why we love // urb apothecary

Welcome to the first “why we love” series where I talk about brands we carry in the shop, like URB apothecary, or brands we love and why!

Started in 2013 by Leyna Allred, URB apothecary was born out of a desire to bring the natural healing properties of plants to beauty rituals. Each product is made with the highest quality organic, fair-trade and ethical ingredients in California.

I first fell in love with Leyna’s product after purchasing her Lip & Cheek Tint from a small boutique in Philadelphia, Moon + Arrow, and quickly began my love affair with this brand. That love was cemented when after desperately trying various creams for my daughter’s diaper rash, URB’s Butt Balm soothed it within one use!

When I decided to expand our assortment at Doe + Fawn, I knew I wanted to share my love of natural, and organic, self-care products. This is something I have become incredibly passionate about, and Leyna takes that one-step forward by adding her eco-consciousness to packaging and shipping.

Here are my favorite products from her shop, which I highly recommend. To learn more about Leyna and her mission to create a plant-based alternative to your beauty cabinet, check our her shop.

Slumber Serum $ 22

This serum is chalk full of herbs and essential oils, to help bring a calmness to you mind, and your skin, while easing the mind to a relaxing slumber.

The blend of calendula, lavender, chamomile, and scents like sandalwood and lavender, make is a product you can use for mental break during a stressful day.

Mama Gift Set $ 32

This gift sets contains both the belly butter and butt balm, a must for any expectant, or new, mom.

The butt balm is the perfect heal-all for sensitive tushies since it’s non-toxic and all natural. Soothing irritated, cracked, or dry skin.

Belly Butter is the perfect drink of anti-oxidant oils for tight and stretched skin that many experience with growing and stretching bellies.

Sun Worshipper Serum $ 26

This serum is one I recommend to E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E! I like to pair this with my jade facial roller, when I really need an extra jolt of nutrients to my skin. Don’t let the name fool you, this is made for every season and every face. The repairing properties just make it even more magical for those of us who sometimes chase that summer glow!

Lip/Cheek Tint $12

The old faithful. This subtle tint is the key to that effortless no-make up look. Moisturizing while it works, it can be purchased in a vegan option or waste-free.
