Our Meticulous Process
It all starts with Research + Development
Many people have asked how Huna Apothecary goes about creating new botanical skin wonders. Well, we’re not about to give away all of our secrets, but we can tell you that all of our formulations begin with a specific skin concern to solve, followed by hours of R&D, where our methodology includes extensive research in the areas of botanical science, herbal medicine, human nutrition, and dermal (skin) health.
Then back to the lab
After research is concluded, we move our work into the Laboratory where the real work begins- formulating an actual product and several (many!) rounds of testing. Once we’re satisfied with a new Skin Nutrition product, we’ll take it to our panel of human product testers, as we never test our products on animals. Most products will go back into R&D to refine based on product tester feedback, before moving on to further internal and external testing, qualifications, and quality assurances.
