ASHLEY BUCHANAN, FOUNDER + MAKER OF BUCA BOTANICALS
BUCA BOTANICALS is a natural skincare + beauty brand based here in Austin, Texas. Inspired by her own skin care journey of 5+ years suffering from allergic reactions, along with a connection to the Earth + a love of nature, Ashley Buchanan founded the brand in her Austin kitchen in 2017. With the intention of gifting products to the world that would help bring balance to the body’s largest organ - the skin - as an entry to harmonizing the totality of body, mind + spirit. Also with the mindset of spreading the importance of cultivating conscious skincare + beauty rituals that help bring you into deeper alignment of body, mind + soul. It is our greatest pleasure to spread love + joy onto others. At BUCA, we celebrate the intrinsic beauty - that special glow - the magic that lies within each + every one of us.
“I believe that beauty radiates through a harmonious synergy between our inner + outer selves. I see natural ingredients as catalysts for change that help restore physical, emotional + spiritual well-being. I created BUCA after struggling with my own skin issues + reactions to toxins found in beauty products. With my yogic + holistic care background, I learned how to heal my skin + bring it into balance from the inside-out. This led to my passion for treating all skin from within, with products that help you feel + look good in the skin you were born in. It's my intention to inspire others into discovering their own true beauty through clean, plant-powered products + cultivating conscious self-love rituals that nurture the skin, mind, body + soul. A lot of my love goes into handcrafting each product + I truly hope you have a magical, magical experience with BUCA!"
