Apis Apotheca Flower Sap

$52.00

This hydrating and calming hydration harmonizer strengthens the skin, infusing it with an extra layer of moisture, while balancing and priming the skin for your favorite moisturizer, oil, or makeup. We've also noticed a reduction in acne while using this product as the first step in our skincare routine (after misting of course!).

Flower Sap brings together two of our true loves—roses and the ocean. These essences are cradled by the strong arms of a plant that is so difficult to source that Aviva had to grow the plants herself, meaning this product took 2 full years to bring to existence because of the cycle of seeding, tending, and waiting for the roots of Gromwell (Lithospermum Erythrorhizon) to be ready for us. The synergy of gromwell, rose, and our proprietary Maine harvested seaweed extract work to help your skin maintain its own ideal hydration levels day or night. This is different for everyone, hence the word ‘Harmonizer’. We don’t want you to be so over-hydrated that you feel sticky, but we still need to have that juicy silky bounce all day long. Proper skin hydration means less dehydration-related blackheads and acne, more skin resistance to stress and hormonal changes, and of course more graceful aging. The plants in this formula strengthen our skin’s natural barrier and reduce trans-epidermal water loss all while attracting a gentle trickle of water molecules to the skin. We didn’t want to use synthetic, unsustainable water-trapping ingredients so common nowadays, but also didn’t want to sacrifice serious results— and we didn’t have to. We hope you love this nutrient rich sap as much as we do.

Who the product is for: Almost anyone! Specifically designed for those with sensitive and/or acne prone skin, the products are also great for those with aging/mature skin. Extremely hydrating and chock full of anti-aging antioxidants. Anti-oxidants help to neutralize free radicals and combat environmental pollution, which otherwise accelerates the aging process and may sensitize the skin. This line is totally focused on healing and pampering the skin.

  • Use: With a feather-light application, it is wonderful as a light lotion on its own or combined with an oil or balm of choice for richer moisture. Always apply to clean, slightly damp skin. 3-5 drops is all that is needed.
  • Ingredients: Rosa Damascena flower water, aloe vera, helianthus annuus seed oil, proprietary extracts of laminaria digitata, alaria esculenta, Lithospermum Erythrorhizon, (vegetable based) glycerin, ceteareth-6 Olivate, Populus Tremuloides extract, xanthan gum
  • 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.
Apis Apotheca is a Hudson Valley local organic skincare brand founded by farmers, herbalists and educators who feel a duty to uphold equitable access to safe herbal medicine and knowledge. Their botanically-infused product line, of which 98% of the plant-based ingredients are hand-grown by the company itself, can be used by all skin types and is designed to especially target an unbalanced skin microbiome, excess sebum oxidation, irregular desquamation, chronic inflammation and inefficient wound healing.
