I first came across the Australian brand, Grown Alchemist, thanks to my friend, Tine, who gifted me a hand cream, many years ago. I liked the aesthetics, because it had that whole tin tube with vintage style writing on it. Smelled good and felt good too. But you know what? I thought it only sold body products. That’s first impressions for you! It wasn’t very popular then, and distribution was fairly limited to Australia at the time.
When I found out that the good folks at Ken’s Apothecary were bringing in the brand (FINALLY!), I got a little excited. I still thought it was a bath and body brand though (and I love nice smelling bath and body products!) … until I came upon their counter in the store and went “Grown Alchemist has skincare too?!”
That upped my interest tenfold LOL! 😀 I was privileged to be at the recent press launch introducing Grown Alchemist, in the presence of its founders, Jeremy and Keston Muijs, so not only got a little insight into the brand, but got to play with some of the products, and speak to Jeremy one-on-one to gain some insight into the brand, and I thought I’d share the info with you 🙂
