PANA is derived from the word panacea, the cure-all. In some languages, PANA can also translate to "buddy" or "friend".
PANA Skincare is locally made in Ottawa, Canada. The journey started in June of 2018 with the intention of providing high quality, plant-based skincare to friends and family. One year later, PANA set up shop at Makespace North and joined a diverse community of makers. Every day is an adventure - drop by and say hello!
Botanicals have been used for centuries in holistic medicine, from poultices and ointments to tinctures and serums. PANA combines old world potion-making with a modern understanding of skincare formulation. We use as few ingredients as possible and never any filler. This includes parabens, mineral oil, silicone, or anything derived from animals.
We make everything in small batches, so if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please – don't hesitate to reach out. We are happy to make substitutions should you encounter any ingredients you may be allergic to.
