Meet The Founder

Esnavi, Founder of ZEN by Esnavi

 

I've been a beauty enthusiast for as long as I can remember.  Everything new and noteworthy in skin care and cosmetics, I know about it.  It's such an exciting world.  Self-care is extremely important to me and my desire to have healthy, glowing skin is the ultimate motivator in the foods I eat and the products I use.

As a music artist, I've been no stranger to the beauty industry.  Early on in my music career, I extended my brand beyond music with two beauty campaigns -- one with Alison Raffaele Cosmetics, an eco-friendly cosmetics line, in which I became the first African-American to represent the brand in its “Live Beautiful” campaign; and the other with Dazzle Dry, a clean beauty nail polish brand in which I had my very own collection, entitled Esnavi Live.  At the time, I had no idea I would someday create my own skincare brand, but my musical life positioned me to be a part of the beauty world that I love so much.

I became an organic skincare formulator after deciding to turn my immense love for skincare into a business, while making natural products that are good for our skin and environment.  I believe that everything our skin needs is provided by nature.  This philosophy inspired me to create ZEN and these products are a direct reflection of that.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  They’ve been responsibly handcrafted by me, with love, especially for you.
