The Blackbird Apothecary’s been around for about a year and a half now, and it’s undergone all sorts of changes since it’s inauguration. There are, however, a couple of things that’ve managed to hang around for all this time. We’re referring of course to our good friends from both Baxter and Malin + Goetz.

Baxter of California was started in 1965 after Baxter Finley moved to LA and had a tough time finding a functional masculine moisturizer. So he created his own, Super Shape, one of the first lotions created specifically for man. This soon led to a full line of products, giving Baxter a chokehold on the men’s grooming market long before its modern resurgence.

Baxter of California Super Shape SPF 15

DETAILS: This super shape hydrating lotion for men is perfect for normal to dry skin and offers UVA and UVB protection with SPF 15. Use daily to moisturize and defend skin from the harmful effects of the sun and environments.



Malin + Goetz, or Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz, came from mixed backgrounds in cosmetics, grooming, and design when they joined forces to create an easy, natural, and versatile skincare line. Using a two-step treatment to effectively balance skin’s pH levels, and providing special attention to sensitive skin and hair-types, Malin + Goetz offers a practical upgrade from the irritating, chemical-filled shampoos and face washes you see in most drugstores today.

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer

DETAILS: This oil-free, residue-free moisturizer synthesizes natural Vitamins E and B5 and soothing Chamomile with absorbent fatty acids. Gently and effectively hydrates and ph balances all skin types, unlike traditionally greasy pore-clogging oils, for an intensely nourishing treatment, reducing epidermal irritation for the most sensitive of skin. Perfect foundation for immediate make-up application. Natural fragrance and color. Easily integrated into daily maintenance and prevention regimen. Active Ingredients: Glycerin and sodium pca hydrate. Hyaluronic acid and vitamins e and b5 nourish. Allantoin, chamomile, and milk soothe and calm.



Now that you know a bit about these awesome lines, we can get to the icing on the cake. For a limited time, each Apothecary purchase will be accompanied by a large selection of samples from either of these lines!

For him, we’ve got shave cream, after-shave, moisturizer, and face-wash, all from Baxter of California.

For her, we have Malin + Goetz’ face cleanser, moisturizer, detox face-mask, and cilantro hair conditioner.

We know it’s tough to commit to a new body product without first trying it. So don’t! Come in, pick up some samples, and let us know how they work. That way you’ll be able to try some things, see if they make a difference, and make an informed decision from there. No strings attached.
