Chuck and Sam
Spring Clean Detox Tincture
There is only so much we can do for the skin topically: healthy skin really is a reflection of internal health. The skin is an eliminatory organ, so when things go awry on the surface, it often indicates imbalances elsewhere. This “skin detox” tincture includes gentle, tonic herbs that flush out and clean the systems associated with skin health: the liver, kidneys, and lymph (and a few digestive herbs to boot). Whether it was a long winter or a rough night, Spring Clean can get you feeling like the best, most nourished version of yourself.
Take 1-2 droppersful diluted in a little water 3-5 times daily. (Start once daily and work your way up.) These are all “tonic” herbs, so you can’t overdose on them.

We source medicinal herbs directly from farms (some we even grow ourselves). We are minimalists who avoid clutter on our shelves and in our ingredients. We’re also anti-hype: we take a scientific, evidence-based approach to formulation, using minimally processed natural ingredients that deliver maximum results.
Chuck and Sam began as our wedding website. On the big day, we gave handmade lotion as thank you to our guests. When people kept asking us for more, the idea for Chuck & Sam was born.
Sam is a writer and herbalist with a background in environmental science and sustainability; her husband Chuck, a designer and former chef, is her only guinea pig (animal testing = gross). We’re up front about what goes into our products because we respect our customers and the earth. We want skincare to become second nature, with products so simple and effective that they become staples in everyone’s daily routines. High-quality ingredients, simply prepared, no added clutter or wasted time.
