We care about you
Physical appearance is an essential component of self-confidence. Therefore, when you look good, you feel good.
Unlike men, women across the world face tremendous pressure to look beautiful daily. This feeling has intensified with social media causing everyone to want to look and feel as good as the celebrities and beauty vloggers and bloggers they see online.
In Europe, North America and Asia, high quality beauty products are readily available for lighter skin shades but sadly, unaffordable for majority of women seeking darker shades, causing some women to resort to counterfeit products that expose them to long-term health risks.
We create for you
African women have skin and hair texture that most products do not cater for today. Despite the fact that as of 2018, there are 679 different shades of foundation(source Nielsen), it is still difficult for women of colour all around the world to find their product skin shades. And when they do find it, it is usually overpriced for their modest budget, especially in sub-Saharan Africa where the median monthly income per inhabitant is $417 or $14 per day (source: World Bank, 2017).
- 1% of Air Cosmetics’ profits are allocated to the Air Women Foundation (AWF) which builds local businesses for would-
- be migrant women in Africa and thus empowers them to stay in their countries, rather than risk sexual abuse on the journey across
- the Sahara en route to Europe.
FInally, all Air Cosmetics products will have embedded technology that will enable our customers to discover Africa through a visually immersive experience
Like the Air we breathe, our goal at Air Cosmetics is to create a range of high quality luxury makeup collection, that is affordable and globally accessible to all women of colour be they in Timbuktu, the Banlieues of Paris or Brooklyn.
