I HOPE FOR THE BRAND TO BE A PLACE FOR EQUAL REPRESENTATION, SUSTAINABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY WITHIN THE INDUSTRY
I am a person that’s very mindful of what I eat and of what I put on my body. When it comes to makeup I’ve struggled to find a brand that’s truly clean and with shades that are actually flattering on my skin tone.
I remember my countless trips to beauty stores where I couldn’t find a single nude pink out of hundreds of brands they carried that actually showed up on my dark grey lips, without making me look ashy.
I strived to create a line of products that is inclusive of all skin shades, without compromising on ingredients or performance.
I began by going back to my South Asian roots, where our ancestors have often used elements in nature to beautify themselves. I started experimenting with clays and pigment rich fruits and flowers such as cherries and hibiscus. I researched Ayurvedic principles and its teachings of using powerful plants and herbs to heal the body, mind and spirit.
After five years of research and hundreds of iterations later, Mango People was born. We are proud to offer a diverse range of shades where anyone can find the perfect product that accentuates their natural beauty, no matter the skin tone. Whether light, tanned or dark toned, I hope everyone can find their perfect match at Mango People.
Beyond the products, I hope for the brand to be a place for equal representation, sustainability and transparency within the industry.
