Skin Scholars started many generations ago in Southampton County Virginia, in the fields, gardens and forest of founders' Elaina and Alysia's family’s lands. Their 5x Great Grandmother was blessed with the knowledge of the land and took care of her family from the land. There wasn't exactly your neighborhood Walgreen's to pop into when your skin was burned by the sun or when your hands ached from tending to the gardens. They would grow their herbs and flowers fresh and collect saps, oils and fresh water from the land to create creams, salves and tinctures to heal their family.
Their Great Grandmother and her oldest daughter, their grandmother, brought the mothers and daughters in their family together to teach them the gifts of the earth and the family secrets to ensure that their generation and the next kept the healing legacy alive.
Elaina and Alysia bring you Skin Scholars, a family owned handmade skin care company bringing family recipes to modern times. Their Great Grandmother, the matriarch of their family, is still alive today at the wise age of 93 years young. She is a consultant to the business and the curator of many of the recipes they use today. From teaching us what herbs to use dry and fresh to cold-pressing their oils to lending her expert opinion on the perfect whip to their "buttas".
Skin Scholars has been certified as Cruelty-Free by both Leaping Bunny and PETA, as well as established as a Green Business through Green America. What they put in their products matter to them, so they strive to use the highest quality ingredients like Aura Cacia Organic Essential Oils and Kakosi Organic Shea and Cocoa Butter.
Skin Scholars is bringing you “Legacy Skin Love” from their family table to your home.
