An African proverb states, "It takes a village to raise a child." In the village of Harlem, the collective consciousness of African descended people is being raised through the exciting work of MAKARI (pronounced muh-ka-ree), a high-end skin care line especially suited for dark skinned men and women.
People with dark skin have endured decades of neglect in the world market of cosmetics among established international companies. The continued marginalization of African descended men and women led to the inspiration of American businessman Jack Aini, who later partnered with renowned Belgian chemist Maurice Bertrand to establish the highly innovative MAKARI de SUISSE line.
The MAKARI products were manufactured in Switzerland, a country respected for high quality, while undergoing intense scientific and technical scrutiny, resulting in a formula combining luxurious caviar extracts and natural plant extracts.
Now available in local beauty stores, as well as in private locations in Brussels, New York City and Paris, the MAKARI line features from originally seven to 60 different products, consisting mainly of a skin care line, baby line, make-up line, and an amazing line of 10 body lotions, each with a different scent.
MAKARI products are all natural plant extracts from the earth, and contain properties from the sea. The MAKARI line has no bleach, no chemicals and no hydroquinone, which is known to be harmful to the skin. By using such ingredients as algae, aloe vera, caviar, citric acid, lemon, malic acid, mulberry, salicylic acid, seaweed and vitamin C, they naturally heal and clear the skin.
Despite our belief "black is beautiful", blotchy skin and pigmented marks remain unwanted. MAKARI affirms and understands the value of feeling good on the inside, as well as looking good on the outside, by embracing beauty and skin care one face at a time.
