Sharmani Pillay

Pharmacist & Founder

Skincare Mission

Focus on Science

Like many women, Sharmani was fed up and frustrated by the confusion surrounding skincare. Surely there was a better way? She dug down deep, spending time researching ingredients and formulations and speaking to formulation experts. As a pharmacist, she knew that more did not always mean better.

A simple routine with fewer products, makes it more likely for you to stick with a regimen when it comes to your health. So, she approached skincare the same way, focusing on 3 essential steps: Prep, Protect & Perfect.

The result? Apothekari. This female founder created a line of naturally safe, science-based and high-performance skincare products made with time-tested and proven ingredients, combined with the best technology. Supercharge your skin’s health, making it look and feel better.

Love my Apothekari skin care. It’s quick, easy & simple. My skin has never felt better.

AHA-mazing gel delivers the goods!

This cleanser has kept my aging skin free of occasional hormonal acne for years and prepped it for the other super effective Apothekari serums. I am also a fan of the minty scent, consistency and dispenser!


I've tried what feels like every natural deodorant ever manufactured, and after about 3 years or so (and so so so many hundred of $ at an average of $40 a pop!), I gave up and went back to the full potency commercial crap. I had heard this one was good, but figured I was a smelly lost cause. A month in, I was still waiting for the ball to drop - because I seriously DO NOT smell!!!! Fairly blown away, but idiot that I am gave it to my sister, so now the dilemma is - stay with the same scent or try a new one!


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 !
