By Justine Handmade Natural Products
By Justine was started in the kitchen of founder Justine in her Harlem apartment in 2015. Justine started creating hair and skincare products to address her own problems with hair shedding, dermatitis, eczema, and acne. She spent years mastering recipes that left her skin bright and glowing and hair healthy and long. In 2018, with the help and support of her family, she launched By Justine as a retail skincare brand.
Justine launched this skincare brand with a few goals in mind. First to provide quality affordable skincare to folks living in marginalized communities or communities where organic, natural, non-toxic skincare was either not in high supply or affordable. Second to educate people in her community on the benefits of using organic and natural skincare as well as adapting a lifestyle committed to wellness. Since then, the brand has expanded from just 6 body scrubs being sold to over 50 full body personal care items being sold in 45 states and two countries internationally. In addition, By Justine held its first annual FREE Virtual Wellness Retreat in May of 2020--with over 50 participants--offering lessons in empowerment, wellness, and selfcare. Today, By Justine Natural Handmade Products operates as a small black and family operated business that takes pride in creating quality, affordable products that can leave people feeling better about their skin and hair, and, ultimately, their wellness journey as a whole! We also take pride in working to build a community of wellness advocates who are equally as passionate about empowering and creating access to wellness products in underserved communities. We can’t wait to join you on your wellness journey.
