As a brown girl, finding the right products and skincare services to take care of our needs can be a bit difficult. Due to the amount of melanin in our skin, we require special attention that most estheticians are not well-versed in treating. Luckily for us, Eunice Cofie-Obeng, founder, chief chemist and esthetician of skincare brand Nuekie is set to launch a new online skin directory catering to people of color and provides access to skincare services across the country.

The Skin Of Color directory will offer a list of screened skincare professionals in the United States who share their experiences and expertise with treating skin concerns like acne and hyperpigmentation that plague ethnic skin.

“As a woman of color, I fully understand the challenges that we face when it comes to getting professional skin care treatments for our skin,” she told Black News. “Delivering the best quality skin care to women of color has been a passion of mine for many years. This has been the driving force behind the creation of the directory, as I want everyone to have access to quality skin care. Women of color will now have confidence in knowing they are connecting with skin care professionals who understand the skin they are in.”

The directory is slated to launch later this year. Visit to get an exclusive VIP invite prior to launch.
