A word from Founder:
Stevie McCord, CIDESCO Esthetician, Herbalist & Aromatherapist
I have always appreciated all that nature has to offer. No matter where I travel, I connect with nature which inspires me to not only enjoy spas all over but to ask questions to learn about the local plant life so that I may incorporate my discoveries and experiences into my facial rituals within my treatment room to create an ever evolving experience for my clients.
From this originates the desire to create an environment that embraces the power of nature interwoven with science. I have worked with many clients, friends and family members, who struggled with the ill-effects of environmental stressors on their skin. From rosacea to severe eczema to extremely blemished skin concerns, I was inspired to create a natural, yet result-oriented and science based line to help alleviate skin concerns. With a firm grasp on cosmetics chemistry, studies in herbology, and being a passionate aromatherapist, I was encouraged to embark on this mission whilst continuing to care for my clients in my private practice. As an acclaimed award winning facialist, I am very thankful and will show eternal gratitude to all who I have attracted and all who have traveled from all over the nation to see me. This collection was created out of love and with their skin care journey in mind. I have an interactive mixing bar to create customized skin and products along with in-house formulated organic mineral makeup. I am and will always try new combinations and strive to create not only a unique experience but products specially crafted for each individual as we are all unique.
I have enjoyed being an educator in the industry for over twenty years, CIDESCO Diplomat, Massage Therapist & Bodyworker, Reiki Practitioner, and a diplomat of The College of Holistic Studies I have personally trained thousands of estheticians, spa professionals, a small collection of Indie CBD companies and have worked for many major professional brands while traveling internationally to train leading spas. With European and Indonesian-inspired techniques, Ayurvedic Practices, clinical experience with top leaders in the dermatology field in the Greater Houston area and beyond, I created the Spa Rituals offered at Urban Alchemy Lab. All of this was designed with a wealth of hands-on expertise and a fun approach to learning about total wellness both internal and topical.
With nature as my inspiration and science as the foundation, Urban Alchemy Lab is committed to providing everyone with quality, safe, and effective skincare with a story connecting to the heart of plant medicine.
