If you didn’t already know, your skin is absolutely beautiful, no matter what it looks like!

 It doesn’t matter if you have hyperpigmentation, texture, acne, eczema, dark spots, or an uneven skin tone.

Feel confident and comfortable in your skin!

It can be hard for Black people to find representation in skincare. It can be even harder to find trustworthy companies with clean products and beneficial ingredients. 


Enter Topicals skincare.

A Black-owned skincare brand initially founded by Olamide Olowe Topicals focuses on reducing stigma about chronic skincare conditions. Their slogan, "Funner Flare-Ups," emphasizes Topicals' goal. As a Black woman, Olamide struggled with finding products to treat her own skin conditions. After tapping dermatologist and friend, Claudia Teng to join her business, Olamide officially created Topicals skincare. 















The duo set out to create an inclusive skincare brand that targets chronic skincare conditions like eczema and hyperpigmentation. So far, Topicals has relied on $2.6 million in venture capital funding from notable investors like Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji.


Their first two products were the Like Butter hydrating mask and their famous Faded brightening gel.









Like Butter and Faded are vegan, free of synthetic dyes and fragrances, and non-comedogenic. Ingredients like niacinamide, kojic acid, turmeric, and green tea work to smooth and hydrate your skin while targeting hyperpigmentation and eczema flares. 










With just those two products, Topicals became the first Black-owned brand to hit Sephora’s shelves, selling out of inventory within minutes!


Topicals skincare is DEFINITELY worth a try, especially if you love representation in skincare and a brand that uplifts chronic skin conditions. Just think about it, a Black-owned brand disrupted the $5.9 billion skincare market. And this is only the beginning...
