Makari knows you shouldn’t have to choose between safe, effective, and luxurious skin care products. The brand makes all three happen, and we’ve been indulging in some of their essentials for flawless skin…and you should too.

Founded in Paris in 1995, Makari de Suisse launched to provide a trustworthy line of skincare for people of color. The innovative beauty brand creates high-performing products to address skin needs, particularly for melanin-rich skin. All of Makari’s formulations are hydroquinone-free, steroid-free, cruelty-free, and gluten-free, containing ingredients that support healthy skin.

Makari’s team of expert chemists developed and patented “Vegeclairine” and “Organiclarine,” which are two non-toxic, non-chemical, and high potency brightening complexes, that are packed with natural botanicals that effectively target hyperpigmentation, fading dark spots, melasma, age spots, inflammation, and also evens skin tone revealing a more radiant complexion. Beneficial to all skin types, Makari has facial and body care for everyone, including babies.

Here are three Makari essentials that will leave your skin refreshed, radiant, and ready for whatever the day brings. Thank us later!

Blended with natural ingredients including Coconut Oil, Vitamin C and E, Grapeseed Oil, Aloe Extract, and Collagen, the Blue Crystal Revivify Beauty Bar Soap will completely revitalize and refresh your skin. Adding H2O turns this bar soap into a creamy, foam wash that fades discoloration and renews the skin’s texture. Makari’s moisture-rich beauty bar will give your skin new life as it stimulates cell turnover, which helps improve resiliency and protects against the effects of environmental aggressors.

Also made with key ingredient Glutathione, a natural antioxidant and brightening botanical, the beauty bar reduces acne, melasma, and dark spots as it lightly exfoliates and preps the skin for the skincare that follows. With Makari’s unique cell-stimulating and restoring formula, your skin is left feeling fresh, clean, and oh-so smooth. I love its signature scent that has powdery and earthy notes, and will keep you smelling fragrant throughout the day. I like using this beauty bar on my body in the shower, but it’s also safe to use on your face as well.

The Rose 24K Gold Multipurpose Dry Oil is a silky and lightweight, multipurpose body oil that nourishes and illuminates the skin with a gentle, golden shimmer. This oil is infused with sweet almond oil, macadamia seed oil, hazel seed oil, argan oil, sunflower seed oil, rosemary leaf extract, and ascorbic acid that, altogether, protects and heals your skin. This Rose Gold Oil is a beautiful product that delivers nourished skin and a natural-looking shine, without leaving your skin feeling sticky or greasy. It’s a shimmering, body-bronzing oil infused with real gold flakes, to have your body (and hair!) radiating for hours.

If you have dry skin, this is the perfect formula for you. The Rose Gold Oil softens the skin and adds a satin finish. I like to lather the oil on my entire body, and especially on my collarbone and arms. This Rose Gold Oil gives me a sunkissed glow, without being overpowering. To use, apply the oil directly to your face, body or hair as needed. I like to apply the oil on damp skin after showering to lock in moisture. You can also mix in the oil with body lotion, or even a foundation for an extra glow.


The UV Clear Facial Sunscreen SPF 46 is your skin’s much needed daily defense. With SPF 46, this soothing sunscreen calms and protects the skin from harsh effects of UV rays without causing breakouts. Best of all, this sunscreen melts into the skin and contains beeswax, avobenzone, and homosalate that heal and soften the skin. To use, apply liberally to the face and neck 15 minutes before sun exposure. Makari recommends applying sunscreen as the last step of your skincare routine, and be sure to reapply the sunscreen at least every two hours.
