SALT & SEAWEED APOTHECARY
Born from my desire to create active, natural and organic luxury skincare products, that truly deliver results by nourishing the skin with bio-available ocean-sourced ingredients. Since ancient times, the beauty secrets of the sea have been revered – including the powerful restorative properties of seaweed, ocean water, sea salt and marine glacial clay. Seaweed is a nutrient-dense superfood and is the superhero ingredient in Salt & Seaweed Apothecary products. Seaweed contains powerful bio-available nutrients and minerals that are effortlessly absorbed, restoring and rejuvenating the skin. All my formulations are infused with active ocean ingredients and the purest, organic essential oils that have been carefully selected to beautify, restore and replenish your skin. The synergy between seaweed, organic essential oils, and plant-based nutrients create powerful anti-aging remedies that effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin soft, smooth, glowingly healthy and hydrated.
SALT & SEAWEED packs a shameless punch of unrestrained luxury, exceptional quality with results-driven, purpose-built skincare for the goddess who wants to introduce a pamper-worthy ritual into her life.
I'm incredibly blessed to call Vancouver Island home. Situated a few minutes from Sebastion beach, I live with my family in the foothills of Lantzville, the forest is our backyard(literally), both of these elements are my constant source of inspiration.
Hi, I'm Nicole Sullivan, the founder and formulator of SALT & SEAWEED APOTHECARY.
It all started with childhood vacations to the exquisite shores of South Africa's Hibiscus Coast. With a deep love and respect for the ocean that tugged at my heart relentlessly, I knew I was destined to live by the sea.
As a holistic Aesthetician, clinical Aromatherapist and a Naturopath, I was perpetually researching healthier skincare options that I could recommend with honesty and certainty to my clients, products that were safe and effective, and would complement their healing journey, untainted by toxic synthetic ingredients. The harsh reality I discovered, was that many brands contained ingredients that were inferior and questionable, many even unpronounceable, with an abundance of low-quality fillers along with synthetic colorants, fragrances, and scary preservatives. Reading labels shouldn't require a PhD. I felt compelled to be "the change I wanted to see in the world". I knew I had the knowledge, the expertise, and never settled for anything other than excellence in my ingredient choices. I've created toxin-free products for my loved ones for many years, and found myself sharing them daily with my clients, who were thankful for natural and effective solutions.
In early 2012, I launched my first skincare company as a Certified Advanced Soap & Cosmetic formulator, and in the summer of 2017, our family relocated to Vancouver Island, BC. At that time, I decided to change the direction of my company. My passion for the ocean and it’s incredible restorative healing powers became my new obsession and my focus.TAKE THE PLUNGE!
It's a rare find - companies committed to the enormous task of being socially and environmentally responsible, only a handful truly care about making the world a better place. SALT & SEAWEED APOTHECARY is one of those companies, not because it's easy, but because it matters.
