With alkanet root infused in sunflower oil to provide this balm with its beautiful ruby red botanical pigment, cocoa butter to provide antioxidants and deep hydration, kaolin clay to stimulate blood flow to skin and promote a brightened even skin tone, palmarosa to provide hydration and balance, and ylang ylang to reduce inflammation and improve mood with its uplifting scent.

Softly glide across lips and cheekbones as you wish and experience the decadence of this gentle rosy glow.

The URB APOTHECARY Story

Founded by Leyna Allred, URB APOTHECARY (pronounced “herb”) sprang out of a passion project and has blossomed into her vision for bringing the healing power of plants into daily beauty + grooming rituals and reconnecting individuals to their own natural beauty, all while being mindful of their environmental impact. 

Leyna grew up in rural Northern California and was perpetually digging in the mud, climbing trees, and imagining living off the land. With this penchant for natural living kindling, an interest in the medicinal qualities of plants was ignited and she bought every herbal book she could find, completely engrossed in the simple recipes for liver tonics, healing ointments, and cleansing teas. In 2013 she discovered the power of herbs and botanicals, simultaneously becoming aware of the toxic nature of the beauty industry. And, thus, the beginnings of URB APOTHECARY were born. 

Every product is intentionally made in her studio in Sacramento, CA, and she places the highest importance on sourcing as locally, organically, ethically, and as potent as possible. They source from many small herb farms not only throughout the US, but also right in their hometown of Sacramento, ensuring that each product is not only improving the life of the customer, but also being socioeconomically conscious. 

They also work incredibly hard to reduce their plastic footprint. Their current pumps and mist sprayers are about 80% aluminum, and the tubes used for the Lips Cheeks Botanical Tint are 100% cardboard with a food-grade wax lining and no plastic laminate on the outside. They pack retail orders with unbleached, recyclable kraft paper, corrugated cardboard padding, biodegradable packing peanuts, water-activated paper shipping tape, and eco-printed thank you cards. Wholesale orders are packed mostly with materials and boxes from supply orders.
