Resources 

This is an attempt to provide additional information to those of you searching. This is a place to start, with a collection of academic articles on healing plants, or those endangered species used commonly in practices of skincare and aromatherapy. There are articles featuring specific skin care ingredients as well as brands/companies I am exploring  who are representative of the value system I strive to operate from. There are titles to identify skincare and aromatherapy resources, and this page begins with information about racism, and all the "isms" tied to the ways in which oppression operates in the structure of American systems.

 

 Because of the long standing violence that comes from human hands, please educate and share resources, because Skin is not a threat.

Skincare Resources

Want to support small business owners, committed to natural skincare,with backgrounds including aesthetics, product formulation and aromatherapy, who are committed to animal safety and plant sustainability? Some of these lines are handcrafted, producing small batches for sustainability and using recyclable packaging, and these skincare businesses are owned by women of color. 

 

Ayele's approach to beauty is not a one size fits all approach, and I agree with this. Its why ingredient knowledge is so important...based on ingredients alone, the cleansers look amazing.  https://ayele.co/collections/cleansers

Elements of Aliel, has a Rose C Glow duo that features one of my favorite ingredients, rose hip seed oil. https://www.elementsofaliel.com/

Klur, is a skincare formulator and did her field work as an esthetician. Her vision is to create a brand that reflects the values of clean, ethical and inclusive beauty. Her products represent a minimalist routine with incredible ingredients, both luxurious and sustainable.  https://klur.co/pages/about

Angie Watts began her journey into skin care by creating an eczema formula for her daughter. Her Deep Cleansing oil is worth checking out if you are into the oil cleansing scene. https://www.angiewatts.com/

The owner and formulator for Herb' N Eden is inspired by nature and farmers markets. The detox deodorant kit is something that can boost your health and her soaps are all natural and plant based. https://www.herbneden.com/
