Golden Path Alchemy vegan beauty products has a very clear list of what they won’t do. They won’t test on animals, they won’t use synthetic materials or chemicals in their beauty products, and they won’t package their products in anything but recyclable glass and recycled labeling.
Nestled in Montecito, CA, the makers of Golden Patch Alchemy vegan beauty products grow a portion of their raw materials in their own organic garden. Their products are all handmade and holistic and are a combination of Chinese herbs, Western herbs, therapeutic essential oils, and other organic botanicals to feed your skin with nutrients to help it be its best. And if you live by the school of thought that, “If it can go bad it is good for you and if it can’t go bad, it’s not,” then Golden Patch Alchemy is the company for you. They hand-make all of their products in small batches, which will typically last 3 months-1 year, vs. commercial products that tend to last up to 3 years.
The way that Golden Path Alchemy creates their vegan beauty products is quite unique. Citing an inspiration by the harmony of nature, they look to the five elements (wood, fire, earth, water and metal) as reflection of the perfect harmony for caring for our bodies. They state on their website (link) that, “Wood Awakens our growth upward and outward connecting our deepest roots with our outermost branches. Fire Purifies and expresses our heart song. The earth Refines and harvests the gifts of our lives. Metal Renews the precious gold within. Water Illuminates our path wherever it may lead.”
It is this mentality that has guided how they formulated, and named, their product lines. Their “Awaken” line is for normal skin, their “Purify” line for oily/acne prone skin, their “Refine” line is for sensitive skin, their “Renew” line is for mature, dry or tired skin, and “Illuminate” is for hyper-pigmented and aging skin. Within each of these lines is a multitude of different skin and body products including face cleaners, masks, facial steamers and hydrating facial oils.
