I can’t wait to share about Cultivate Apothecary – true ‘farm to skin’ luxury botanical skincare. When it comes to organic clean beauty – this is the motherlode. Thoughtfully and soulfully crafted and created by Jill Rowe and Matthew Benson on their epic, sustainable farm in upstate NY, Stonegate Farm – from medicinal and culinary herbs and all organic, with no chemical fertilizers or pesticides in practice.
Each bespoke formula takes months to complete – from seed to cultivation, harvest, and creation. The essence of slow beauty and ritual in every bottle. Even the soil at Stonegate is regularly replenished with local compost, minerals and low-impact cultivation.
I have never smelled anything like what is in these bottles (also works of art).
Take a peek at a couple of these luxurious serums. I put a couple of drops in my palm, rubbed them together and when I patted my face with them, it felt like I was putting some kind of botanical ART on my face. My skin thanked me with the most radiant glow. I plan on using these with zero makeup, daily. Day to night.
