PHARMACOPIA® COLLABORATES WITH HYATT REGENCY ON EXCLUSIVE ARGAN OIL AMENITIES COLLECTION

MILL VALLEY, CA (March 11, 2019)—Pharmacopia® Natural Bodycare is pleased to introduce a new Argan Oil amenities collection, created exclusively for Hyatt Regency hotels and resorts. Featuring vegan and cruelty-free formulas in 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) packaging, the better-for-you bath and body care range is also free from parabens, phthalates, synthetic ingredients and harsh chemicals. The collection launches in Hyatt Regency properties worldwide this month with distribution by Hunter Amenities International.

“Responsible sourcing is part of Hyatt’s environmental sustainability platform, as is reducing our environmental impact related to disposable plastics,” said Heather Geisler, vice president, global brands, Hyatt. “In considering amenity for the Hyatt Regency brand, we felt strongly that the right company would help us deliver a stress-free, energizing guest experience while also being environmentally friendly and sustainable. In this case, Pharmacopia aligned perfectly.” 

Moroccan inspired, with essences of green tea, peppermint and cardamom, the collection of Body Wash, Body Lotion, Shampoo, Conditioner and Bar Soap offers Hyatt Regency guests around the world a retreat from the hustle and bustle of life and a touch of the exotic. “The scent evokes languid afternoons sipping green tea in a shaded Mediterranean garden-- slightly sweet, refreshing and a little bit intoxicating,” said Pharmacopia founder, Lisa Levin.

Complementing argan oil, which offers superb skin and hair-boosting benefits, olive leaf and green tea extracts together deliver moisturizing and protective properties. Customer testimonials unanimously tout Pharmacopia body washes as gently cleansing without stripping, body lotions as lightly moisturizing and softening, and shampoos and conditioners as shine enhancing.

Pharmacopia, whose bright, modern apothecary packaging brought an element of style to an otherwise earthy category, was among the early crusaders of the natural products movement. During this time when natural and organic products were emerging at premium price points largely reserved for luxury shoppers, Pharmacopia was intentionally and thoughtfully positioned as an affordable luxury. “Our goal from the beginning was to put healthier ingredients within reach for the masses,” said Levin. Pharmacopia’s hallmarks have always been natural, organic and vegan, biodegradable plant-based ingredients with antioxidant and aromatherapeutic benefits.”

After nearly 10 years as a hotel amenities line, Pharmacopia® recently introduced its Citrus and Verbena collections in bigger bottles for the home on Amazon.com. The Argan Oil collection is expected to follow later this spring.

Pharmacopia is the brainchild of Lisa Levin, a designer by trade, whose interest in herbology and the healing benefits of nature led her to harvest the abundant herbs from her garden in Mill Valley, California and transform them into nurturing, fragrant potions, soaks and creams. Her signature scents and lightweight textures are still, 20 years later, delighting customers across the globe.
