Brand Story

Founder: Leyna Allred | California
URB APOTHECARY (pronounced "herb") sprang out of a passion project and has blossomed into Leyna's vision for bringing the healing power of plants into daily beauty and grooming rituals, reconnecting individuals to their own natural beauty and while being mindful of their environmental impact. Every product is intentionally made in her studio in Sacramento, CA and she places the highest importance on sourcing materials from only the purest quality fair-trade, organic, and local suppliers, ensuring that each product is not only improving the life of the customer but also being socioeconomically conscious.

Ritual

Use 1-2 times per week. Mix 1 tsp of powder with approximately 1 tsp of water or hydrosol, adding more if needed to achieve a smooth, batter-like texture. Spread on your face for 5-10 minutes before removing with warm water and a washcloth. Follow with toning mist and moisturizer. Note: redness is normal due to increased blood flow, and will dissipate in about 30 minutes.

Ingredients

MATCHA GREEN TEA's potent antioxidant properties make it incredibly helpful in reducing inflammation and evening skin tone. The antioxidants may also be helpful for reducing acne and increasing skin elasticity.

GREEN PAPAYA contains papain, a proteolytic enzyme, that gently digests the protein bonds that link dead skin cells to the surface of new skin. Using fruit enzymes results in a gentle exfoliation that leaves the skin smooth and supple.

YARROW has been used for centuries for healing wounds. Its main constituents, flavonoids and salicylic acid, work as a tonic and stimulant to soften and soothe the skin. It is a natural astringent that shrinks the skin and promotes skin healing

GERANIUM ESSENTIAL OIL helps balance sebum production, treat acne, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety, and balance hormones.

FRENCH GREEN CLAY has enormous absorbent powers due to the constitution of its micro molecules. It literally “drinks” oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin. French Green clay is great for helping to clear occasional skin blemishes. Green clay owes its coloration to two very important factors: iron oxide and decomposed plant matter.

RHASSOUL CLAY nourishes the skin with its high silica, magnesium, and sodium content while also encouraging skin regeneration through gentle exfoliation, reducing and balancing sebum production, and tightening pores. It even has the ability to increase the elasticity of the skin, even skin tone, reduce skin dryness, and helps clear up blackheads and blemishes.

"I have used powder masks before and thought they were wonderful - until I used this one. There is a visible difference in the texture of my skin as soon as I remove the mask and, unlike after I use the other products, I find that my skin remains softer and smoother for a much longer period of time - a few days! I would definitely recommend this prRead more about review stating Smooths and softens skin creating a visible difference that lasts. -- Kimberly G"
