Our climate is high and dry. Here in Southern New Mexico, the landscape is painted with a palette of light. Adobe, sand and clay are set aglow by the sun. Prickly pear and desert rose bask in warmth and beauty. There’s a powerful radiance to light in the desert.
Where we come from, light is everything. It inspires us with its clarity, transparency, lucidity and radiance. We admire those qualities within a person. But they also embody beauty on the outside. Our goal is to reflect that luminous glow, that radiant light, onto the skin. That’s how Round Barn Apothecary was born. The result is pure beauty.
Our dedication to the best, sustainably sourced ingredients means 70 - 97% of our ingredients are ‘certified’ organic and our products are completely void of harmful chemicals and fillers.
Our Founder, Jen Scott
As a steward of two hot spring resorts in northern New Mexico—Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa and Sunrise Springs Spa Resort— Jen Scott has developed an intimate knowledge of skincare with almost 20 years of experience in the spa and beauty industry. Her incredibly high standards when it comes to what goes on her skin and into her waters inspired her to create a skincare line of her own.
Jen, a self-proclaimed recovering skincare snob, wanted to create natural skincare products that were consistently effective and honored the natural beauty & resilience of her surrounding environment.
Working with a team of certified chemists and sustainable farms throughout the Southwest, Jen developed an eco-conscious, organic skincare line that was not only devoid of harmful chemicals, fragrances, and colorants — it worked.
Round Barn Apothecary is an ode to triumph over extreme conditions and our own natural beauty.
