Waiting on conformation from winner.
In 2007, with a passion for pure ingredients that are nourishing to the body, Ashley and Minka started Golden Path Alchemy. After searching for products that they felt comfortable using and coming up empty handed they took the responsibility upon themselves.
"We started our company ... because we wanted to create a product where we knew the ingredients were pure, made with intention and care, and reflected a quality and freshness that we had not yet found in other products."
That is exactly what I have been looking for! I can't explain the excitement that i felt when I first read about Golden Path Alchemy! The combination of Chinese herbs, western herbs, essential oils, flower essences and gem elixirs makes powerful healing products. Everything is made in small batches with natural, local, and organic ingredients to ensure the freshness and potency of each product. Golden Path Alchemy is a holistic, handmade, herbal skin care company that cares about you and the environment.

I had the great pleasure of reviewing 4 of Golden Path Alchemy's wonderful products!Illuminating Cleansing Grains:
Cost: $22 (2 oz)
A great cleanser for winter! After speaking with Ashley, we determined that I have dry skin in the winter time. This cleanser features the healing powers of Oats, Barley and Wheat Germ. Oats gently exfoliate and prevent wrinkles. Barley works as an antioxidant to keep skin supple. Wheat Germ deeply nourishes the skin. I love the fresh feel after using this product. My skin never felt tight or dry. The barely there scent of frankincense is intoxicating and reminiscent of royalty.
Refine Healing Herbal Serum:
Cost: $46 (2 oz)
This serum has 15 healing herbs to make a moisturizer that keeps skin hydrated. It doesn't leave a weird residue and completely absorbs into the skin. I loved the way this serum felt; very lightweight. The smell was wonderful. I'm not one for overpowering smells of any kind. The serum has just the right amount of earthiness with floral undertones. The base is made from aloe vera gel which is packed with proteins, minerals, amino acids and all things good for your skin. The great thing about these serums is that very little is needed to be effective.
Cost: $53 (2 oz)
This oil based moisturizer has rose, geranium and borage seed oil to help dry or mature skin cope. The sweet smell of roses from the rosehip oil helps restore that youthful looking skin and aids in treating dehydrated, wrinkled or aging skin. You would think that an oil based moisturizer would be greasy or heavy. Not so with this carefully blended serum. It helped with the dry skin around my forehead and chin. Never did the serum feel heavy or greasy; just hydrating. You can also use the serum to reduce scars and stretch marks.
Kiwi Coconut Exfoliating Mask:
Cost: $36 (2 oz)
This mask smelled like these key lime cookies that I make. The mask smelled so good, I wanted to take a bite! (Please don't eat the products). It reminded me of a tropical getaway (which was what I needed the first time I used it). The Kiwi Coconut Mask is a very gentle exfoliater. It doesn't scratch or scrape the skin but organic sugar and coconut work well to brighten it. Per the suggestion on the Golden Path Alchemy website, I applied this mask before I got into the shower and rinsed it off my skin before I got out. I would suggest this to everyone! My skin felt so much healthier and softer!
