our story

freshness promise

We are built on our commitment to honor the integrity of each plant and raw ingredient lovingly and meticulously sourced for our formulas. For us, the making of every fresh micro-batch is a celebration of the land and farmer; a moment to give thanks as we fill each precious bottle and affix its “born-on” label.

Our hands and our hearts are involved every step of the way, from the moment our potent raw ingredients come through our studio doors to the second they leave, transformed into fresh, skin-loving goodness.

We are fastidious in our process and committed to the unparalleled quality and freshness of our uniquely transformative formulas. We are proud to be a direct-to-consumer artisanal skincare brand, choosing to bypass a retail presence in order to focus our efforts on blending, filling, and shipping our small batch products right to you at home, directly from our kitchen lab.

To honor the vitality of these treats, the nourishment that fills them, and the hands that made them, we encourage you to begin use upon delivery and enjoy within one year of opening.

Your skin desires to be fed each and every day with love and care.

Our sleek and substantial black glass bottles are visually stunning, but they also serve a vital purpose that goes far beyond aesthetic to serve an active vital purpose. The history and appreciation for the special protective qualities of Miron violet glass can be traced back to the heyday of ancient Egyptian civilization. Even then, valuable essences and healing natural products were kept in gold and violet glass containers. Miron violet glass works like a natural filter, blocking the complete spectrum of visible light while allowing a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A and infrared light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the aging processes that are initiated by visible light, thus lengthening the stability and potency of our collection, without the use of parabens and preservatives.

Our first priority is to honor, respect, and preserve the integrity of our prized ingredients. While this is true of every piece of the collection, it is particularly important to house any formula containing plant oils in glass. Plastic and oils are a volatile combination. Over time, plastic will degrade in the presence of oil and integrate into a formula, and ultimately into your skin and organs - there are a multitude of reasons why this should be avoided.

May first came across our unique glass in the mid-2000’s during the early stages of research and development for our collection. While seen with relative frequency in natural skincare today, at the time Miron glass was almost entirely reserved for keeping rare food products and medical marijuana fresh for long durations of time! We have many clients who keep our bottles after use to up-cycle for cut flowers, and our jars are fantastic for holding odds and ends both in the kitchen and in the bathroom. Q-tips, bobbypins, and cotton balls find themselves with a cozy, sexy home.
