Based out of Vancouver, BC, Phytosurgence was born from curious minds determined to make skincare and makeup a luxurious, effective, and affordable ritual for every day life. We aim to make high performance products, inspired by ingredients and pigments found in nature, but based on science.
We are a completely self funded operation with no backers or external help. Everything from formula development, production, packaging design, order fulfillment is done by our tiny team of two. Yep - there are a lot of sleepless nights and restless weekends. We are super active on Instagram with bringing you behind the scenes - so follow us there!
We are also proudly Asian and LGBTQ+ owned.
transparent & conscious beauty
We believe transparent and conscious beauty need to come to the forefront of the industry.
Transparency to us means doing away with the smoke and mirrors commonly seen in the beauty industry. For one, we feel using fear mongering and scare tactics to sell products under claims such as "non-toxic" or "clean" leads to misinformed consumerism, which we are standing up to.
We also aim to be transparent by being upfront with our customers with our product formulation, design, and selling process so everyone can see what goes on behind the scenes from thought conception down to the product being in your hands as a small indie brand. So if a launch is delayed, or if we don't offer the metal compact with a biodegradable pan featuring wildcrafted ingredients only - you'll know why.
Being conscious. Skincare and makeup is not a necessity. Use up what you have in your collection first before mindlessly purchasing our (or other) products. We put too much time and effort into our products to be left forgotten and lost in a sea of items in your bathroom! We aren't going anywhere, so no rush. Additionally, we encourage everyone to be conscious of the brands they support - the causes they stand up for, the morals they have, and what communities they lend their voice to. Your money, voice, and support has power beyond just acquiring a beauty product.
