Our first encounter with these wonderful skin products was during a trip to The Drake Hotel in Toronto last summer. The experience of using these fine apothecary products made me realize just how harsh and uncomfortable my habitual choices really were. I'd never even really given that much thought to skin care products and how, like many other commercial products, are often made with many unnecessary and, more importantly, unhealthy ingredients.
When I shop for clothing, I look for pieces which feel comfortable and I find myself being more and more drawn towards quality fabrics as a result of my desire to be 'comfortable in my own skin'. Then it occurred to me, I had my priorities all wrong!
If I want to be comfortable in my own skin, I should probably be a lot more selective with the choice of cremes, gels and soaps I use on it, no?
My initial experience using (MALIN &GOETZ) made me instantly conscious of how significant the difference is when using quality skin products. I (like most guys) had always been one to deny the merit of investing into more expensive apothecary, so I decided to educate myself a little better on the subject. Turns out most of us use the equivalent of fast food on our skin when buying from a regular pharmacy or drug store. And this can result in unnecessary suffering from long term abuse on the skin from by-products found in commercial apothecary. Many times these products are at the very root of common skin ailments.

(MALIN+GOETZ) is a family-owned and operated apothecary in New York's Chelsea neighborhood launched March 2004. Easy-to-use two-step regimens offer head-to-toe pH balance - face, body, and hair - for both women and men. Starting with sensitive skin first, each advanced formula blends trusted natural ingredients with gentle performance technologies to address skin sensitivities, irritations and allergies resulting from unnecessary products, over-marketed harsh ingredients, and false claims. The key to our extraordinary cleansers is our hydration science. Gentle amino acid-based cleansing agents thoroughly purify and hydrate, helping to maintain a natural pH balance. Our advanced moisturizers are rooted in our absorption science to compliment our cleansers; they are oil-free and residue-free, blending nourishing fatty acids instead of traditionally greasy pore-clogging oils, silicones and waxes. Into both our cleansers and moisturizers, we incorporate beneficial botanical extracts that enhance performance and provide fresh natural scents that quickly evaporate - leaving room for personal fragrance choices. Each ingredient is carefully chosen as the least irritating and most advanced for performance. The result is formulas without unnecessary detergents, colorants and synthetic fragrances creating the most effective systems to simplify your life. (MALIN+GOETZ) does not test on animals and is made in the USA.
