Who are we?
Skin Ethiks is a multifaceted business that educates the public and beauty professionals on the importance of ethical skincare for the melanin dominated. We custom blend a myriad of skincare products, curate personalized facials and regimens and assist c beauty businesses on launching or pivoting through intellectual stagnation via consulting, mentorship, coaching and event sponsorship or participation.
Birth of a Brand
Skin Ethiks was birthed in a test kitchen after realizing my sister had systemic lupus and diabetes. All the skin care that I promoted and marketed as an esthethician could not bring her relief. So we utilized our cosmetic chemistry and agricultural background with the culture of Caribbean herbalism to blend natural concoctions with absolutely no fillers and no toxins (simply because chemicals were never a part of our natural ethos)and we shared what worked until we were noticed.
Nature has produced naturally pure plant essences, aroma-therapeutic essential oils and nut butters. Why use petroleum when you can indulge in Skin Ethiks!
Skin Ethiks offers the best topicals for sensitive skin as we use only therapeutic essential oils as opposed to synthetic fragrances and color to mitigate the horrible side effects of medications. Clients with skin conditions generated from harsh products and photo sensitivities from prescription medication love the way Skin Ethiks illuminates their skin.
Our products at Skin Ethiks are made per order or in small batches to ensure the stability of ingredients. We customize the majority of our orders so please review what looks luscious and interesting and then contact us via DM or email so that our skincare professional may determine essential oils or ingredient that may be contraindicative and that that we adjust your curated formula accordingly.
We appreciate you supporting Skin Ethiks and our endeavors for simple, natural, healthy skincare.
Create your beauty!
