Our Science

Our founder is a Pharmacist.

We take our science seriously!

Apothekari is formulated with effective ingredients that are supported by science. We follow guidelines to ensure that ingredients are incorporated in our formulations at appropriate concentrations to ensure that you get optimal results. We use a wide range of ingredients including cell-communicating agents, exfoliators, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, emollients, skin brighteners and moisturizers, amongst many others. As a small company, we can quickly adapt to changes and new research to deliver treatments that are cutting edge and technologically advanced.

Look for:

  • Retinoids
  • L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
  • Niacinamide
  • Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)
  • Argan oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Ferulic acid
  • Alpha lipoic acid and
  • Squalane, to name a few.

Just as importantly as efficacy, we are concerned with your safety. While we aren’t an organic skin care line and don’t claim to be “natural,” that doesn’t mean that we don’t care about what goes on your skin. Our line is
paraben-free, phthalate-free, cruelty-free and also free from highly sensitizing ingredients such as fragrances and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). Some ‘natural’ and organic ingredients (such as many essential oils) can be highly irritating to skin and we avoid those as much as possible. (Read more about Our Philosophy).

Apothekari offers both ready-to-wear treatments for you to purchase off the shelf, along with an ever-growing line of Bespoke products, which are made-to-order and can be customized for your individual skin care needs.

We are always evaluating our offerings based on current research and work hard to give you the best products for your skin, regardless of your skin type or age.
