- ABOUT THE BRAND
Natasha Dauncey, founder of Apothaka® is passionate about creating thoughtful formulations which support a healthy skin barrier through a "less is more" approach to skincare. Where so much of the beauty industry is focussed on an unrealistic goal around "perfect" or "flawless" skin, Apothaka® is here to reset the goal to healthy, happy skin (and healthy ageing while we're at it!) for everyone!
Natasha carefully designs her own formulations using the best of what nature & science have to offer (skincare doesn't need to be about one OR the other!). Everything is made in the UK, no pre-made bases are used, giving her full control of the ingredients, which she selects based on their benefits for your skin and their texture. Apothaka® products are about improving the way skin looks and feels but also about enjoying the experience of using them: like bringing a bit of the spa experience at home.
- HOW TO USE
Apply 1-2 pumps of cleanser to damp skin and massage over the face and neck for around a minute, to break down make up, sunscreen & impurities. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use alone (morning / night) or as a second cleanse, if needed. Can be used around the eye area, but use a dedicated eye make-up remover first for stubborn eye make-up, and avoid getting the product in your eyes.
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
