Athena Hewett is a master esthetician with 20 years of study and training. Monastery was born out of Athena’s frustrations as she saw firsthand that many skincare products were causing or worsening the skin conditions her clients were trying to heal.
Athena’s passion for natural skincare began with childhood visits to Greece to visit her maternal grandmother. Gathering herbs, creating healing remedies, and bringing her awareness to the idea of working with the body rather than against it. Monastery is an homage to Athena’s heritage and her lifelong appreciation of Nature’s offerings.
Featured on our seal, Athena is an ancient Greek goddess associated with wisdom, warfare, and handicraft.
Athena and the team personally source, formulate, and test every product. We're proud to be a 100% independently owned beauty company.
All of our products are handmade in our lab in San Francisco.
