My daughter, Olivia, discovered Brown and Coconut at a holiday market (pre-COVID of course!) and fell in love with their products. While living in Boston, sisters Letisha and Zeena started Brown and Coconut as a lifestyle blog in 2013. A few years later in 2016, they started looking for skincare products that threaded the fine line between affordability and being good for their skin. After failing to find what they were looking for, they developed their own range of holistic, with plant-based products to treat their acne.
They put their focus on making sure their products are acne-friendly and gentle while being effective using high quality plant ingredients. The name Brown and Coconut is a combination of the last name they share and one of their favorite ingredients!
After recent appearances on Chronicle and a segment on Dining Playbook, the sisters have been hard at work keeping up with the demand of online orders! They pour, package and ship, as well as handle all of their marketing and social media.
I reached out to them and asked if they’d be interested in being a part of our Lenox Mercantile, where we feature local businesses – they whole-heartedly agreed and have become a great partner!
