The unique farm-grown botanicals like Echinacea GreenEnvy™ that define Farmacy Beauty are enhanced with cutting-edge technologies to unleash their full potency.
Our irritant-free products are formulated with naturally derived ingredients, which have been activated by our team of scientists to deliver results you can see and feel: youthful radiance, healthy hydration and renewed confidence.
Mark Veeder is the pioneer plantsman behind the discovery and patenting of Echinacea GreenEnvy™, the unique variant of Echinacea Purpurea that forms the basis of all Farmacy products.
After he met the founder of one of the most respected and innovative cosmetics formulation, research and manufacturing labs in the world, they quickly resolved to work together to launch a farm-to-skin brand, incorporating the latest scientific research.
To organically cultivate the GreenEnvy used in all Farmacy products, Mark has partnered with local farming expert Robert Beyfuss, renowned beekeepers Megan Denver and Jorik Phillips as well as farmer Greg Swartz to cultivate the plant and create unique Echinacea honey. Together, they are creating jobs, changing lives and revitalizing local farming communities.
Following the initial and successful launch of Farmacy we began exploring expansion into new products that could further leverage other unique ingredients from our Echinacea farms.
Adding beehives was a natural – providing colonies to pollinate our 30,000 Echinacea plants so that all the GreenEnvy™ goodness is brought back to the hives. The bees make honey out of that nectar, which is an effective natural humectant and used in all our honey products.
Farmacy has expanded so quickly that we’ve needed to increase our farmland for growing EchinaceaGreenEnvy™. To make this happen, we partnered with organic farmer Greg Swartz of Willow Wisp Organic Farm, whose acreage features an amazing diversity of crops in Northwest Pennsylvania, right along the Delaware River.
We recently set up greenhouse space at Stony Brook University so we can continue to study the plant in a controlled environment and take advantage of the incredible team of scientists and researchers we employ.
A unique patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea, GreenEnvy™ has been tested to be 300% more powerful than regular Echinacea as it contains a high concentration of the phytochemical Cichoric Acid. This potent natural antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, helps protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen.
Cichoric acid also inhibits the enzyme Tyrosinase to normalize the skin pigmentation process and promote a more evenly toned complexion.
The scientists and lab behind Farmacy are innovative experts in cosmetics formulation and research, and seek out nature’s most novel yet effective ingredients.
These scientists help us extract the most potent antioxidants from Echinacea GreenEnvy™ and GreenEnvy™ Honey, for our powerful products.
