Teardrop is described as a phytocosmetic – or plant-based cosmetics ­– lab that enables users to create all-natural cosmetics using steam distillation. The kit lets users create a herbal water by placing plants, herbs or rose petals inside its distillation system. The water can then be used as a base for other cosmetics. The Teardrop kit comes complete with jars, labels and recipes as well as information on the health properties of different plants, making it easy for amateurs to create their own make-up concoctions.

We profiled a similar product in 2013, The Alchemist’s Dressing Table, in our Innovate section. For more on the rise of at-home beauty, read our Refined Remedy design direction.
