Susan Benzuly & Yolande Muoio

Owners – Evolve Apothecary


Now more than ever, what you put on your body is just as important as what you’re putting in it. But when it comes to making safer, more mindful choices about products, you probably need help from the experts. In Providence, they’re Susan Benzuly and Yolande Muoio of Evolve Apothecary. The store specializes in natural, good for you beauty and home products. Trained as a registered nurse and a personal trainer, Sue says, “I became more and more interested in wellness, and how we prevent illness. The skin, the biggest organ in the body, has so much to do with that.”

The store not only stocks better alternatives for your body, but carries lots of products made in Rhode Island. Evolve carries Farmaesthetics, Java, Curious Nature Apothecary, Farmacy Herbs, Infinity Apothecary, Cathryn Violet Artisan Soap and The Jam Salves. But, it’s not just about skin care. Evolve stocks products to live a more holistic lifestyle. So yes, you’ll find hair products by Intelligent Nutrients, makeup by Jane Iredale and skincare by Dr. Hauschka, but you’ll also find dish soap, diapers and household cleaners. “It’s our offering to Providence,” Sue says. “Here’s your chance for wellness. We’ve done the very best we could to provide people with safe alternatives that really work.”
