Founder’s note – Emani Vegan Cosmetics

emani vegan makeup founderLike many of us, I suffered from severe, cystic acne beginning when I was teenager.  Unfortunately, embarrassing breakouts and sensitive skin didn’t end with my teens, and I continued to deal with problematic skin well into my adult years.  During the 1990s, while  working as a fashion designer in an industry that emphasizes physical appearance, I felt less than confident in mine.“Necessity is the mother of all inventions.”I did whatever I could to get rid of my acne.  I resorted to thick cover-ups, which only made my skin worse, intensifying the acne I was trying to cover up in the first place.  I spent countless hours researching acne solutions and sensitive skin treatments.  Visit after visit to the dermatologist brought nothing but disappointment.  Retin-A treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion – even Accutane – nothing seemed to help.  Frustrated, defeated, and ready to give up, I didn’t know what else to do.

I didn’t know that else to do, that is, until I did some reading on advanced skin-studies and met with some dermatologic experts that now work with Emani Vegan Cosmetics.  What did I find out?  I learned that even though there are genetic factors beyond our control that contribute to our dermatologic condition, we can control acne and sensitive skin with what we put on our skin.  Accordingly, every Emani product is carefully formulated and screened for sensitivity, toxicity, performance, long-term impact, and comedogenic factors.

“A moment’s insight is sometimes worth a lifetime’s experience.”  -Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Drawing on my personal struggles and experiences with acne and sensitive skin, I made it my personal mission to create a clean, noncomedogenic makeup line appropriate for all skin types – especially the problematic skin I suffered with for so long.  I created Emani Vegan Cosmetics with this mission in mind.  As Emani continued to develop, I realized the need to amend my mission, and I am proud to say that every product in the Emani Vegan Cosmetics line is now vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, talc-free, and gluten-free.
