About Us


Space NK Apothecary started out as a concept store in London’s bustling Covent Garden shopping district. A ground-breaking boutique – which boasted one of London’s original juice bars – it was among the first of its kind, selling beautifully crafted designer clothing and accessories alongside a considered range of wellness and beauty products. ‘For me, beauty is a natural extension of fashion,’ explains Space NK founder Nicky Kinnaird. ‘Makeup and hair trends start on the catwalk and skincare needs to be approached from the inside out as well the outside in.’

With her unparalleled ability to single out burgeoning retail trends, it’s not surprising that Nicky’s carefully sourced and expertly curated mix of beauty and wellbeing lines proved to be ahead of its time and thus, enormously successful. Skip forward to the present day and Space NK Apothecary has morphed into an internationally respected brand, with an extensive online emporium, 62 stores across the UK and Ireland and 22 in the United States. The key to our global success is still the same core philosophy that underpinned that very first London store – to offer a highly edited selection of the finest, most innovative products sourced from all over the world.

At Space NK, we continue to scour the globe to ensure that only the best products and most worthy innovations are available in-store and online. By Terry, Laura Mercier, Chantecaille, Eve Lom, Dr Brandt, Tata Harper, Zelens, Oribe and David Kirsch are just a few of the names that have been given the Space NK seal of approval. And with a highly skilled team of makeup artists and skincare specialists on hand to advise clients, each armed with extensive knowledge on every product in the Space NK family, we hope to make our edit of products not just available but also accessible.

So come and join us on our journey of discovery, try new products, learn about brands, uncover new beauty favorites and share your hero products with us – it’s a big interesting world with new beauty secrets just waiting to be explored.
