A few weeks ago, I introduced you to the #OnTUWI Indie Beauty Expo (IBE) program I joined and you were thrown into seeing dozens of different recommended brands. Today, I am going to break down one of those IBE brands for you so you can learn more about them and understand why I am passionate about their products.
After struggling with allergies and eczema all her life, Province Apothecary founder Julie Clark began crafting natural, organic beauty products out of her kitchen. Despite her busy schedule as a costume designer and stylist, Julie found herself drawn to holistic skincare, using her time off to experiment with oils, waxes and herbs- all in pursuit of the perfect skin care regime.
In 2010 Julie began studying Aromatherapy, Holistic Health and Esthetics in Toronto. Here she formed the foundation of her skincare expertise, experimenting with raw materials and natural ingredients. For Julie, natural beauty goes beyond simply organic ingredients; natural beauty means a pledge to helping clients feel good in their own skin. “I gather so much inspiration from my clients, the weather, and the seasons,” says Julie, of her individually-tailored approach to skin care.
Julie’s facial treatments often include hand-blended masks using local produce and seasonally appropriate, farmer-friendly ingredients. While Province Apothecary has long outgrown the kitchen, Julie’s devotion to fresh, seasonal, and organic beauty continues. Now a certified holistic esthetician and aromatherapist, Julie remains committed to innovation, sustainability, and small-batch skin care of the highest quality. Her products are always free from steroids, hydrocortisone, parabens, alcohol, petroleum, synthetic fragrance, and toxic ingredients.
With a mission to create pure, effective products that benefit even the most sensitive complexions, Julie created one of my favorite products from Province Apothecary: the Pure Botanical Face Serum. This serum is a daily essential when your skin is lack-luster and thirsty. It absorbs easily into the skin to deliver essential phytonutrients that nourish, hydrate and firm. The powerful blend of plant oils effectively replenishes moisture without clogging pores, while smoothing the look of fine lines, preventing the signs of aging and promoting skin elasticity. Skin appears instantly radiant and is effectively protected from the elements and long-term damage, making it an ideal serum to be used both under make-up and on make-up free days.
