We’ve all heard the classic phrase ‘Beauty is more than skin deep’, but let’s be real: our beauty regimen usually is. If you want gorgeous, glistening hair like J. Lo, it’s gonna take more than topical skincare and haircare products. Diet, daily habits, overall health, and gut health—although not nearly as fun to talk about as a shiny, new serum—are the keys to fly skin and lush locks. While we can’t throw down on a gym membership and a meal planner for you, we do know the best way to supplement your diet to help rock your best hair moment: Apotecari’s tried, tested, and truly gorgeous bioactive hair care supplements.
What is Bioactive Haircare?
Apotecari was founded by Simone Abaron, a qualified naturopath, herbalist, nutritionist with a certificate from the Australian Institute of Trichology (that is, the study of hair). Abaron’s years of using damaging salon and at-home hair care led her to found Apotecari out of a need for solutions that go deeper than the surface. She put her 15-plus years of experience in supplemental wellness into Apotecari hair vitamins, which has grown since the brand’s inception.
The company now offers a wide range of bioactive hair care that tackles tough concerns, including hair growth, flaky scalp, hair loss, and thickening. As Simone Abaron, the founder of Apotecari, explains: “The term ‘Bioactive’ describes something that has an effect on, or interaction with, the body’s cells and tissues; in the case of hair care, 'bioactive' ingredients are those known to fuel and support healthy hair and growth from within.”
How Did Apotecari Decide to Become Vegan?
Being an environmentally friendly and sustainable company, Apotecari strives to only source the best possible ingredients that are carefully researched and Cruelty Free. As Simone Abaron tells us: “Aside from being staunch animal lovers, Apotecari turns to sustainable practices to ensure we're supporting our Earth as best we can; looking to a greater good... All of our essentials are free from animal products with the exception of Crowning Glory, which, given the nature of its plant-based contents, requires a soft-gel capsule casing.”
With the exclusion of Crowning Glory, each Apotecari formula is plant-based, cruelty-free, non-GMO, and free of allergens including gluten, wheat, dairy, lactose, shellfish, nuts, and eggs, so it’s safe for everyone. You also won’t find any artificial colors, sweeteners, alcohol, or preservatives in these supplements, either!
How does Apotecari choose its ingredients to be great for hair and gut health?
All of Apotecari’s supplements are packed to the brim with ingredients that encourage hair repair and growth. We wanted to know how they determine which vitamins are good for hair, and particularly, what vitamins encourage hair growth, so we asked Simone Abaron: “Our team of certified nutritionists, naturopaths and trichologists use their knowledge, experience and science to carefully-curate our products according to what people need and want in 2020... In each formulation, our focuses are quality ingredients, results and sustainability.”
How does starting from the inside create results?
Thinning, damaged hair or an itchy, angry scalp can stem from a wide range of factors. Apotecari’s supplements help support hair health, working in tandem with topical products to produce the best results. Whether you love to reach for the bleach, struggle with breakage due to your hair’s natural texture, or your hair just straight up just does not grow, there’s an Apotecari product to address your problem
We wanted to know how to stimulate hair growth and strength, so we asked Simone Abaron who explains that it all starts on the inside: ”Complementing a busy, high-powered life in 2020, the Apotecari range exists to support the gaps often wrought by our lifestyle - supplementing our sometimes-lower nutrition intake and counteracting the pollution we're exposed to, the daily stresses we live with and the hormonal changes we experience.”
Because supplemental nutrition products can initiate changes in our bodies, it’s important to consult your doctor before starting anything new. But once you’re all clear, we’re pretty sure you’ll be obsessed with the results.
