The whole notion of farm to skin has been making waves in the world of skincare, with more and more upcoming brands choosing to source and include ingredients from their own farms. Brands such a Tata Harper, Bottega Organica and of course Farmacy Beauty are examples of skincare brands who farm and cultivate many of their ingredients used in their formulations. Farm to skin is a movement that is similar to the Farm to Table concept - where consumers want more knowledge about what they are buying, where it comes from and how it is grown and brands want to have more control over the quality and integrity of ingredients. Generally speaking, products that have the farm to skin concept usually have high concentrations of super-fresh extracts to achieve maximum potency.
Farmacy Beauty is a brand that has been on my radar for some time now and I feel it is a brand that has grown in popularity in 2016. So what sets Farmacy Beauty apart from other skincare brands? Well quite simply, Farmacy is a brand that builds that bridge between local farmers in upstate New York, skincare and science. The core of the Farmacy Beauty brand is its use of a unique form of Echinacea Purpurea - a herbaceous flowering plant (that looks a little bit like a daisy). The type of Echinacea Purpurea used in a Farmacy formulation is unlike any other in the family as it blooms a bright green flower. The green Echinacea Purpurea (known as GreenEnvy to Farmacy Beauty) has been found to have the highest concentrations of Cichoric Acid (a phytochemical), a potent natural antioxidant that helps to protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen. Farmacy Beauty only cold press the roots of the GreenEnvy plants as it is here where the Cichoric Acid is at its most potent. Whilst also utilising this unique plant, Farmacy Beauty has also helped to support the dwindling farming industry in upstate New York with its farming and cultivation of this unique form of Echinacea Purpurea. In turn this has helped to create jobs and keep the farming community going in an area where farming is an industry that is slowly dying. Each and every Farmacy product contains their trademarked GreenEnvy and the Honey Potion is not exception to this - combining GreenEnvy with honey that is sourced from the bees from the Farmacy farm.
If there has been one product that I have been asked frequently to review or for an opinion on - it would have to be Farmacy Beauty's The Honey Potion. After a month or two of weekly use I feel like I am ready to give this pot of gold a comprehensive review of my thoughts and experiences of this remarkable mask. If I had to summarise how I feel about this mask - quite simply put I really enjoy using this. In fact - I look forward to using this. What keeps me coming back for more exactly?
