Meet our founder, Kendra Kolb Butler
A BACKGROUND IN CLINICAL SKINCARE. A BACKYARD FULL OF POSSIBILITIES.
A move from New York City to Jackson Hole, WY, to open a beauty apothecary uprooted everything Kendra Kolb Butler knew from her 20-year career in clinical skincare. Even the most high performance formulas— packed with clinically-proven ingredients—were no match for her clients' high-altitude skin concerns, most notably extreme dryness. Kendra was determined to find a solution.
It turns out, the solution was growing right in her backyard: Wyoming wild plants with amazing survival instincts that have thrived for thousands of years despite the relentless climate. These wild plants intuitively know how to bank moisture, concentrate nutrients and optimize life force. Their survivalist lifestyle inspired Kendra to infuse them into skincare formulas.
Alpyn Beauty is the first skincare brand to sustainably hand-harvested wild plants at their peak potency and punctuate their power with proven clinical actives. This wild-meets-clinical combination amplifies results and solves skin challenges at the deepest level.

Reforestation & Rewilding
We donate a portion of every purchase to the Grand Teton National Park Foundation's rewilding efforts, which includes restoring over 5000 acres of native grassland that’s vital for the diversity and abundance of plants and wildlife species like elk, bison and moose. So far, our contribution has helped rewild over 1000 acres.
Wildcrafting is the practice of harvesting plants from their natural, or wild, habitat. When done sustainably and with respect, only the fruit, flowers or branches are carefully removed, and the living plant is left healthy and intact.
We replace what we remove by a low impact, circular process we call circular harvesting. This process ensures that any unused ingredients are returned to the earth, often to the exact place where they were harvested, to compost.
