Apis Apotheca


The Intention

Like a sweet lullaby for your skin, Honey Mallow is crafted with some of the most gentle, nurturing botanicals like elderflower, marshmallow, rose, and comfrey infused into local, organic sunflower seed oil. With the consistency of a gel-oil, this balm's base of humectant, healing raw local honey helps keep skin hydrated throughout the day and is complemented by unbleached local beeswax for extra nourishment. This replenishing nectar whip was brought to life to calm highly reactive skin and rebuild it while protecting it from the elements. It is simple, decadent, and offers up the healing properties of the flowers, bees, roots, and leaves. 


The Ingredients

Organic + local sunflower seed oil (Helianthus annuus), raw Hudson Valley honey, proprietary extracts of marshmallow root (althea officinalis)*, beach rose (rosa rugosa)*, comfrey leaf (symphytum officinale)*, elderflower (sambucus nigra)*, unbleached local beeswax 

*Organically grown on Apis Apotheca's New York medicinal herb farm

The Ritual

Works best as the last step of a regimen, smoothed on damp, cleansed skin and allowed to sink in for a few minutes before applying makeup or other treatments. Spritz with hydrosol/toner after applying to ensure fullest hydration and penetration.

The Apis Apotheca Story
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.
