Deep Dive: Province Apothecary
Blending the wilds of Canada into nourishing and balancing skincare.
Julie Clark began crafting natural, organic beauty products out of her kitchen in New York’s Hell's Kitchen after struggling with allergies and eczema all her life. She was busy working as a costume designer and stylist but found herself drawn to holistic skincare. She would spend her free time experimenting with oils, waxes and herbs- all in pursuit of the perfect skin care regime for her sensitive skin. In 2010, Julie left NYC to study Aromatherapy, Holistic Health and Esthetics in Toronto where she formed the foundation of her skincare expertise, experimenting with raw materials and natural ingredients. Now a certified holistic esthetician and aromatherapist, Julie remains committed to innovation, sustainability, and small-batch skin care of the highest quality.
Province Apothecary products use only the highest quality certified organic, biodynamic and wildcrafted ingredients and are always free from: petroleum, parabens, synthetic fragrances and ingredients, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, dyes, alcohol, solvents, pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), palm oil or derivatives, cosmetic grade ingredients and toxins of any kind.
Julie is inspired by her clients and is dedicated to helping clients feel good in their own skin and her definition of natural beauty goes beyond simply organic and wild-crafted ingredients. The Province Apothecary facial treatments often include hand-blended masks using local produce and seasonally appropriate, farmer-friendly ingredients. While Province Apothecary has long outgrown the kitchen, Julie’s devotion to fresh, wild-crafted, seasonal, and organic beauty continues.
Pure, effective products that benefit even the most sensitive complexions.
What Julie wants most is to you to feel beautiful and confident in your own skin. Province Apothecary began with the mission to produce the best skincare products using only high quality, certified organic, biodynamic and wildcrafted ingredients sourced from each Canadian province. Each product is formulated, blended, and packaged by hand in small batches, ensuring the highest quality skincare for you.
Organic Canadian Beauty: Leading the green beauty way with organic ingredients from each Canadian province.
Province Apothecary sources the highest quality organic, wildcrafted ingredients from each Canadian Province. Some of Julie’s favourite ingredients are organic seaweed from Nova Scotia, maple syrup from Quebec, organic sunflower oil from Ontario, organic beeswax from Alberta, organic lentil flour from Manitoba, and organic raspberry oil + glacial clay from British Columbia!
ORGANIC CANADIAN SUNFLOWER OIL
Organic sunflower oil naturally hydrates and soothes. It is rich in vitamins A, B, D and E and is uniquely high in omega-9 fatty acids which help the skin retain its natural softness. It is easily absorbed into the skin without clogging or blocking pores.
ORGANIC CANADIAN BEESWAX
Organic beeswax naturally moisturizes and protects. Beeswax creates a lasting protective layer which locks in moisture and softens skin.
CANADIAN RASPBERRY SEED OIL
Organic raspberry seed oil naturally soothes and protects. It is rich in vitamins a and E and omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, which soothes skin irritation and relieves inflammation. It is also a natural SPF, protecting the skin from UV rays.
