devinfoto photographyWhen we introduced A is for Anti-Aging, we knew we’d come up with something special. Formulated with a patent pending stabilized retinaldehyde (IconicA) – the immediate precursor to retinoic acid, it promotes collagen production leading to firmer skin. Beyond that however, retinaldehyde is far less irritating to skin than retinol or retinoic acid so all skin types, even sensitive skin, can use it.

We’re delighted that new clinical results confirm what we already know AND deliver more positive news regarding wrinkles, skin tone, skin radiance, skin smoothness and more:

1. Four Week Study – Significant Improvement. An independent evaluation of IconicA in a cream vs the same cream without IconicA showed a statistically significant improvement in clinical grading scores for a number of parameters on the face – radiance/brightness, tactile smoothness, visual smoothness, fine lines, overall photo damage, overall evenness of skin tone and overall appearance – as well as wrinkles on the cheeks, under eye, and crow’s feet areas when compared to baseline scores:

  • 8.9% reduction in Crow’s Feet wrinkles
  • 12.5% reduction in fine lines
  • 14.7% improvement in radiance/brightness
  • 11.4% reduction in under eye wrinkles
  • 9.4% reduction in cheek wrinkles
  • 21.1% improvement in tactile smoothness
  • 10.3% improvement in overall evenness of skin tone

2. Six Week Study – Subjects who used a cream with IconicA for six weeks commented on the dramatic evenness of overall facial complexion, without irritation, burning or stinging like other Vitamin A products used in the past. Neck, decollete were smoother and overall improved tone.

3. GeneMarker Study – Compared to retinaldehyde, IconicA is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, improves skin barrier function, tightens skin and is skin whitening.

4. Wrinkle Reduction Photography Study – Demonstrates a 52% reduction in wrinkles with a Visia-CR, the premier research and development imaging camera and database.


5. Redness Reduction Photography Study – Demonstrates a 70% reduction in redness with a Visia-CR, the premier research and development imaging camera and database.


The stabilized retinaldehyde in A is for Anti-Aging delivers antioxidant, skin whitening and anti-inflammatory benefits while improving skin barrier function and tightening skin. We’re proud to offer this advanced cosmeceutical ingredient in our state of the art Apothekari Dermaceuticals line.

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
