Made with natural, certified organic and fair trade ingredients, and designed for all skin and hair types, the Beauty Hack system starts with a fragrance-free base that is combined with a pure oil and finished with a fragrance oil. A healthy ingredient from the kitchen or garden — such as a banana, green tea or basil leaves — can be added to provide an extra nourishing boost.
Richelieu Dennis, founder and CEO of Sundial Brands, maker of SheaMoisture, noted that Beauty Hack meets the demand for DIY solutions, as well as for ingredient simplicity and transparency. The system offers consumers full visibility to what they are applying to their hair and skin, plus it ensures optimum freshness and reduces waste, since one application is mixed at a time and used immediately.
“Recognizing and acknowledging different need states has been at the core of SheaMoisture’s innovation strategy since the beginning,” Dennis stated. “We listen to our community and develop new formulations based on individual needs. In doing so, we discovered that consumers want simplicity, transparency and a personalized approach — products that address their specific hair and skin types and concerns.”

“We are excited to empower our community to mix and match ingredients to design custom blends that satisfy personal preferences,” Dennis added. “We encourage our customers to add as many benefits and scents as they desire, experiment with how frequently they use their treatments, and then share their customized recipes with other community members.”
