Something that is so important for brands to show is that they have a heart. A brand that shows that they stand for something, whether it be jobs for locals, political activism, or simply showing that they donate to a good cause is more than a notch higher in my book. Having a company show that they care about something more than just a profit shows me that I’m investing my money in a worthwhile company. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t like giving big corporations, that couldn’t care less about the rest of the world, my money.
Enter FARMACY. This brand encompasses everything good that I like to see in a company, and their products are effective.
One major thing that I love is that all of the products are formulated using a particular flower called echinacea purpurea. Even better, this specific breed of echinacea purpurea is patented by FARMACY. It has the highest levels of cichoric acid ever discovered. According to different studies, cichoric acid helps There are two things that are so great about this particular flower: it is inherently anti-aging and it is anti-inflammatory. These two things combined give me such a happy feeling. Not many skincare brand can claim both of these things at the same time.
I have pretty sensitive skin -in the sense of breakouts-, but I really want to use products that have anti-aging properties to start preventing all of the typical signs of aging. The fact that echinacea is anti-inflammatory and anti-aging means that every single product in their line will be a preventative for aging as well as soothing.
Another beautiful thing about Farmacy is that all of their products are natural. There are no harsh chemicals like sulfates or preservatives like parabens in their products. Their cleansers – for this reason – are oil or powder based. Their mask and moisturizers have honey and other antibacterial ingredients to keep them from spoiling. Overall, this natural brand has captured my natural heart.
Below are a few of my favorite products of theirs:
- Honey Potion Mask – It’s slightly warming, but gorgeously hydrating.
- New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains – It soothes my redness almost instantly whil gently exfoliating.
- Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist & Setting Spray – It hydrates and refreshes, and it smells a bit like peppermint!
Of course, in saving the best part for last, the final topic about Farmacy I’ll mention will be their philanthropy.
The best part about Farmacy is that they are committed to preserve local farms. Situated in upstate New York, the founders were able to see that the time for local farmers was coming to and end. To help mitigate this, the founders took it upon themselves to farm exclusively in upstate New York, employing local farmers and local gardeners to tend the farms as well. They are helping to bring back jobs for manual laborers and farmers in a very urban area of the country.
In addition to caring about their community’s people, they also care about our world’s environment. Their new #HONEYSAVIOR campaign donates proceeds of the sales of their honey products to City Growers to provide education to the public about the importance of bees.
Overall, Farmacy is such a beautiful company. They are a natural brand, they care about the locals to their area, and they product products that are effective.
