When I look around me, I see a failing skin care industry - acne, congested bumpy skin, enlarged pores, broken capillaries, redness, roughness, and premature aging are everywhere. We’ve just learned to accept bad skin as the norm in North America. Do you think it could have anything to do with the petroleum-based skin care products we are using? I happen to think so. Our bodies do not respond well to ingesting synthetics, we know this about processed food. We seem to forget that our skin is the largest organ of our body and works on the same level as the rest of our cells. To have the most smooth, firm, and even-toned skin possible, you need to NOURISH it with botanicals. Plants have vitamins, antioxidants, fatty acids and a multitude of other rejuvenating components.
I developed the Cocoon Apothecary skin care line over the course of 10 years. It is my passion to work with ingredients such as plant oils, waters, butters and extracts to create perfect synergies for your skin. I’m an old-school apothecary, taking inspiration from the pre-petroleum age of botanical beauty and modern day access to ingredients from all over the world.
