Garden of Wisdom
Prescott, Arizona gardenofwisdom.com

Garden of Wisdom, founded by Markey Martin, is a veritable treasure trove for the skincare junkie. With raw ingredients, finished products as well as tons of information and a very supportive, active forum, Markey aims at both educating customers about their skin as well as addressing skincare concerns with her beautifully formulated products. 

 

We have been customers of Garden of Wisdom for almost a decade and thoroughly enjoy geeking out on all the ingredient information on the website. 

 

When one of the co-founders of Boxwalla was pregnant (and her skin was feeling congested) she was looking for gentle yet effective alternatives to chemical exfoliation. The wonderfully knowledgable Jen (who helps Markey at Garden of Wisdom) recommended The Pineapple/Red Wine Exfoliating gel. And it was love! We included it in the April Beauty Box along with one of our long time favorites, the very hydrating Blue Mallow Hyaluronic Serum. Also include was a sneak peak of Garden of Wisdom's new  Lip treatment with ingredients like manuka honey, ceramides and peptides which are deeply hydrating and healing.

 

We also love the many raw ingredients that are offered by Garden of wisdom especially their Camellia Oil (Oleifera and Sinesis), Argan Oil, and the wonderfully purifying Moor Mud. Their Wickedly rich McDreamy face cream and Whipped Honey cleanser are also wonderful.

What's your favorite thing about being a small business owner?

Having the privilege to work with my kids and the ability to change our product line 

based on customer feedback. Can you imagine the expense incurred for the big

companies to do this? It won't happen.

 

Where can we find you when you aren't working on Garden of Wisdom?

Great question. You would find me feeding chickens, dogs, cats while I simultaneously watch my favorite television shows. haha This is my drug of choice. Too many great shows. I love to read about skin care as well.

 

What is one super power you'd love to have?

I would love to be Intuitive Woman with the gift of healing. My daughter's Lyme Disease and my husband's Cancer would come first and then start with family, friends and the universe.

A fun fact about you?

I showed Arabian horses for most of my young life. I left school early and moved to Lacey's Arabian Center in Northern, CA ... to start my apprenticeship. What an amazing time in my life.

The next place you'd love to travel to?

Ohhhh, perhaps Croatia .. I love the architecture there. The structures are so close together ... enchanting.

 

What's your favorite skincare ingredient?

I am turning 60 soon, so antiaging ingredients are my choice. Right now I would say hyaluronic acid and Argireline. Enough said.
