ARCANA SKIN


Arcana is the Latin word for "mystery, secret" and here stands for the exploration of the secrets of the plant world. The word gained notoriety through the alchemists in the sixth century when they explored the great mysteries of plants, minerals and animals - the Arcana of nature. At that time, the Western world was transitioning from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and the desire for knowledge, both spiritual and physical, was being intensely pursued. The alchemists of the early period already understood that all plants and minerals had their own Spirit, i.e. their own "essence", which could be extracted for healing and used for physical healing. This knowledge was passed down through symbols and then eventually through language.

With one foot still in that time when unlimited potential was attributed to nature, and the other foot in today's world of longing for self-care and reunion with the earth and its nature, ARCANA represents a modern ritual through an ancient historical view. ARCANA thus creates for all those who stand on the threshold between the rational, real world and the very own nature with its partly metaphysical plant power. The products are the result of the transmission of intuitive knowledge from the plant kingdom, the beauty of artistic representation and mystical landscapes of Scotland.


ARCANA chooses only the highest quality ingredients with a focus on plants that are eitherwild harvested or created through biodynamic farming. The ingredient selection is largely driven by the biodiversity of the areas that influenced the brand's founder, Erin Hammond - Scotland and the Southern Appalachians (North America). The formulations of the products are deliberately full of dualities - common (in the sense of "everyday") herb paired with the most expensive "actives", simple home remedies from natural medicine mixed with exotic plant oils. This makes up the complex universe of ARCANA, based on deep-rooted intention and knowledge.


ARCANA describes its compositions as works of art in which each ingredient has its benefit, whether that benefit is physical or energetic in origin. For the company, this makes the point of stating key ingredients or key active ingredients meaningless. ARCANA does not see itself as part of an industry but rather as the transmitter of an ancient heritage, rich herbal traditions, ancient history and living craftsmanship. ARCANA takes seriously the responsibility we have as human beings living on a vulnerable earth and its fragile ecosystem. Packaging is produced with low toxicity and no waste of resources with the least amount of plastic possible. Cardboard boxes and labels are biodegradable without plastic lamination.


The products are vegan, non-animal tested, essential oil free, responsibly and sustainably sourced and largely biodynamic.
