About Naturopathica

At Naturopathica, we seek to inspire healthy lifestyles with products and well-being rituals that put the pleasure, warmth and simplicity back into caring for yourself.

Our name stems from naturopathic medicine which emphasizes healing with natural therapies. Inspired by this practice, we honor several core principles of naturopathic medicine in the work that we do:
• The Healing Power of Nature: We believe that the body has an innate ability to heal itself.
• Do No Harm: We never use toxic ingredients that could be detrimental to the health of the individual or irritating ingredients that engage the body’s immune system in low-grade chronic inflammation.
• Treat the Cause: We address the root causative factors to treat an imbalance.
• Holistic Approach: Skin disturbances have multiple origins including the mind, body and spirit, each of which must be addressed.
• Prevention: We focus on preventing imbalances with a good skin care regimen instead of treating symptoms.
In following these principles, we are able to create safe and effective products, rituals and experiences that promote health and beauty.
