“I believe that self care is embodied from scalp to toes!”
Taraji P. Henson is no stranger to the world of entrepreneurship and keeps impressively topping up her resume. The Empire star’s latest venture is the launch of a new skincare line, Body by TPH.
The new body care line, dedicated to self-care is a sister line to her haircare brand, TPH by Taraji. Body by TPH, a collection of luxurious scents, and textures aimed at different skin types include 13 different products, ranging from body wash, butters, bath products, creams, candles, and oils, exclusively at Walmart from $8.97 to $11.97, reports WWD’s Beauty Inc. The Body by TPH line hosts three collections within the Body by TPH line: The Cleanse + Condition Coalition, The Skin Stylers, and Restoration Situals.
“People are a little traumatized from the pandemic and they’re not socializing as much or going to spas as much because there’s still the fear of COVID,” Henson tells InStyle. “During shutdown, I was teaching people how to do their hair at home and now it’s like, let’s turn that Sunday chore into a ritual. While you have your hair mask on, you can indulge in a nice deep, relaxing bath with a relaxing candle. Or you can get your energy the next morning from the mandarine and ginger in the body cleansing line.
“When we thought about taking care of self, I wanted to go from scalp to toe,” Henson shared with the outlet. “I always had that vision in mind. We wanted to give spotlight to products at an affordable price, luxurious-looking packaging, and spa-like scents to feel like you’re in a spa!”
Tara Brown, Maesa chief marketing officer, commenting on the delve wrote via email; “We are excited to accelerate the growth of the TPH by Taraji brand with entry into the adjacent category of body care.”
Meanwhile, supermodel Winnie Harlow on Friday also debuted her Cay Skin sun care label at Sephora, co-founded by entrepreneur Kim Perell’s 100.co. The difference however, is Harlow’s line brings a new element to the mix: Cay Skin is run by artificial intelligence.
“I wanted to create Cay Skin for all those people who have sensitive skin, who have vitiligo, who are light, dark, any color under the sun, and Kim and the 100.co team have given me an unbelievable platform to develop this line of products,” Harlow, who famously has vitiligo, told WWD. “They were with me every step of the way, from product concept to manufacturing and from fundraising to marketing. Most importantly, their AI platform gave us the data and insights to understand the market gaps not being fulfilled by traditional skin care brands.”
During her journey of fundraising for Cay Skin, Harlow became “one of only 100 Black female founders to have raised more than $1 million in venture capital,” per the outlet.
