It’s all natural, baby. After a decade studying and practicing skincare and esthetics, founder Athena Hewett realized that technology had not improved on her grandmother’s holistic recipes for purifying and healing skin. In 2011, Athena opened a skincare studio in San Francisco to treat her patients with different methods of oil cleansing, water free moisturizing and alcohol and salt free skincare. Alongside her practice, Athena introduced a collection of natural skincare — a blend of the best nature has to offer, with absolute essential oils carefully chosen for their non-irritating properties. Each ingredient is of the purest form and highest quality. A tightly curated product range, made in small batches at Monastery's studio in San Francisco. No salts. No alcohol. No fillers.Purify and heal your skin with Monastery.
