The two women bonded over a mutual interest in wellness, nature, art, and design, soon turning their business and creative know-how into a new venture. In 2021, they founded Alkemis, a revolutionary quartz-based interior wellness paint with minerals and ingredients that are free from toxic pollutants and VOCs. It's also mold resistant, water repellent, and nonflammable; due to a high pH, it's also hygienic. Alkemis is one of the only paint companies in North America to be Cradle to Cradle Certified.

Minerals and ingredients are sourced in Europe, and the paints are made to order by hand in the United States. Alkemis paints, $120 per gallon, Rebecca Sherman OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS.
