Apis Apotheca Alchemist
Alchemist is a hybrid of regenerative, vibrant hydrosols, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), and N-acetyl glucosamine. Affectionately described as a "salad for your face", this hydrating and soothing facial mist helps balance the skin barrier and prepare the skin for other products. This mist is great for use throughout the day to refresh the skin if needed and for setting makeup too!
This is a multitasker if there ever was one: nourishes, regenerates, moisturizes— and most importantly, helps your skin re-learn how to protect itself naturally.
The modern world is tough on our skin, and increasingly the discussion around preventing the vicious cycle of damaged, acne prone skin has centered around repairing barrier function. What this means is giving your skin the building blocks it needs to protect and repair itself— because our skin is an incredibly intelligent work of art designed to heal from even severe damage, given the proper nourishment. AlcheMist is a unique hybrid of old and new knowledge. Aviva grows high potency healing herbs on her farm and distills them on-site into regenerative, vibrant hydrosols using ancient distillation technology going back well before the 10th century. She then combines these unique essential waters with the scientifically proven ingredients Niacinamide (vit b3) and N-acetyl glucosamine, an amino acid to keep your skin producing Natural Moisturizing Factor and hyaluronic acid on its own, while gently encouraging exfoliation to keep skin free of built up oil and debris that can cause breakouts.
- Suggested Use: Mist face after cleansing. Mist throughout the day if your skin feels dull or dry and to prevent future breakouts. Or even mist post makeup application to set makeup.
- Ingredients: Organic hydrosols that may include the following: wild rose, yarrow, chamomile, calendula, gotu kola, sage, lavender, rose scented bergamot, green myrtle, tulsi, pine, birch; Niacinamide, N-acetyl Glucosamine
- About the maker: Aviva Skye Tilson, the creator, comes from a background in farming and is a certified community herbalist. She has her own farm in Germantown where she grows most of the products used for infusions and distillations. Her slogan is "farm to face skincare". If she does not grow the product herself, she strives to use local producers when ever possible and her products are labeled accordingly.
