Who We Are
Hey, We're Holly & Bjarke—founders of plant apothecary.
Love is in everything we do—love for the earth, love for good design, and love for our customers. We want you to feel these things when you use our products. We want you to wake up, get it on, get happy, calm down and be well (which our organic body washes will help you do).
Our products are for everyone.
Seriously. Whether you have sensitive skin, acne, lighter or darker, bumpy or smooth… our unisex, USDA Organic beauty, grooming and bath products cater to any skin type to execute their mission of lathering up, moisturizing, purifying, de-stressing, exfoliating and being well, all for you. And don’t worry, NO petroleum, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones or any other synthetic nasties. We follow principles of classical aromatherapy and herbalism to offer you some of the best plant-based apothecary products available today for you and your family.
I’ve always had sensitive skin.
Everything I tried in my earlier years would result in breakouts or reactions; synthetic fragrances and preservatives didn’t agree with me and started to cause a lot of problems.
Product labels always listed irritating synthetic and often toxic ingredients that I needed to avoid, and after a while I gave up on finding skincare that was both as pure as I needed and also safe for the environment, at prices that weren’t ridiculous. So I studied natural cosmetic formulation, aromatherapy and a little herbalism and learned to make my own products that were simple, natural, unharmful and restorative.
Then one day my husband Bjarke and I realized we could come up with clear, simple, fun packaging for these products—the kind of packaging we like— and introduce them to the market as a line. And thus PLANT Apothecary was born!
