Queen City Alchemy is a maker and retail business nestled in the heart of the vibrant Over-the-Rhine community in Cincinnati, Ohio. We focus on carrying and curating responsible and sustainable products that are unique and handmade right here, in house, or throughout the U.S.
We believe that taking care of yourself and your loved ones shouldn't mean sacrificing your own health and wellbeing, the wellbeing of our planet, or the wellbeing of animals. Our handcrafted skin care line is in proud partnership with the Business Network for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and carries the Leaping Bunny Certification through the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics. Queen City Alchemy is committed to providing the highest quality soaps, serums, balms and botanicals using ONLY safe, non-toxic, and cruelty-free ingredients. Each of our ingredients serves a therapeutic purpose. We don't use fillers or other non-essential ingredients because we know that toxins in skin care products can absorb into your skin in a matter of seconds. We invite you to experience our passion for quality, beauty, honesty, and simplicity to bring balance and harmony to your life, allowing your most vibrant light to shine.
