Derma-corrective Apothecary Cosmetics
FRESH GREEN NATURAL
CUSTOM TAILORED SKINCARE WELLNESS SOLUTIONS AS UNIQUE AS YOU
We believe your skin is as unique as you where mass-made blanket-approach products cannot be as truly effective as products formulated to match your uniqueness.
While some skin conditions may be considered common, fact is, no two people experience them in exactly the same way.
FACT: Mass produced and marketed products often fail to deliver on promises mostly because they attempt to apply blanket solutions in fancy eye catching wrappings and marketing hype.
FACT: Consumers, for the most part mix & match trying multiple products to only end-up being unsatisfied or worse yet, now with skin conditions far from being what they were starting out with.
One major point that many consumers and even some skincare experts claim or do is they believe it's OK to mix and match products together from different brands and this is where they fall short.
FACT: Formulations from different brands mixed together can negate the action of the specified task of a given product or worse yet, create a new or possible toxin response to the skin short or long-term. Remember, sometimes the damage induced on the skin will not become apparent till years later, by then it is either too late or will cost you $$$ in treatments or products to fix what could have been avoided with common sense.
Truth is, the complex and highly individual root causes of skin conditions are never addressed where many products mostly mask or inhibit the real issues, in other words, short-term quick surface fixes to the eye only.
Perhaps even more concerning, or should we say alarming, is that most of these products are made with perfumed cocktails including dyes, parabens, animal by-products and other preservative chemicals to keep them stable and viable in order to sit on shelves waiting for purchase. True skincare products should be like real food for the skin, helping resolve and prevent ailments, maintain youthful aging and more. Yes, one can age gracefully and beautifully.
On a global scale, purchasing mass-made products only feeds a large industrial machine that has no true concern for the welfare of one's skin; only market-hold, power and profit. Less not forget the environmental impact created.
The cosmetic industry is the second largest industry in the world. Consumers handout billions of dollars around the world every year in cosmetic purchases and it grows every year. In our opinion, mass-made products are far from providing any long-term true benefits as many contain toxic additives that can actually worsen existing conditions, create new ones, attribute to the decline of health and even that of a next generations health through transference of persistent toxin bio-accumulations.
The eco-toxicity from many of these products is also of an alarming concern. Truth is, waste alone from using such products everyday is in part responsible for the affects seen through climate change today. Looking after our skin should be yes, effective, but not at the risk of harming any life on any level.
Our Apothecary Skincare services represent an evolution in cosmeceutical grade skincare with products that are created fresh for you using proven skincare sciences and ingredients that are ethically sourced from nature in quantities that retain potency throughout use, eliminate waste to ensure the best possible value and are Eco-conscious by using recyclable, minimalist packaging. No fancy bottles or hyped up marketing, just true skin loving natural cosmeceuticals, or should we say nutraceuticals that truly feed, heal and protect the most precious organ your own, your skin.
Our custom formulations and small-batch processing are created to be without toxic preservatives, artificial perfumes, chemical emulsifiers, silicone, mineral oils, colourants, amines or other known harmful additives to life. This is one step beyond commonly found skincare products as it now becomes a professional resource towards each individual's personal requirements for a healthier lifestyle and peace of mind. We can even create your very own personalized perfume for both individual or corporate needs.

What’s in your skincare?
NVEI is the first institute of its kind in Edmonton to offer the unique service of Qualified Product Review by an internationally qualified Cosmetic Derma-hygienist and her team of experts.
It takes a mere 26 seconds for chemicals to enter the bloodstream via your skin, don't you want to know what's exactly in that product you are using every day?
We do and that's why we encourage you to bring in your current skincare products to ensure that the ingredients listed on the label are working for your skin and not against it. This is an extremely important step in the treatment process as more often than not, the ingredients in your skincare products are actually working against your natural skin physiology, resulting in decreased immune function, impaired skin barrier and speeding up of the natural aging process.
There are a number of factors that can serve, individually or collectively, to compromise our skin’s ability to heal and maintain normal daily functions. In fact, without even being aware of it, most of us have allowed and even cultivated dysfunction in our skin through diet, stress, environment and well intended but, improper use of skin care products. Using the wrong products or even the right products in the wrong way, may not only worsen existing skin conditions but can also lead to new ones.
What are toxic chemicals doing to your skin?
Artificial ingredients, especially colors, fragrances, and preservatives induce inflammation of the skin which steals the skins nutrient supply, making it unable to properly heal itself. When inflammation from a toxin occurs, your skin’s resources end up being tied up dealing with a newly created inflammation. This means that maybe the product or products you are using are in fact stopping the repair of existing damage or for normal cell regeneration. To the surface, it may seem like your products are helping, or are they?
The build up (bio-accumulation) of toxic chemicals found in many products can lead to an impaired immune function and the eventual breakdown of skin structures and their supportive network. This results, an artificially induced variety of skin concerns, including acne, aged, wrinkled, and sensitive skin now occur.
Ok, so what should my skincare products really achieve?
Simple, your skincare products should work for you, not against you. Your skincare routine should be an enjoyable one, not a chore. Your skin is unique, meaning there is no one on this earth that is like you. So why buy products designed for everyone when your needs are truly unique. Your skincare ingredients should be designed to calm inflammations, prevent further damage and while maintain epidermal integrity in order to maximize and focus the skin’s repair efforts on pre-existing conditions without creating new ones.
How do I ensure the long-term health of my skin?
It is essential to understand that the way to healthy, well-functioning skin is through ensuring proper cell nutrition and the most efficient and direct way to feed your skin cells is through healthy eating, topical nutrition therapies, and noninvasive rejuvenation techniques.
This is why we offer the unique service of a product review. We encourage you to bring in your current products to ensure that the ingredients contained within are working for your skin and not against it. We will review your skincare products and analyze the ingredients to ensure they support the current and long-term health of your skin. If your current skincare products do meet the standard for increasing and maintaining optimal skin health, we will simply create one for you that does.
