We’re Jess & Jay! We embarked on this journey to create Empress Beauty to promote using natural ingredients for skin and hair care. To develop our line, we conducted in-house research on the chemicals found in many of today's skincare products. Many of those chemicals were known to cause rashes, discoloration, and scarring.
Frustrated with the products that did not address the needs for women and men of color, we decided to make product for our own skin and it worked! We found that organic ingredients are best for skin, so we began a business which helped a lot of people who were dealing with the same issues.
