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.

Our in-house product line, Between You & The Moon is lovingly made by the staff (with some help from apprentices) at the Windsor Terrace Workshop of Brooklyn Herborium. It was 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 were developed over a number of years, the 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 In addition
  • 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 2 physical locations, 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.

  1. Roxanne McIntosh gave me some of your products for Xmas and I love them. I will try to get to the store and see what I can buy. I have super sensitive skin and these products are perfect. Today I went out for the first time in many yrs. only with the moisturizer. A neighbor saw me on the street and complimented me on my skin. I told her about your products and she will be contacting you! I never dreamt that at age 74 anyone would compliment me! GREAT PRODUCTS! I need sunscreen! Do you make it? this a must for me!

    • Thanks Adriana! We don’t make a sunscreen, but recommend using one that’s a physical block (usually zinc based) as opposed to a chemical block. Your best bet is to wear a lovely stylish hat and try to avoid the direct sun during peak hours. This isn’t always possible, but it’s best for your skin’s health. We don’t mind a little sun on our limbs since that’s how our bodies make Vitamin-D. Please do come visit us across the East River!
