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 this moisturizer. So soft and dewy.

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Dear Sandy,

Thank you for your review. We're so pleased to hear that our deodorant is working very well for you! We're always happy to receive feedback from our customers as we try to improve our products. We will take your comment into consideration to improve the formulation. Thank you!

Good customer service

Updated Review: Customer service reached out to me promptly and provided me with a refund. I was satisfied with customer service. Wish this product worked for me because prior to the rash it was great.

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again
