Hi, I'm Perry Stern, founder of Nectary Botanics. As a teenager and as an adult, I regularly made my own skin and haircare products. After I turned forty, I was swayed by anti-aging marketing that I needed to purchase anti-aging products (even though my skin looked and felt great!) I was suddenly dealing with breakouts, dryness, hyperpigmentation and sensitive, irritated skin. I started researching label ingredients and was disappointed to discover that less than 25% of products marketed to Black women score low in hazardous ingredients!
I returned to my roots and studied to become an organic natural skincare formulator because I wanted to offer a natural and better option for everyone. That better option is Nectary Botanics. I am inspired by my grandmother's herbal remedies and by nature's beautiful, natural colors, and scents to create safe products for you and safe products that won't harm the Earth.
Nectary Botanics is focused on balance. We believe that all skin is beautiful and we leave “flawless” and "anti-aging" at the door. Our cruelty-free and vegan products address all skin types and skin tones gently and thoughtfully with natural ingredients that work to give you your best glow! Your skin will look and feel great now and years from now.
