Named after her great grandmother who ran the first apothecary in Cali, Columbia, Giovanna Campagna created Joaquina Botánica as a tribute to the natural beauty and self-care rituals of Latin American women.
Joaquina Botánica embraces the vibrant, energetic vibe of the tropics, marrying exotic, natural botanicals with clinical actives to illuminate skin’s natural radiance. Nutrient-dense superfruits imported from South America–cacay, camu camu and sacha inchi–are liberally used for their antioxidant rich profiles. Super hydrators like hyaluronic acid help keep skin moisturized and plump with a coveted tropical glow. Oils are used as a delivery system, keeping the level of the ingredients at their highest.
“There was nothing that spoke to the natural, luxe ingredients, the dewy skin of the tropics or the way we are taught from a young age to care for our skin. It is a cultural thing. How to live, how to prioritize. We age well because we take care of our skin at every age.”
~ Giovanna Campagna, Joaquina Botánica Founder
This is healthy, natural, lush, exotic and sensual skincare from the tropics, with love. As the seasons change and weather turns cooler, we invite you try a DIY ritual that nurtures and preserves that summer glow for as long as possible. Here’s how:
Deep Clean with Josh Rosebrook Essential Balm Cleanse, a green, balmy emulsifying cleanser in a base of meadowfoam seed oil, balancing tamanu oil and toning green tea and mineral-rich blue-green algae. Apply to dry skin, massage, then emulsify with water to a milky white consistency, rinse with warm water, pat dry.
Mist Away with Joaquina Botánica Calendula + Peptides Hydrating Essence, a hydrating, inflammation-calming combination of calendula, rose water, glycerin and hyaluronic acid that instantly plumps and soothes to deliver firming and brightening benefits. Hold 8-10 inches away from face, neck and décolleté and mist away.
Glow On with Joaquina Botánica Orquídea + Vitamin C Hydrating Glow Oil. A natural antidote to dry, dull skin, signs of aging, uneven skin tone and texture, and dark spots, this hydrating glow oil also features retinol-alternative bakuchiol to encourage skin regeneration. Just 6-8 drops of this naturally aromatic oil will melt into your skin for a bare-faced beautiful glow.
Get Some Shut Eye with Violets are Blue Eye-Luminate Gel Serum, a gentle gel-to-cream treatment featuring mallow, licorice, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. Apply a drop on your ring finger, tap gently around the orbital bone and smooth into skin.
Awake renewed with Blüh Alchemy Nocturnal Repair, your last step before sleeping. Spread 2 pumps over your favorite face oil or serum. Extend your application to the neck and décolleté if desired, even the backs of the hands. This creamy, hydrating serum works overnight to protect and perfect your skin around the clock.
