What began as the discovery of a “superhero plant” growing in upstate New York is now a skincare line. That plant, Echinacea GreenEnvy™, is now patented and used exclusively by Farmacy Beauty. The Echinacea GreenEnvy™ root is said to have 300% more antioxidants than the Echinacea plant we’re used to hearing about. Yes. 300%.
To stay true to its mission to provide a product that is sustainable and safe for the environment, Farmacy Beauty works with two local farms (one in Pennsylvania and the other in the Catskills) to cultivate Echinacea GreenEnvy™. Doing so helps to maintain the potency and fidelity of their super ingredient. To assist this process, Farmacy uses honey cultivated by the “very important bees” (aka VIB’s) who pollinate the Echinacea GreenEnvy™ flowers.
Farmacy Beauty states they are serious about creating a skincare line that is safe and nontoxic. To do this, they have banned 1388 ingredients to date. Guiding them in their quest “to (keep) our hands, conscience, and formulas clean,” are some foundational principles that include utilizing:
- No skin-sensitizing synthetic preservatives
- No irritating synthetic fragrances
- No harmful chemical sun screens
- No crude oil byproducts
- No irritating foaming agents & emulsifiers
- No testing on animals
- Only real, whole, non-GMO ingredients
- Thoughts for all skin types, to provide safe skincare for all
- One-of-a-kind ingredients straight from the source
- The mindset to never stop improving!
With over twenty unique products, Farmacy Beauty offers cleansers, moisturizers, masks, lip care, and items designed to treat specific concerns such as aging or dry skin.
On the Farmacy Beauty Web site you will find a link to their blog which gives data about their products and others the brand endorses. The site also insists that Farmacy Beauty, with the use of Echinacea GreenEnvy™ root and Echinacea GreenEnvy™ infused honey, promises each buyer “farm-to-face” natural products. Combining nature’s greatness with the intelligence of science, Farmacy Beauty has set out to create inventions that are healing, clean, and environmentally thoughtful.
