kanti was created to un-komplicate skincare for people of color and help them to find their inner glow. we are a modern, homegirl-approved skincare brand, katering to the needs of melanin-rich skin. in a beauty industry where diversity & inclusion has become a trend, we don't want to create products that merely consider melanin-rich skin & diverse tones as an afterthought – we want to lead with black & brown skin at the forefront of our brand.  people with melanin-rich skin are more prone to skin issues like hyperpigmentation, dark spots, eczema, dehydration, oiliness, acne, uneven texture & more. kanti’s mission is to celebrate black & brown skin by addressing these issues in our products and helping our people to glo inside and out. we want to let our people know that they can achieve healthy, glowing skin, regardless of their skin type and regardless of “genetics”.


kanti is your melanin-friendly skincare bestie, here to make skincare simple & help you love the skin you’re in.

as a skincare obsessed influencer and woman of color, I always found myself connecting with my people over the topic of skincare. different girls and women (sometimes even men) would send me messages on instagram asking me to give them a regimen or product recommendations. I quickly noticed that so many people didn’t even know where to start. I also noticed that a lot of them had been using popular products just because they sounded good and not because they would work for them. time and time again, I heard the same complaints about the same skincare concerns – hyperpigmentation, dark spots, uneven texture, and oily/acne prone skin. I realized our struggle was real. I needed to find a way to un-complicate skincare for my fellow melanated millennials – thus kanti was born. i’ve coined myself “the glo kween” not just because I’ve grown to love my natural glo, but because I love helping people to discover and love their glo too.

skincare has been a constant part of my life for more years than i can count. it all started when I moved to a cold city and found that my skin needed help adjusting to a new winter climate (boy, was it shocked!). it wasn’t long before I  found myself researching and testing a ton of products in order to find the perfect routine to keep my skin looking and feeling its best. little did I know that my personal journey would lead to women like my sisters, mom, friends and followers reaching out to lil ‘ol me for product recommendations to solve their own skin concerns, for years and years to come. the opportunity to help improve their lives in that way brought a purpose I knew I had to share with more of my beautiful people. as an influencer and self-proclaimed skincare junkie,  I want to help melanated millennials feel as beautiful and as confident in their own skin, as I do in mine.
