Introducing: PLANT Apothecary

I am so happy to introduce you to a new line of products called PLANT Apothecary. I have been watching their social media pages and coveting their products for a while now. I simply love their minimalist packaging and photos and they totally had me with product names like BE HAPPY and GET IT ON. I did a bit of research and found that this company's principles were in line with M+E's principles and so just had to carry them!!!

PLANT makes apothecary goods with a conscience. The Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based design studio, online shop and wholesale distributor was founded by Holly McWhorter and Bjarke Ballisager, a husband-and-wife team. Holly and Bjarke design and/or formulate all PLANT products either together or independently. They share a passion for environmental friendliness, natural beauty and grooming, social responsibility, Scandinavian modern lines and a good sense of humor.

PLANT Apothecary products are made with the help of adults with physical and mental disabilities in Brooklyn, New York. This gives disabled adults access to work training and paid work opportunities.

PLANT APOTHECARY nominated by REfinery29 as most innovative beauty products under $25Refinery29 recently nominated  PLANT's RICE AND CLEAN Gentle Facial Cleanser  as one of this year's most innovative beauty products. We agree it's a cleanser unlike any other you've ever tried.

 

 

 

 

PLANT APOTHECARY RICE AND CLEAN facial cleanser with rice bran

RICE AND CLEAN's star ingredient is rice bran, which has long been Japan’s secret to smooth, soft, clear skin (geishas traditionally used water left over from washing rice in the bath, for soft skin all over). It naturally contains gamma oryzanol, which has been shown in studies to both soften skin and protect it from UV light damage. Here it joins forces with soothing, antibacterial chamomile to make a gentle cleanser for all skin types.

 

It's so easy to use, just dip your moist fingers in the jar and scrub your face with the feathery powder. It contains no liquids so it's perfect for travelling.

 

PLANT APOTHECARY GET IT ON BODYWASH

GET IT ON Bodywash has organic essential oils of aphrodisiac sandalwood, ginger and cedar, for a sensual shower or bubble bath when it’s time to... well, get it on! 

 

PLANT APOTHECARY WAKE UP BODY WASH with rosemary and lemongrass with a cup of coffee

WAKE UP Bodywash is lightly scented with organic essential oils of rosemary and lemongrass, which aromatherapists have traditionally used to stimulate and revive the mind and body. Use it to give yourself a little boost whenever you need it, whether it’s morning, noon or night.

This product was also featured in a Garance Doré' blog called "WAKE UP! Without caffeine." 

 

PLANT APOTHECARY SUPER SOAK bath

 SUPER SOAK Organic Healing Bath combines purifying sea salt with two ancient remedies for both sore muscles and stuffy noses: organic mustard and organic eucalpytus essential oil. The mustard draws heat to the soaking area, increasing circulation to help wash away painful lactic acid buildup in your muscles. Eucalyptus is absorbed in tiny amounts through the skin, providing gentle pain relief, while its bracing aroma helps clear a stuffy nose. Perfect for after exercise, when you have a cold, or even when you’ve had just a long day on your feet.

 

We can't wait to hear what you think about this new line of products...can't wait to read your reviews!!!

 

À bientôt!
