Specifically Made for Women of Color - Ode to Self Skincare – Ode to Self Skincare and Wellness

Our Origins

Ode to Self Skincare started as a journey of slowing down and understanding myself by reducing the amount of “clutter” and junk in my life. That included the bottomless pit of excessive skincare products and steering away from the “skincare junkie” aspiration to focus more on what my skin actually needed. Thus, creating a minimalistic, multifunctional routine to nurse it back to health and get back to prioritizing myself.

 

Our target is specifically sensitive dry skin. I formulate without the use of artificial fragrance, dyes, excessive ingredients, or high amounts of BHAs and AHAs, allowing a true balance of transparent, hydrating, and restorative ingredients formulated for darker complected skin tones first.

 

I believe in order to better understand yourself, you must first strip down to the basics. Thus, Ode to Self's system focuses on the basic steps required in a routine to help you get know your skin better, creating a solid foundation to build on for your healthy skin journey.
