Although professionally applied, organic beauty products can make you look like a goddess, poorly applied beeswax will only make you look like someone with their head stuck inside a hornet's nest. Get the benefits without the bees with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of natural health and beauty products at Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy. Choose between the Los Gatos and Menlo Park locations.
Pharmaca's cornucopia brims over with organic beauty products, vitamins, and positive reinforcement for every conceivable part of the body, broken down by brand and the condition they treat. All-natural cosmetics, such as the plant-based Dr. Hauschka Concealer ($19.96), and brain-boosting vitamins, such as the Jarrow Formulas Brain Boost ($16.86), pack a feel-good punch that will keep interior and exterior organs humming along and dominating trivia contests. Bedraggled bodies can soak up a pastiche of goodness with Dr. Hauschka Lavender Bath ($26.36), a bathing powerhouse of pure lavender oil and sulfated castor oil designed to calm redness and promote peaceful sleep.
Pharmaca is also a full-service pharmacy where naturopathic doctors, herbalists, and aestheticians dole out sage advice, such as what dishes taste better with sage. Transfer an active prescription to Pharmaca when using your Groupon and receive an additional $30 credit at the store.
Green-themed cleaning products, ethically sourced chocolates and snacks, and cooler-world-minded gifts, such as the biodegradable jute tote Apple & Bee ($15.99), ensures that you can stock up on all the essentials without figuratively pushing Mother Nature down the stairs.

When people are ill, they usually either make a doctor's appointment or lie in bed and wait it out. Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy has created a third option. Visits to its full-service pharmacies, which are scattered across the western U.S., are more casual than a doctor's visit but less passive than bed rest. Each location's team of health experts, including credentialed pharmacists, naturopathic doctors, herbalists, nutritionists, and more, consult with customers—no appointment needed.
But Pharmaca aims to serve its customers every day, not just on sick days. Its stores have been drawing droves of clients since 2000, partly because they meet so many needs in just one spot. In addition to a full-service pharmacy, Pharmaca offers organic and food-based vitamins from MegaFood and New Chapter; professional-grade skin care and cosmetics from Jane Iredale, Sanitas, and Dr. Hauschka; and therapeutic-grade supplements from Metagenics and Thorne Research. Customers can also choose from an assortment of homeopathic remedies, herbal formulations, medical supplies, toiletries, gifts, and fair-trade chocolates.
