Prickly Pear Elixir
With a trio of precious + potent powerhouse seed oils, this elixir is brimming with antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins that help to brighten dark spots, even hyperpigmentation, improve elasticity, and ease the appearance of wrinkles.
Cold-pressed organic prickly pear seed oil (comprising 95% of this blend) - grown and pressed in Arizona - is loaded with vitamins E and K, zinc, and linoleic + linolenic acids to help restore elasticity, brighten, tone, moisturize, and reduce dark undereye circles. Uniting with this wonder oil is rosehip seed to provide vitamins A and E, along with omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids and carotenoids that play a huge part in healing broken and damaged skin; as well as pomegranate seed to infuse skin with vitamin C, nourishment, and radiance. Essential oils of rose, clary sage, geranium, and helichrysum balance sebum production, encourage new cell growth, and combat pre-mature aging from environmental and oxidative damage.

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.
