Hello, I am Kesha Janaan, the founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Brown Sugar. My passion for natural skincare products began with a personal need for effective, nourishing solutions for my hair and skin, which led me to develop my own line of high-quality, organic, and fair-trade products. My mission is to make these natural skincare products accessible to everyone, while also ensuring that they are environmentally friendly and ethically sourced.

Our Journey

While living in the arid climate of Arizona, I found that my hair was constantly dry, frizzy, and unmanageable. This led me to create a whipped body butter for personal use, designed to nourish both my skin and hair. Over a period of five years, I perfected the formula and, in January 2017, I started selling the body butter. Encouraged by the positive response from my customers, I expanded my product line to include a variety of bath and body items.

Our Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

All Brown Sugar products are crafted using organic, fair-trade ingredients, with a focus on sustainability whenever possible. Our products are at least 90% natural, with the majority being 100% natural. By minimizing processing, we maintain the natural integrity of the ingredients, ensuring that they meet my high standards through personal testing.

Our Ethical Approach

My dedication to natural skincare goes beyond just creating effective and high-quality products. I am also committed to ensuring that our products do not harm the environment or exploit others. By sourcing ingredients from fair trade and eco-friendly sources, we place sustainability and ethical practices at the core of Brown Sugar by Kesha Janaan.

Our Vision

At Brown Sugar by Kesha Janaan, we believe that everyone should have access to high-quality, effective, and ethically sourced skincare products. By remaining committed to sustainability, ethical sourcing, and creating products that don't harm the environment or exploit others, we strive to make natural skincare accessible and beneficial for all.

  • “Just Like Heaven!”

    I love this product, it is amazing. The whipped body butter is the best. It leaves my skin hydrated all day (which is rare with my eczema), makes me smell like a Nubian Queen, and I also noticed that it's helping aid in reducing sagging skin and brings my skin's natural elasticity back! Five stars

  • “Absolutely Brilliant!”

    This is an all-natural product that works best when you are just getting out of the shower or bath. It maintains your body's moisture and leaves the skin feeling smooth and smelling phenomenal.

  • “Really Really Love It!”

    The whipped body butter is by far the best I've tried. I love that I can use it literally from head to toe. It leaves our hair and skin so soft, smooth, and shiny. I've recommended it because my family I enjoy it so much.
