Mary Spinelli

Hyssop Beauty Apothecary

Mary is a vegan, Reiki healer, garden enthusiast, and animal lover. After becoming increasingly frustrated while reading product labels, she made it her mission to create an authentic natural skincare company.

In September of 2017, Mary launched Hyssop Beauty Apothecary, and a few months later in December, she created and sold out of her first batch of holiday lip scrub and balm sets. By 2018, Hyssop Beauty Apothecary’s handmade skin care products were sold at local farmers markets throughout northern New Jersey. The business grew quickly, and it was time to move production into a commercial space. Mary opened Hyssop Beauty Apothecary’s retail storefront in Nutley, New Jersey in December of 2019. The retail storefront includes a production space where each item is handcrafted in small batches using artisan methods and specifically chosen organic ingredients whenever available. Hyssop Beauty Apothecary’s products have been featured in Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair.

Mary is committed to creating the smallest environmental footprint possible and she evaluates the company’s sustainability practices regularly. Hyssop Beauty Apothecary is a woman-owned and operated sustainable business registered with the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry. The company is registered with PETA as a cruelty-free company. Mary believes in community and regularly holds fundraisers for various local organizations.
