FLOWER SAP // HYDRATION HARMONIZER
Flower Sap brings together two of our true loves: roses and the ocean. These essences are cradled by the strong arms of a plant that is so difficult to source that Apis Apotheca had to grow it themselves. As a result, this product took 2 full years to bring into existence because of the cycle of seeding, tending, and waiting for the roots of gromwell to be ready to harvest.
The synergy of gromwell, rose, and Apis’ proprietary Maine-harvested seaweed extract work to help your skin maintain its own ideal hydration levels day and night. Harmonizing and tuning into your skin’s individual needs, this botanical powerhouse of land and sea helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier and reduce trans-epidermal water loss all while attracting a gentle trickle of water molecules to the skin. A nutrient-rich botanical bounty that packs serious results. Oh, the power of nature.
Rose flower water (Rosa Damascena), aloe vera, local + organic sunflower seed oil (helianthus annuus), proprietary extracts of oarweed (laminaria digitata), winged kelp (alaria esculenta), gromwell (Lithospermum erythrorhizon), (vegetable based) glycerin, ceteareth-6 Olivate, aspen bark extract (Populus tremuloides), xanthan gum
With a feather-light application, it is wonderful as a light lotion on its own or combined with an oil or balm of choice for richer moisture. Always apply to clean, slightly damp skin. 3-5 drops is all that is needed.
Founded and run by farmers, herbalists, and educators who feel a duty to uphold traditions of equitable access to safe herbal medicine and knowledge, Apis Apotheca creations are brought to life by Aviva Skye Tilson, who comes from a farming background and is a certified community herbalist. Aviva has spent a decade healing herself through working with plants and animals, and has always loved skincare. The Apis Apotheca line represents her combined years of field experience, academic research, and endless experimentation.
The Apis Apotheca team runs a medicinal herb farm in New York’s stunning Hudson Valley, high on a hill facing the Catskill Mountains, with deep, mineral-rich, loamy soil that supports trillions of healthy micro-organisms in balance. This healthy soil grows healthy plants, 100% organically. They grow 98% of the plants used in their formulas to ensure they are fresh, potent, and properly preserved for ever batch of products. And their lab is steps away from their farm fields, which enables them to capture the potency of the plants they grow to the fullest, as well as to experiment to their hearts content whenever they have a lightbulb moment out in the field! The Apis Apotheca lab is also solar powered and they recycle everything that can be recycled, and compost absolutely everything that can be composted — and that compost goes right back on their fields to help grow more gorgeous plants. Full circle.
