What Is Supportive Skin Care?
Between You and The Moon is a holistic, supportive skin care line based in Functional Herbalism. Unlike many skincare philosophies (natural or not) that are centered around “controlling”, we recognize and embrace the idea that many skin problems are simply symptoms due to dysfunction and can be remedied by identifying underlying deficiencies and providing the skin with what it needs in order to function better. Our unique methods and products support the body’s innate ability to function beautifully by providing many of the skin’s basic needs topically.
All of our herbals goods, including our Between You & The Moon facial skincare line, are carefully hand-crafted by our Herbal Crafter staff at our Windsor Terrace Workshop in Brooklyn. We offer a working Herbal Crafter Apprenticeship (3 months, once a week work day) to teach our techniques to those interested in mastering these arts. Our products were originally developed in the early 2000’s by Emma Graves, our certified herbalist, highly skilled aesthetician, and beloved teacher in order to serve her private practice clients. Though they have been refined over the last 15 years, our underlying philosophy has not changed.
- Functional Holistic Skincare: All of the products in our Basic Holistic Skincare Line are free from artificial chemicals and preservatives. They are formulated to synergistically work with each other to help your skin meet all of its topical basic needs and promote healthy, functional, beautiful skin.
- Advanced Holistic Skincare: This is the branch of our skin care line that is especially useful for those who are just starting to dip their toes into the waters of natural and supportive, holistic skin care. They are formulated to provide an easier method of reducing your reliance on controlling products while showing maximum results. They can be used on their own or in addition to our Basic Skincare products. Because these products already are a mixture of both oil and water, they must have an emulsifier and preservative. We use the best available to us, taking into consideration what is best for sensitive skin that is also safe for the environment.
- Apothecary: Our Herbal Apothecary Goods are born of traditional wisdom and improved using modern methods to simplify their usage and improve results. There are no artificial chemicals or preservatives in any of these products. This Includes total family skin care including Baby Moon Collection: We’ve got baby covered from sweet little head to teeny tiny toes with organic and wild-crafted ingredients in the must-haves of baby skincare. Mamma Moon Products: Must Haves for post birth body care and Between a Rock & a Hard Face: Our Men’s Products for Shaving and Beard Care.
- Brooklyn Herborium’s Clean & Green Collection is a great was to keep your home and hands clean without the use of harmful toxins or artificial preservatives.
In our two Brooklyn shops, we carry many healthy home items. Our Windsor Terrace Location also features pantry goods and fresh produce, eggs and various other goods from neighboring farms that we know and love. Please come and visit!
