Apis Apotheca Color Coins
Pronounced Kee-rah, this shade is a sophisticated, boss-lady hue. On the lips it gives a just-bitten flush, on the cheeks an auburn glow. Italian wine and terra cotta pots. Earth signs delight, this blend is grounded and nourished. Perfect for day or night.
Color Coins are infused with skin-healing flowers organically grown on Aviva's farm. They are moisturizing and build-able, offering a color range from subtle to dynamic depending on how you choose to layer.
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.
