Founder Sajel Patel learned from an early age that the lighter the skin, the more beautiful the girl. Colorism colored her sense of self. And like many melanated women, she struggled with irregular pigmentation, inflammation, and dryness. But because beauty ads never featured women who looked like her, she didn’t believe there were beauty products made for her skin.
As a pharmacist she became an expert in understanding ingredient synergies. She believed for a long time that the right mix of pills could cure any ail. But when her daughter was diagnosed with Pigmentary Mosiacism, she exhausted her arsenal of pills only to discover that nothing worked. Just like beauty products, there wasn’t a prescription medication made for melanin disorders.
Instincts and ancestry kicked in and she looked to the Ayurvedic wisdom rooted in her Indian heritage and turned her training as a pharmacist, which was built upon ingredient synergies. Through this powerful fusion of Eastern plant-based medicine and Western clean science, Plantkos® (Kos, or "Kosha" in Sanskrit, means layer) was born. The first pharmacist-developed skincare line formulated with proprietary blends of Ayurvedic herbs and clean actives that target skin’s deepest dermal layers—where inflammation, dehydration, and hyperpigmentation, the three most common skin concerns of people with melanated skin, begin.
Your skin derserves to be seen and understood.
