Our formulation standards:

Nuestra Tierra - we went to our homeland and beyond to find ingredients born to work with curls and waves.

Natural because curls are - clean, luxe ingredients chosen because they work best for curls, not for trend.

Skincare quality  - hydration and barrier protection hold pattern’s natural structure, fighting frizz and dryness from within.

Created & tested by us - we learned formulation ourselves to co-develop our own formulas, because what was out there wasn’t enough.
