Papa Rozier, Founder: Rubens Amedee
Papa Rozier Farms, a Bushwick boutique specializing in all-natural beauty products, carries some of the best skin and hair moisturizers we’ve tried. But managing the gorgeously designed storefront, owned by brother-and-sister team Rubens Amedee and Fredeline “Freddie” Amedee-Benjamin, isn’t really the point of their work. It’s simply a vehicle toward a far more radical mission: to help build up Haiti.
Nolaskinsentials, Founder: Jane Ormon
I was a college kid struggling with acne, and couldn’t find any real solution to my get rid of my acne. Nolaskinsentials is a play on words all around. Nola is my sister’s first two middle names and one of the first places my husband and I visited when we first began dating. Skinsentials is derived from “essentials for skin”… things your skin needs. At first I began just creating products for myself and all my friends were like wow, Jane, your skin looks good — what are you using? And then everything started from there.
