nour™ creates skin care products to empower people of color to have healthy, beautiful skin. At nour™, we identify inequity in the market and strive to fill those gaps with innovative products, first, by launching a skin care line with three dark shades of mineral-based sunscreen.
"I come from a long line of strong, Sudanese women who believe that health and beauty go hand-in-hand. nour™ is my mother’s namesake.
This skin care brand is a tribute to her dedication to raise Black daughters who would challenge norms and improve the lives of others. nour™ seeks to empower minority and marginalized groups to create equity where it does not currently exist."
-Mae, Founder and CEO
At nour™, we are developing a mineral-based sunscreen for dark skin tones.
The two mineral active ingredients you will find in your sunscreen are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These filters sit on top of your skin and deflect UV rays.
There are many benefits to using mineral filters which you can read here.
The problem? Mineral sunscreens leave an unflattering white cast, or residue, on dark skin tones.
At nour™, we believe that all shades of skin deserve to have a mineral sunscreen option. We are developing a tinted mineral-only sunscreen so you can finally feel safe and confident when you protect your skin.
No white cast, no unflattering residue, just mineral based sunscreen made with melanin in mind™.
