JASMINE URZIA, HERBALIST AND FOUNDER OF RADICE APOTHECARY

You don’t have to talk with Jasmine Urzia to know one thing for certain—the girl is not American even if she`s living in New York. Her Italian charm enters the room before she does. Jasmine has been perfecting her craft since childhood, when she assisted her grandmother Liliana in her pharmacy, called Archangelica, located in Rome. After years of studying natural pharmaceuticals and working as an herbalist, Urzia began concocting her all-natural creams by hand. Every product is made with so much attention to detail, from the consistency of the creams to their effect on the skin to the weight of the bottles she sells them in. She`s an absolute perfectionist and that`s why here products are just amazing and once you tried, you`ll fall in love.
