WELCOME TO THE EVOLUTION OF SKINCARE
We are Cultivate Apothecary at Stonegate Farm ~ a deeply-curated, hand-crafted beauty and wellness brand. We believe in the power of organic, whole-plant botanical skin care. We believe organic is about more than ingredients and labels, it’s about sustainable relationships ~ to the land we grow on and the planet we share, to the products we create and the customers we serve. Environmental stewardship and a low carbon footprint are built into every aspect of our brand, and we formulate skin care that is authentic, safe, transparent and trusted as part of your daily beauty ritual.
You Are a Force of Nature
The power of our botanical beauty and wellness line lies not only in the care we take to cultivate and process the finest, most beneficial organic herbs, fruit and flowers on our farm, but in our potent solar-infused formulations that are custom blended for our customers. Our farm lab is inspired by a profound and powerful teacher ~ Nature ~ and we nurture and create products that embrace the life-enhancing, wholesome rituals of natural skin and body care. Sign up to learn more about our approach to whole plant/whole body beauty and begin the journey towards your truest, most beautiful self.
custom-blended beauty from our farm lab
Because everyone’s skin is unique, our whole-plant serums are custom blended to suit each of our customer’s needs. There’s nothing off-the-shelf about Cultivate Apothecary ~ we formulate for you. Just as every plant on our farm may share basic physiology, they each have their own singular profile of needs: micro-nutrients, PH balance, light, soil structure, water…As herb and flower farmers, we’re deeply immersed in the complex macrocosm of life that surrounds us and is in our care. We approach your beauty and wellness with the same thoughtful attention: We get to know you and your needs and build a bespoke ritual of products and care around your skin. After all, there is only one you.
WHAT KIND OF BEAUTIFUL ARE YOU?
To find the best Serum for your skin, Let’s begin with a quick consultation...
WHY OUR SERUMS ARE PERFECT FOR YOUR SKIN
Natural Is Better
Women have been benefitting from oils and serums in their skincare routines for centuries. Oils are naturally loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, polyphenols and beneficial omega fatty acids that all protect, rejuvenate and nourish your skin. The best part…you’ll see immediate results. Unlike cream-based moisturizers, oils work with your natural skin mantle and are easily absorbed to provide maximum hydration and care. They also create a beautiful, protective barrier so that all those benefits stay in your skin throughout the day.
Well-Suited to All Skin Types
Oil-based serums are well-suited to all skin types. Contrary to popular belief, they will actually balance overly-oily skin leaving it perfectly hydrated, smooth, plump and glowing. Oils also feel incredible going on your skin, and along with our targeted aromatherapeutics, they will brighten both your skin and mood!
They Feel Luxurious
The feel of an oil-based serum is unparalleled. Beautiful visually, they easily glide onto your skin and soak in almost instantly, leaving your face, smooth, bright and glowing. Cream-based moisturizers often feel too light, or too heavy ~ never quite living up to what you hope for. Oils have a naturally beautiful texture, they feel safe and wonderful going on your skin.
And…you’ll Want to Wear Less Makeup
Facial oils leave your skin looking fully hydrated, soft, smooth and glowing. Most times you will need nothing more than a good eye cream and sunscreen to complete your daytime skin care ritual and certainly nothing more than an eye cream at night. You’ll find yourself wearing less make-up during the day, and feeling incredible about it.
We believe that true, lasting, and radiant beauty begins with nature. It comes from cultivating a relationship with the powerful healing forces of the natural world, and developing rituals of care that lead to deeper connections to your own well-being. This is where beauty begins and flourishes.
Why coming from somewhere matters…
At Stonegate, we farm under the influence of beauty ~ we set the aesthetic bar high so that everything we conjure and create has the opportunity to rise above the ordinary…many beauty products come from everywhere (and nowhere), but we believe in a strong relationship to place in order to truly create something singular and exceptional.
The integrity of process…
Why how we create matters…
Our beauty products begin with growing and nurturing dozens of varieties of herbs and flowers at the farm, carefully cultivating, drying and processing them to maintain their powerful efficacy, and slow-infusing them into a highly-selective blend of whole-plant organic oils. What touches and transforms your face has many months of thoughtful care and cultivation behind it.
“My skin has been transformed, it's as though the clock has been turned back and I feel younger, "prettier", healthier...my skin feels resilient and illuminated. These serums have been crafted with a respect for natural, organic ingredients, and not only have they evenly hydrated and nourished my skin, creating an allover healthy glow, but they are a delight for the senses with their intoxicating fragrance and silky texture. Skin care has been elevated to a beautiful ritual each morning and night" - Esther K.
"I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these!!! Wow...I don't think I'll ever go back to cream.

It is a new morning and evening ritual that is absolutely lovely." - Dawn P.
