We brought nature back to the table and together with her we created skincare for all of us that is made with natural oils and butters, essential oils, botanicals and lots of love for people and the planet.
My mission is to provide healthy, clean skincare products made by minorities that are looking for a safe work environment, where they can thrive & be a real part of the business, the creations & its growth
Ok, what is a skinfood kitchen?? no wait, I know what a kitchen is, but what is skinfood? So basically, our skin is a pro when it comes to protecting us from outside harm. It has three strong layers: the epidermis, the dermis (where the blood vessels, hair follicles, and sweat glands are) and a deeper level called the hypodermis.
The epidermis loves oil but hates water, that’s why we can swim and shower without absorbing it all! The epidermis acts as a strong barrier between us and the outside world. Unfortunately, many commercial skincare products contain harsh chemicals that can penetrate the first layer of our skin and end up in our bloodstream.
We can’t and won’t promise to keep you forever young, but we promise to keep all our products forever natural and honest.
So just like food, anything you put on your skin might end up in your body. So I did what anyone would do upon learning this: I wept, I screamed, I broke dishes. I ended the relationship. Then, I created The Skinfood Kitchen. Out of crisis comes opportunity. No more large coops promising to keep you forever young by smearing harmful chemicals on your skin. I brought nature back to the table, and together we created skincare for all of us that is made with natural oils and jars of butter, essential oils, botanicals, and lots of love for people and the planet, pa lagged in plastic-free, sustainable, reusable, recyclable packaging. I can’t and won’t promise to keep you forever young, but I promise to keep all our products forever natural and honest.Maiss’s story
After my late husband’s sudden death, I found myself trying to raise my son on my own with long work hours, long hours for him in daycare & no time for both of us to heal. I decided to start my own business so I can be more flexible with my hours & have more time for my family. It’s the best decision I have ever made, & now I would like to help other women who find themselves in difficult situations be independent, make their own money & feel safe & secure in a women-owned business. Now I’m the proud owner of a small business, producing, fresh, natural skincare & bath products handmade from natural ingredients, packaged in sustainable containers. We also host very popular workshops where people learn how to & make their skincare.
. Once I can open a workspace that is suitable for retail, customers will be able to buy all their skincare in bulk, choosing exactly how much they want, they can also choose to your their container or a reusable container they buy at the store. so even on the days where I have a 500 bath bomb order that needs to be shipped in a few days & my back hurts from hand making each & every bath bomb, I keep going because each of these pure & natural bath bombs is going to make someone out there feel amazing when they drop it into their bath water & enjoy the therapeutic essential oils, salts & oils. This is love.
