Creators of Brown and Coconut

We’re sisters, Letisha and Zeena, and we started Brown and Coconut as a lifestyle blog in 2013 while living in Boston, MA. We shared our journey to living a more conscious and holistic life with a special focus on our efforts to heal our acneic skin, which didn’t get better with conventional treatment methods. We knew the type of skin care products we were looking for but couldn’t find them in stores, trying countless products that were too expensive and didn’t meet our expectations, leaving us disappointed and out of money. Frustrated, but motivated, we embarked on the journey to develop our own line of skin care products.

After identifying the ingredients we found effective in healing our skin, we began crafting entirely unique formulas. Countless hours of research, cosmetic chemist expertise, trial, and error led to the creation of our line of plant-based powerhouse products that not only do what they say they do, but that feel incredible to use. We’ve come a long way since we made our debut at our first-ever local pop-up event in Massachusetts, but what has not changed is our love for making luxurious botanical skin care that you simply can’t wait to come home to.

Our Philosophy

Brown and Coconut is a sister-owned and operated skin care company with a focus on plant-based formulas. We obsess over every single ingredient that we add to our products, avoiding anything that is known to be irritating or cause for concern, and hone in on unique blends of botanicals and clays that are especially effective and truly feel incredible to use. We aim to create products that you can’t wait to come home to. Unwinding with our products is an entire skin care experience that’s amplified by the fact that you know they’re going to work and they’re good for you and the planet. We pride ourselves on the fact that the products we create can be added to any skin care routine.
