Self Care = Fuel for Activism
We believe the world needs activism on an everyday, massive scale. That's what it's going to take to create a new culture and society built around the wellbeing of all earthlings. But this work is difficult and draining. It's imperative to replenish our minds, bodies and spirits. Self care is fuel for activism!
That's why we're dedicated to creating beautiful and sustainable self care products, using our platform to celebrate diverse change-makers, and financially supporting the environmental movement.
A delightful, nourishing skincare routine is one essential way to replenish yourself. Our products are natural, low waste, safe for all skin types, and a delight to use — they smell nice, they look rad and they work. Check out our simple and easy 4-step Activist Method.
From 100% vegan ingredients sourced from sustainability-minded suppliers, to our glass packaging and low-waste refills offered on almost all our products, we work to ensure that our products are as good for the planet as they are for your body.

Meet the team
Allison Callaway, founder
From a young age, Allison felt a strong pull to stand up for animals and the earth — work that can be emotionally and physically draining. Having learned the hard way that we can't help others unless we take care of ourselves, Allison believes in self care to refill a change-maker's cup (and she also believes in refillable packaging). Activist Skincare is her homage to those pushing for a better world every day, and her handmade products are the silver lining of her struggle with acne and long journey to loving her skin.
