Pretty in Pinkston Skincare is a skincare line with a purpose. A black-owned, luxury skincare line founded by former runway model, Kimberly Pinkston, it was developed for the purpose of promoting healthy skin and maintaining that melanin glow.
After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Kimberly’s personal passion became helping to find a cure for MS, and to help young black girls pursue their dreams of becoming models. The company features black fashion models on the brand’s labels for maximum exposure and to help fund their education.
She also teaches runway to girls from underprivileged communities.
Even the model on her website is one of her students. “I want to get them as much positive exposure as possible. 20% of all sales are donated to the MS Foundation so that hopefully in the future no one else has to go through the pain of MS. We also have a scholarship fund for the young ladies in my program who want to go to college. I love giving back! Someone helped me on my journey, and now I get to pay it forward,” she said.
All the products are vegan, gluten-free, sulfate-free, cruelty-free, silicone-free, talc-free, paraben-free, and eco-friendly!
