“The origin of skin essentials” – TOSé Apothecary – is an artisan apothecary that creates 100% natural, aromatic and botanically active skincare for holistic living. Their mission is to inspire people to embrace the power and purity of nature in its simplest form, by providing a skincare range that can be trusted for piousness, quality and nobility.
“I have such a huge love for nature, so it’s very important that my products are cruelty free. We never test on animals and we’d never ever source from any suppliers who do,” says Founder and Formulator, Abha Sharma in our recent interview with her. “I think that natural ingredients are far more superior to anything that’s artificial; they have long-term health benefits in terms of people generally feeling a lot better in themselves, and over a period of time it can help with things like immunity, as well as helping the body get rid of toxins.”
TOSé Apothecary backs their passion for holistic skincare with the knowledge and science of high performance botanical ingredients. Handcrafted in small batches, their products retain freshness, and the vitality of their active ingredients provides you with a daily dose of skin essential nutrients.
Nature provides much of what we need to care for our skin in the form of natural ingredients, including the luxurious essential oils and plant essences that TOSé Apothecary use. Their carrier oils are extracted from fruits, grains and seeds and they choose unrefined, cold pressed oils for their formulations to provide better nutrient benefits for our skin. “Although unrefined oils and butters are stronger in colour and scent than refined oils, which make them a little trickier to work with, we believe that the extra effort is well worth it,” says Abha.
Their formulations have even gone on to become multi-award winning. Their French Clay & Lemongrass Detoxifying body scrub won the Editor’s Choice Award in the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2017 and it was also recently awarded Silver in the Natural Bath & Body category in the Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards 2017.
