Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy isn’t your grandparents’ pharmacy. It’s a holistic retail experience that offers prescription services, high quality vitamins and supplements, and natural skin care and cosmetics that actually work. You could call it your health and beauty shopping heaven.
At Pharmaca you’ll find pharmacists who treat customers like a member of the family, offering expert advice, and helping with insurance questions and doctor communications. You’ll also find medicine cabinet essentials like bandages, pain relievers, and allergy medicines—just like any pharmacy. While you’re here you can also pick up unique gifts, fun greeting cards, and organic snacks.
The cornerstone of Pharmaca’s unique model is the fact that each store is staffed with licensed practitioners—naturopaths, herbalists, dieticians, and estheticians—that are always available to offer guidance on the best solution, whether it be occasional insomnia, indigestion, or just the need for a new shade of lipstick. The solutions are all naturally effective, passing strict quality assurance tests so that you know that the products on Pharmaca’s shelves have already been well vetted.
Pharmaca’s quality supplements help fill the nutritional gaps that many of us experience due to poor diet, medication use, food allergies, and more. While nutritious food is best, it just may not be enough.
For example, according to the CDC, 90 million Americans are low in vitamin D, 30 million of us are deficient in B6, 18 million in B12, ~16 million in vitamin C and, for the first time, women between the ages of 20 and 39 are borderline iodine insufficient (see the CDC’s 2012 Report on the Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition for more information).
Pharmaca’s expert practitioners can help assess your nutrient needs and identify the best form of vitamin or supplement for you. Through ongoing training to learn about cutting-edge ingredients, the latest research-based science and regular product education, these practitioners are ideally equipped to offer customized advice for each and every customer. Their presence and expertise also makes it possible for Pharmaca to offer professional brands of supplements not often found outside a doctor’s office.
Why Natural Beauty?
Experts believe that 60% of what goes on your skin goes in your body. That means that being mindful of the ingredients in your skin care and cosmetics is almost as important as your food and supplement choices. That’s why Pharmaca’s beauty products use nature’s most powerful ingredients to nourish your body, inside and out.
In the collection you’ll find skin care made with nourishing oils from the African baobab tree and sea buckthorn bush, and cosmetics tinted with pure minerals and fruit juices. Pharmaca also carefully monitors products to ensure they contain only the ingredients you want, and nothing you don’t—like parabens, phthalates, PEGs, sulfates, petroleum... you get the idea.
At Pharmaca you’ll find natural beauty products from companies like Vapour Organic Beauty, jane iredale, Juice Beauty, Sanitas, Jurlique and more—celebrated by estheticians, makeup artists, and customers alike. Come let our professional beauty specialists help you find the perfect new serum, sunscreen or foundation!
