Q&A with True Moringa co-founder, Emily Cunningham, on improving Ghana’s economy with Moringa …

When I first heard the story of skincare brand, True Moringa, I was blown away! What the two founders have created is truly inspiring. Kwami Williams, a former aerospace engineer (yes, becoming a rocket scientist was his initial aspiration), and Emily Cunningham, a Harvard economics graduate, are proving with True Moringa that a beauty product can be efficacious, eco-friendly, and nontoxic while uplifting poverty stricken communities. Now that’s beautiful. The two met during their undergraduate studies on a trip to rural Ghana with MIT’s D-Lab program where they were challenged to develop a practical solution to the area’s poverty challenges. The…

W3LL People Is Making Organic Makeup Egalitarian (aka Affordable) – Full Review

  W3LL People was founded in 2008 by a former NARS makeup artist/instructor, a marketing expert and a dermatologist.

Review : Susanne Kaufmann Line A – Anti-Aging Organic Skincare

There are moments in a beauty blogger’s life when you get the opportunity to test products that you otherwise would never be able to and all you can feel is gratitude.
