JTG #69 Farm To Skin Skincare With Aviva Skye Tilson Founder Apis Apotheca

In this episode, I talk to  Aviva Skye Tilson, the creator of a farm-to-bottle skincare line called Apis Apotheca.

About my guest:

Aviva Skye Tilson, the creator of Apis Apotheca, comes from a background in biodynamic and organic farming and is a certified community herbalist.

Aviva has spent a decade healing herself through working with plants and animals and has always had an obsession with skincare. Through much trial and error, her skincare line represents her combined years of field experience, academic research, endless experimentation and provides the highest quality, most effective whole-plant based skincare available.

Her products can be used by people of all skin types, and are especially safe for acne and eczema-prone skin. Her simple, botanically infused line targets the 5 main concerns challenging blemish-prone, (and therefore barrier damaged) skin: unbalanced skin microbiome, excess sebum oxidation, irregular desquamation, chronic inflammation, and inefficient wound healing.

Her new farm in New York’s stunning Hudson Valley is high on a hill facing the Catskill Mountains, with deep, mineral-rich, loamy soil that supports trillions of healthy micro-organisms in balance. This healthy soil grows healthy plants, 100% organically. They grow 98% of the plants used in her formulas which ensures freshness and potency.

Aviva’s lab is steps away from her farm fields, which enables her to capture the potency of the plants they grow to the fullest.
