This is not your local drug store. Cedra Pharmacy, the latest luxury offering to pop up in New York, is giving clients an entirely new way of looking at how they purchase beauty, skincare and medical products. A cross between a druggist, a beautician and a concierge, Cedra Pharmacy goes above and beyond in regard to health. Here you’ll find a well-curated collection of global products, medicines and remedies gracing the shelves.
"Cedra team members are going to work in conjunction with a patient’s existing health professionals to improve your overall health. Our pharmacists help you understand your condition(s), manage your medications, negotiate your insurance, etc.," founder Mazen Karnaby tells JustLuxe. "The Cedra team will be your 'personal health assistant,' essentially taking any medical stress off of your plate so that you can focus on becoming your healthiest self."
Their focus is healthy living, be it something as simple as assisting with dehydrated skin or a more serious ailment, they pride themselves on quality care. Pharmacists will work with you to help you better understand your medical condition, manage your medication and work to improve your overall health and well-being. Specialists will work with you individually to give you a better sense of your specific condition and recommend the best “treatments, supplements and behavioral modifications customized to your experience.”
"Cedra’s goal is to be the antidote to the modern pharmacy," Karnaby explains. "Instead of being corporate and transactional, Cedra Pharmacy is specialized, personal and cutting edge. In addition to a lead pharmacist, we have nutritionists in-house, personal trainers on deck and nurses on call. Combining these into one personalized team for a member gives the individual access to any health professional they could possibly need, all of whom are committed to providing the patient with peace of mind and top health care. Cedra offers members services available in their own home ranging from nutritional advice to massage therapy to personal training and skin/beauty consults along with their pharmacy team to ensure medical needs are taken care of."
While Cedra Pharmacy does offer diabetes kits, blood pressure machines and the like, customers will also find a range of skincare products for face and body; cosmetics, many with a suggested regimen based on skin type and skincare; supplements, and haircare. Custom compounds can also be created on site for specific allergies, conditions or even if a customer feels that another product “just doesn’t cut it.” They will tailor medicine, skincare, supplements, even beauty and hygiene products to give you a one-of-a-kind creation based off of your personal needs.
