Monastery is dedicated to crafting skincare formulations with the finest ingredients nature can provide. Monastery's mission is to support the skin's natural repair and rejuvenation systems, helping it heal without irritation or interference. Every product is created in-house at Monastery's California headquarters, reflecting their commitment to quality and their appreciation for the natural healing properties of their ingredients. By producing everything themselves, Monastery ensures that what goes into each bottle is a true expression of their dedication to healing and their love for natural skincare.

Athena's Natural Legacy

Athena Hewett, a master esthetician with over 20 years of experience, founded Monastery out of a desire to create skincare products that truly heal rather than harm. Athena's journey into natural skincare began with childhood visits to Greece, where she learned about the healing power of herbs from her maternal grandmother. These experiences instilled in her a deep appreciation for working with the body's natural processes. Frustrated by the adverse effects of many commercial skincare products on her clients, Athena was inspired to develop her own line. Along with her team, personally sources, formulates, and tests every product, ensuring that each one meets the highest standards of quality and effectiveness.

Timeless Beauty Secrets

Monastery was born from Athena Hewett’s vision to revolutionize skincare by returning to nature’s purest ingredients. With a deep understanding of the skin’s natural ability to heal and rejuvenate, Athena sought to create products that would enhance these processes rather than hinder them. Monastery's formulations are crafted from the finest plant oils and distillations, sourced after months or even years of meticulous research. The brand's dedication to quality is evident in every product, from the Rose Cleansing Oil to the Attar Floral Repair Balm. This commitment to purity and timelessness evokes the ancient traditions of Greek, Merlin-era, and Egyptian remedies.
