Staiy wins silver and welcomes the ethical skincare brand Argentum Apothecary to our family.
Silver is a constant throughout human history, ancient and modern, an enduring spiritual symbol and a life-preserving essential. This metal has always been valuable to us, thought of as feminine in nature, and considered to possess magical qualities. Its name derives from Old English ‘seolfor’ and its chemical symbol from the Latin ‘argentum’. Strength of Ancients, sacred element of Alchemy, salve of Healers, silver truly is a precious metal and the essence of Argentum’s unique and powerful skincare.
The history of ARgENTUM Apothecary began with its founder, Joy Isaacs, who was born and raised in South Africa. Growing up, she would always see her mother treating skin problems with colloidal silver spray. When she was a teenager and her skin started showing signs of acne, colloidal silver helped heal her skin. A few years later, Isaacs left South Africa and moved to London, where she continued to rely on silver to care for her entire family, including her three children.
