Argan Oil, which is used in Pharmacopia's retail Mint Argan Collection and Hyatt Hotels Argan Oil Collection, is a natural tree oil that comes from the nut of the argan tree, indigenous to Morroco. Argan oil is rich in antioxidants and has wonderful aromatherapeutic qualities.
Argan is not related to Argon, a noble gas that is the third-most abundant gas in earth's atmosphere.

We currently only ship our products to the 50 United States and Canada. We plan to expand to Europe in 2023.
Yes, as part of Pharmacopia’s mission, we only use plant-based ingredients from natural, organic, vegan or sustainable sources to nourish and hydrate skin and hair.
Up until recently, our Lix Elixir lip balm contained beeswax, so we decided to reformulate this product. Look for our new and improved (and vegan!) Lip Elixir in early 2023.
Pharmacopia products contain certified organic ingredients in varying levels. Each product calls them out in the ingredients list.
Phenoxyethanol is a well-known preservative that has been safely used in cosmetics for years. We use it at a very low percentage (below 1%). It is considered safe by the European Union at concentrations below 1%.
Customers have asked why some of our products (including Citrus Shampoo) are rated a 5 on EWG. We were surprised to see this rating too, because most of our ingredients are rated a 3 or less. EWG considers Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange peel essential oil) an irritant. That is the only ingredient in our ingredients list that is rated a 5. We are generally supporters of the work that the EWG does around toxins in personal care, but this rating does not seem fair or accurate. We'll let our customers decide for themselves.
Some of our hotel products contain sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) is a surfactant that is responsible for the lather or bubbles in a shampoo or body wash. It can be manufactured from plant or petroleum sources (ours is plant derived). It has a low hazard score of 3 from the Environmental Working Group (EWG). There has been concern about this ingredient because of possible contamination during manufacturing. There is no evidence linking SLES to cancer or infertility. Because there is controversy behind this common ingredient, we removed it from our retail products.
Pharmacopia Hotel Collection
Pharmacopia retail products are a little different in scent and ingredients than our hotel products. Our retail products are sulfate-free (sulfate-free tends to be a little gentler on hair) and the hotel collection includes sodium laureth sulfate.
Our hotel products, such as our Hyatt Hotels Argan Oil Collection, are custom formulations exclusive to each hotel brand.
While not exactly the same, our Pharmacopia Citrus Collection is very similar to the Best Western exclusive citrus formulation and is available for retail purchase.
Pharmacopia Black Tea and Fig products are exclusive to Best Western Plus hotels and are not available for retail purchase.
The Element hotel amenities are exclusive to the hotel and are not sold on our website.

Not at this time.
Due to supply chain issues during COVID-19, we were forced to turn to alternative pump suppliers to fulfill our orders. Unfortunately, those pumps were unreliable and not the same quality of our standard pump. We have corrected the issue and all new products are being finished with a stronger, more reliable pump. We still have the substandard pumps on some of our inventoried products. If you receive a product with a poor functioning or broken pump, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send out a replacement pump to you right away.
