Opened in July 2008, the Farmaesthetics Skincare Apothecary and Treatment Boutique is the eco-friendly skincare…More company's flagship store. Located on Newport's Bellevue Avenue, the boutiqe boasts a "meticulously renovated" storefront that captures the feeling of an "old-school, 19th century apothecary."
Founder Brenda Brock, of Texas, first sold her all-natural products for face and body in Rhode Island in 1999. Since then, her 100 percent organic products have been used and sold at prestigious spas and resorts around the world. Time Magazine recently named Farmaesthetics as one of its "Green Style & Design 100," and treehugger.com named the company as the number one skincare line.
The Farmaesthetics store offers the company's entire line of products, as well as limited-edition and unique items. The Farmaesthetics Treatment Boutique opened in summer 2009, and coming in 2011 will be a space for treatments and an open forum called the Holistic Exchange Series. Springtime hours are currently Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10am - 6pm, and facial and massage appointments can be arranged by telephone.
