Not all the great products come out of a lab in Paris. These Philly-based beauty brands are poised to be the next big thing.
These well-priced, naturally derived oils, face washes, shampoos and soaps are made specifically for men. (Beard bros, don’t miss their many facial-hair grooming products.) If you’re curious but overwhelmed, opt for one of the face kits, which have everything you need to get started on a skin-care journey.
This line is high on attitude (slogan: “Always clean, so you can play dirty”) and short on gross stuff: Their products are organic and vegan. Best-sellers: their bronzing oil, CBD face oil and Strawberry Fresca Mist. Find them at Free People and Cocokittybeauty.com.
F&W products might be named after Philly neighborhoods, but this booming plant-based brand is getting national attention. Start with the mask combo pack — you’ll love how brightening the charcoal Midtown Village one is. Shop by appointment at their Bok Building HQ, or purchase at Franklinandwhitman.com.
Adeline Koh has taken the principles of Korean beauty and created a robust line of products that includes the Rose Foaming Cleanser, Asian Powerhouse Serum and Anti-Aging Eye Gel-Oil. She occasionally opens her Bok Building studio for special events; follow along on social to stay in the know.
