Our Story

Not to be pigeonholed by any one cultural background, Chemnist was born from the respect and pride for being brown-skinned. Sharing in the experience of West Indian, East Indian, and Middle Eastern influences - it was conceived beyond a religious binary.

With beauty in every cultural secret, there comes a point in everyone's life where you appreciate the things you grew up with.  You find your signature scent and style hidden somewhere between your ancestral roots and the modern times. Our products are for those who want to experiment and find it. 

We believe in the wisdom of ayurveda, beauty secrets and aromatherapy passed down from generation to generation. Simple ingredients that can be mixed together in the heart of the home - the kitchen. Authentic and effective. Modest and unique.
