What is malachite good for? Keys Soulcare collaborator Renée Snyder, M.D. breaks down why it’s the stone of transformation — and so much more.

Let’s talk about malachite.
If you’re not yet familiar with our Skin Transformation Cream, in which malachite is a featured ingredient, then you may not be too familiar with this vivid green stone. We spoke with Keys Soulcare consulting dermatologist Dr. Renée Snyder about a few reasons to get to know and love malachite as much as we do.
Its use dates back to ancient Egypt
“It’s known as the stone of transformation,” says Dr. Snyder. “In addition to its mystical cleansing and energy-renewing properties, malachite has been used for centuries to cleanse and purify the skin.”
Its mineral makeup is key
“This powerful little crystal is rich in copper, and therefore filled with anti-free radicals,” shares Dr. Snyder about the inherent properties that make it a natural purifier and protectant against environmental pollution, UV damage, and more.
It has double-duty skin benefits
Malachite doesn’t just fend off external damage. “It protects the skin while retaining moisture, too” says Snyder, who credits its presence with the glow-boosting, skin-soothing effects of our Skin Transformation Cream.
