Modern Magic

By Bella Pallett

Long ago, before the work of modern medicine was well established, Englishmen relied on the bounty of nature to treat their ailments and craft healthy-looking skin. Herbs as common as dandelions and lavender were seen as magic and used to treat a wide range of illnesses from the common cold to pain-striking gallstones. Meanwhile, herbs such as chamomile and cinnamon were used to help aid perfect skin by fading dark spots on the face and providing a radiant and more youthful glow. Read more here in Modern Magic.

Across the seas in Greece, garlic was the most common fix for infections and colds whilst in China liquorice root has long been prescribed to treat digestive issues and bacterial infections. Each country has its own history of herbology and uses unique methods and ingredients to craft medicine from nature.

Over time, the craft of herbology has become less praised due to the surge forward in medicine and science. This new form of skincare is if you like Modern Magic. By combining the power of herbalism with modern science, the skincare brand Naturopathica, founded in New York in 1995, aims to offer deeper beauty that touches every cell of the body and provides healing nourishment through the craft of herbology.

Believing in the power of plants, Naturopathica carefully creates its products using natural and sustainable products that work to ensure a long-lasting radiance is achieved. The successful Skin Care Collection uses proven and natural botanicals like oats, aloe and seed oils to help nourish the skin whilst cosmeceuticals like plant stem cells and retinol deliver visible results that are long-lasting.

Further emphasising the combination of the craft of herbology with science, the Body Care and Herbal Remedies Collection combine traditional healing practice with modern inspiration to promote skin radiance as well as relieve stress and restore sore muscles.

The founder of Naturopathica, Barbara Close, is a lifelong practitioner of the healing arts who has been an advocate for herbalism and wellness since 1995. Continuing to work on the brands’ formulas to ensure the highest quality, the products perfectly combine the craft of herbs with modern skincare science for the best possible results.

Naturopathica has expanded its craft of herbology to include treatments by opening a Sensory Meditation Lounge, including a Vitality Bar that offers custom-blended remedies and meditation classes. By offering the customers of Naturopathica the true coveted luxuries of self-care expertise, as well as state of the art massage therapy techniques, the craft of herbology meets with modern science to leave the body balanced and healed.
