A line of natural products formulated for the special needs of today’s black women

What is special about Christal Cosmetics?

Christal is a Botanical line of skin care targeted for the special needs of Black skin, with a growing number of Black women seeking products for their skincare regime using natural ingredients, these products offer the perfect solution for Dynamic Hydration, Ethno-Radiance, and Sebum Balancing.

Why launch a product range specifically for women of colour?

Although basic skin-care needs are the same for everyone, there are some issues that darker skin tones are more likely to experience. For example, it may be more prone to skin issues like keloidal (raised) scarring, pronounced hyperpigmentation, sensitivity and ingrown hairs.

Do black women have particular skin issues that differs from other women?

Black skin is prone to stubborn hyperpigmentation (dark marks) that lingers long after any trauma (blemishes, scratch, burn, acne…) has come and gone. Black skin has specificity: it can be dehydrated and at the same time continue to shine, while a white skin lacking water does never shine. When there’s a buildup of dead cells, it can make your skin look gray and ashy.

Do you believe that the skin we have is inherited genetically or can be by good diet and skincare?

I’ll agree with both statements, but genes don’t determine everything. If your parents have skin that is enviably fine, smooth, glowing, firm, and blemish-free, there is a good chance that you are predisposed to having skin that behaves similarly. A good chance, not a guarantee; your genetic architecture isn’t limited to your parents after all. And every person is unique—you may be the only person in your family to develop acne or a sensitivity to a particular ingredient that is common in most cosmetics. As well, our environments are changing all the time. In other words, just because your family may have great skin does not automatically mean that you will, too, especially if you abuse your skin or do not take care of it.

Drinking water and other liquids often and throughout your day is the best way to keep your body and skin hydrated and supple. Hydrated skin is more elastic and plump, but dehydrated skin is more likely to crack and let in irritants that can cause blemishes. Green juices, which are packed with fruits and vegetables, are a great way to hydrate. A healthy, wholesome diet is a key component to looking your best. Eat fresh, complex fruits and vegetables full of vitamins and nutrients and leave behind processed foods and refined sugars.

Do you have plans to expand the range or develop other products?

We’d love to develop a collection to target male skin concerns with rough texture, enlarged pores, stressed skin, and ingrown hair.
