure to external estrogens has been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer. Parabens are preservatives that are known to disrupt hormones, harm fertility and reproductive organs, increase the risk of cancer and cause skin irritation. We thoroughly research our ingredients for safety, efficacy and also use high integrity sources.
SOCO Botanicals is made right here in Texas, in an FDA approved manufacturing facility. We have our own product development team and own all of our unique formulas. No other company sells our products under a different brand name - they are exclusively SOCO Botanicals skin care products.
We do not make any specific claims as to individual results, or how long it takes to get results, because results vary from person to person. SOCO Symphony Anti Aging Elixir Oil is sold as an all in one super nutrient moisturizer, not a skin lightening product. However, there are several ingredients in our SOCO Symphony & Symphony Men that have been studied and have shown to disperse melanin in the skin and help to make skin tone appear more even. Here are a few ingredients that have promising clinical results: 1. Red Raspberry Seed Oil: This oil has high natural sun protection of 28-50 SPF. Red Raspberry Seed Oil also is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, which protect the skin from damage at the cellular level. 2. Pomegranate Seed Oil: Pomegranate contains ellagic acid, a polyphenol found in pomegranates, which in clinical studies has shown to have skin lightening properties comparable to hydroquinone, reducing sun spots effectively. It also has been clinically proven to inhibit the growth of skin tumors. 3. Coenzyme Q10: The International Journal of Cosmetic Science published a study recently that showed that CoQ10 helped to reduce melasma and hyperpigmentation. Researchers found that CoQ10 could reduce melanin content in skin cells, so it could potentially be used to reduce skin discoloration due to sun exposure. Topical CoQ10 is quickly absorbed right into the skin where the sun spots need it the most.
SOCO Botanicals is a cruelty free beauty company, has never and will never test on animals. We do not purchase ingredients that have been tested on animals either.
SOCO Botanicals is both vegan gluten free, with the exception of the lip balms which contain organic beeswax. Beeswax is considered to be vegetarian but not vegan.
SOCO Black Lava Scrub is an activated charcoal facial exfoliant, with a creamy, hydrating texture. It is safe to exfoliate daily, but we believe 4 times a week is enough exfoliation, unless you have a specific problem like acne or rough patches, in which it would help to use it daily.
All of the oils in our products are non-comedogenic, meaning that they absorb and do not clog pores. Creams contain emulsifying waxes, fillers, gums and preservatives that can clog pores, so that is one of the benefits of switching to an oil based moisturizer- most people report clearer skin and smaller pores in just a few weeks.
Sea Buckthorn Oil and Rosehip Oil are very high in Vitamin C, so if you are using our Symphony Anti Aging Elixir Oil or Symphony Men face oil, you do not need to keep using a gel based Vitamin C serum. In addition, those gel based products are another layer that can clog your pores, which we do not recommend.
Yes, SOCO Symphony Anti Aging Oil is effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and around the eyes, and it is effective and gentle enough to replace your eye cream.
Many of our female customers report that the Symphony face oil helps to help makeup go on more smoothly. Other customers report that they wear less makeup as their skin tone and texture is improved. I am a fan of a fresh clean skin look, which appears more glowing and healthy, so our goal is to help your skin improve and lessen the need for makeup.
No other layers, eye cream, day cream, night cream, serum or any other gels or spray toners are necessary when you use SOCO Symphony or Symphony Men. Our Symphony serum oil is a complete moisturizer in one bottle. However, it is not going to hurt you skin to use our Symphony as a serum oil under another face cream, and some people use it this way.
The Symphony blend is exactly the same, except for the essential oils in it. SOCO Symphony features essential oils for beauty: Neroli, Helichrysum, and Ylang Ylang, which have floral notes. Symphony Men contains essential oils of Frankincense and Sandalwood, which also are amazing for skin, but have a more masculine scent.

This is the best serum I've ever purchased, and I highly recommend it if you have dry skin. Wouldn’t be without it!! My skin is becoming drier as I age and effective moisturizers are hard to find. This serum absorbs extremely well into my dry skin and keeps my face feeling nice and moisturized, not oily. I use it twice daily and always have a backup so I don't run out! If you need moisture to keep you glowing, this one's for you!!!
Try SOCO Organic Anti Aging Oil Serum, you’ll love it! The SOCO Organic Anti Aging Oil Serum is a fantastic product! The oil penetrates very quickly, hydrates and retexurizes face and neck.It truly is the only product needed. I’m more than satisfied with it and have recommended it to many friends all of which are equally pleased! I’m on my third bottle and will continue to purchase it.
A wonderful moisturizer! I was initially skeptical about using an oil for a facial moisturizer, but decided to try it: the reviews were favorable and I am a big fan of essential oils. What a wonderful surprise! I have been using the product for two months and love it. The oil absorbs quickly with no greasy feeling and has made my skin soft, and younger feeling and looking. I now recommend this to friends, family and coworkers. Thank you for such a healthy and effective product.
Fantastic Product! This serum is a true game changer. I love the scent and consistency. My skin literally drinks this stuff in. I love it so much I wake up and look forward to using it. My skin has a rosy glow and my fine lines and discoloration are improving. I highly recommend and will keep this product in my routine forever!
