We’d be nothing without our relationships with our farmers, growers, and producers. Follow us on our journeys to Morocco, Ghana, Chile, and northeaster Washington State to meet to farmers, producers, and land that create your skin care.
Evan's Journey to the Chilean Wilderness
The story of one of our most important ingredients — rosehip seed oil. And our journey into the Chilean wilderness to witness the process of wild-harvesting this miraculous rose fruit. It also goes into the myriad benefits of rosehip on the skin, and the quality you should look for when shopping for rosehip seed oil.
Through Evan’s decades of experience with the skin, we have found hydrosols to be the single most transformative element someone can incorporate into their skin care ritual.
American Family Farm Revival
Witness our relationship with the dedicated farmers and distillers who create these beautiful plant waters — and who are both partners to the land and allies to the plants.
Al Amal Women's Co-Operative
Evan and her team visited Morocco this past spring and journeyed into the Anti Atlas mountains to visit the Al Amal Co-operative. Al Amal is a small, all women's co-op who produce the exceptional, artisan, all hand pressed and certified organic argan oil we use in many of our products. Our purpose was two fold, first we were there to meet the women of the Al Amal, and second to celebrate the planting of over four hundred ARGAN saplings that we helped to finance, assuring the future of these women, their children and village.
Women's Gold ~ Our Shea Butter Story
In January 2014, Evan visited northern Ghana with key members of the evanhealy team. There, in a small village, she met the women of a shea butter collective, and over three days watched and participated in the incredibly labor-intensive process that goes into transforming raw unadulterated shea nut into the rich, creamy yellow butter that plays such a central role in so many of our products. For these women shea butter production is their sole livelihood and it plays a key role in the economic vitality of the whole community.
At evanhealy we take pride in supporting the Village through various projects.Your purchase of evanhealy products plays a real part in supporting self-sufficiency of this community.

Evan on holistic skin care
Evan discusses her philosophy of holistic skin care based on restoration and regeneration. Restoring the skin’s ability to self-regulate and regeneration of skin tissue at a cellular level. Other themes include: the skin breathes; long-term skin health; the less you interfere with the skin’s own ability to achieve balance the better; and the false promise of the magic bullet. As a holistic aesthetician Evan does not rely on cosmeceuticals and other invasive treatments such as AHAs and fruit acids, which dissolve the epidermal layer of the skin. Rather Evan borrows from the wisdom of nature visible in her ingredients. Evan has 20-plus years experience & wisdom in natural skin care working with artisan growers & distillers, using the whole wisdom of the plant.
Evan on 'the skin breathes
Evan discusses ‘the skin breathes’ and how to restore moisture & hydration through her Oil Serums and Facial Tonic Hydrosols (‘oil and water’). Evan describes the skin as ‘little lungs’ being made up of thousands of tiny dermal pores inhaling nutritive substances and exhaling metabolic impurities; underlining her belief that products used on the skin should not contain synthetic ingredients, which clog the pores.
Evan on Clay
Evan exfoliates the skin with clays, mixed with active ingredients, to draw out metabolic impurities, to detoxify. Clay has been used for millennium; it is alive, a product of the Earth’s crust, full of minerals and silica – the building blocks of hair, skin and nails. Clay draws out dead skin cells, absorbs excess oil, and leaves the skin polished and refined.
Evan on Shea
Evan rebuilds the epidermal layer of damaged skin with her Whipped Shea Butters, which she describes as ‘the ultimate protection for skin’. A product of Equatorial Africa, they are handmade, certified organic & unrefined. Enlivened with gentle flower essences, they can be used as a daytime moisturizer or as a cream treatment mask.
