On episode #72 of The Vine, PMP speaks to Sandra Statz, Founder and CEO of A.P. Chem®, a science-forward, age-decelerating, skincare brand formulated with curated combinations of classic and proven Alt-Pharma™ ingredients for optimal skin renewal.

Sandra, a beauty industry executive who worked with brands including La Mer, Guerlain and Clinique, was diagnosed with an autoimmune inflammatory disease and found mental health healing through psychedelic medicine. Her personal journey parlayed into building a brand with a mission to not only advocate for but also include the healing ingredients in medicinal mushrooms to build her new skincare line. Sandra is also a board member of The Ketamine Fund and KetaMD.

Learn more about the "Cool Nerds" behind A.P. Chem®, and how they are formulating products led by NYC dermatologist, Dr. Sherwin Parikh, inspired by his upbringing as a first-generation Indian American. His family's Ayurvedic practices and Eastern beliefs inspire his guiding principles for skin health – in which food is medicine and health is wellness.
