Welcome to Apothaka
Supportive skincare for healthy skin
I'm Natasha Dauncey, founder of Apothaka® . I'm really passionate about the use of the right ingredients in skincare products and my aim is to ensure that anyone with a desire to look after their skin is able to do so using high quality, simple but effective products. Cleverly and uniquely blended with light ingredients which won't clog pores. Apothaka® utilises the power of plant-based ingredients to make high quality, effective skincare products to support healthy skin. I strongly believe that less is more and that healthy skin can be achieved with just a few simple steps. I blend all products by hand in the UK in small batches in order to ensure maximum freshness. The unique formulations have been carefully designed by me and are fully compliant with EU cosmetic regulations: something that I take very seriously as a brand. No pre-made bases are used. Just effective ingredients, selected based on their benefits for your skin. Formulations feature predominantly lightweight, high linoleic oils, known for their affinity with the skin and particular benefit for irritated and damaged skin as they maintain skin barrier function. Essential oils not only provide a natural and subtle scent, but can also help to improve your overall sense of well-being and offer conditioning benefits for your skin. For those who cannot use essential oils, my new Comforting range is ideal for sensitive skins. Formulated with gentle and soothing ingredients to calm and nourish the skin.
Apothaka® face oils are suitable for a wide range of skin types and ages. The normal to combination skin formulation, which won a 2017 Beauty Shortlist Editor's Choice Award is specifically formulated with lightweight ingredients that don't clog pores, unlike many other heavier face oils. Both face oils have been featured in Vogue (May & July 2017 editions) and by Pixiwoo (September 2018).
Apothaka® products are about improving the way skin looks and feels but also about enjoying the experience of using them: like bringing a bit of the spa experience at home. I currently focus on a core collection of products but each year I expand my collection with carefully chosen formulations. Skincare shouldn't be overwhelming so my aim is to keep things simple for you. Coming next is a hydrating (hyaluronic acid-based) serum, so watch this space!
