Magic Dust: an annotated guide to the ultimate powdered exfoliator

Magic Dust

Julie Clark is Toronto’s high priestess of organic beauty: her line, Province Apothecary, is carried by retail heavyweights Urban Outfitters and Madewell. Here, a peek at what goes into her bestselling powdered exfoliator.

Oats
They’re grown on small organic farms in Saskatchewan.

Green tea
Clark orders it from a local herbal dispensary that works closely with farmers in China.
Lentils
They’re grown in the prairies and ground into flour by a small mill in B.C.
Blue violet flowers
They’re brought in from farms in Albania by the same dispensary that supplies Clark with tea.
Flaxseed
It, too, comes from organic farms in Saskatchewan.
Lavender
Clark picks some of it herself in Niagara, but she also uses organic lavender from France.
