Woman Behind the Glow
I started making skincare products while in grad school after having a terrible skin reaction. I went to countless dermatologists and specialists, yet no one could figure out the cause of my reaction. I became super frustrated and in an act of typical Drea drama, I threw all my beauty products away and vowed to only use super clean hand-made products.
As my skin immediately cleared up, my intrigue in African-sourced skincare products grew. As a child of African immigrants, I was very familiar with the medicinal properties of many plants in Africa, but through research I was able to gain a ton of knowledge on just how beautiful and powerful the resources of the continent are.
I was inspired and decided to make my DIY skin care products into a full-fledged business. I was super excited for this new start and after much deliberation it made the most sense to name my brand after the Arabic word for new beginning “Aini”.
