I love skin care products but I really only want to use the most natural, animal-friendly brands and so when I stumbled upon Farmacy, I wanted to give them a try. If you are like me, you will love them for never testing on animals and being free of parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, sulphates and artificial colouring. In fact, the bottle of Skin Dew contains a note that because the colour is natural, it may change over time, without altering the quality of the product. The setting spray contains a unique ingredient called Echinacea Purpurea, GreenEnvy. It contains the highest known concentration of the phytochemical Cichoric Acid, a potent natural antioxidant which helps protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen. Cichoric Acid also normalizes the skin pigmentation process to promote a more evenly toned complexion.
Farmacy has chosen to cultivate the plant in upstate New York. They are creating jobs and changing lives in their local community. The scientists and lab behind Farmacy are experts in cosmetic formulation and innovative research, and seek out nature’s most novel yet effective ingredients. The main ingredient is transported only two hours to the lab, where it undergoes a cold pressing process, similar to cold pressed juices, leaving the main benefits intact. Skin Dew i is a revolutionary dual-action essence mist that combines the latest in beauty technology with farm fresh ingredients to help tone your skin and replenish radiance by moisturizing, while also setting your makeup. It contains antioxidants to protect and heal the skin. It feels lovely going on and once it sets.
The packaging on this Farmacy Skin Dew spray is absolutely lovely! So detailed and amazing. I love their brand story being included on the inside of the box, it is a little surprise that you could almost miss if you don’t fully open the box the bottle comes in. The bottle itself is glass with a silver lid, again very high quality with little details that make a big difference in terms of the impression of the brand. It is a pump spray bottle as opposed to a continuous spray model. The mist itself, smells absolutely amazing, like a fresh herb garden after the rain. This comes from the addition of bergamot, peppermint, and rosemary. It is quite refreshing and I am looking forward to using it on a hot day when I want to cool down after a walk with the dog, or after sitting out by the pool all day.
