Over the last several months, I’ve become a huge fan of Urb Apothecary, a Santa Cruz-based skin care line that works brilliantly. Combining smart science, comforting smells, stylish packaging, and effective ingredients, this line is one to watch. I’m so smitten with the line that every time a new product comes out I have to try it. My recent crush is on Urb Apothecary’s Rose Body Oil.
According to founder Leyna Allred, the Rose Body Oil, “is made by infusing sunflower and kukui oils with rose petals and rose hips. By doing this, the oils are infused with the healing properties of the rose petals and rose hips. Rose, in every form, is naturally astringent, helps tighten skin, reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines, soothes skin, minimizes redness and inflammation and acne.”
