Inclusive Beauty Brand Debuts One & Done Everyday Cream with SPF 40
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#oneanddone–Nyakio Grieco, co-founder of thirteen lune and her eponymous award-winning skincare, is excited to announce the launch of her new beauty brand, Relevant: Your Skin Seen. Inclusive beauty is Grieco’s mission, one that has sustained her 20-year beauty career, believing that everyone has skin that deserves to be seen, loved and protected.
The first product to debut from the collection is One & Done Everyday Cream with SPF 40, a 4-in-1 lightweight treatment that replaces daily sunscreen, moisturizer, serum and primer. The cosmetically elegant formula combines zinc and titanium dioxide to provide broad spectrum mineral sun protection against UVA/UVB rays. One & Done Everyday Cream w/SPF 40 works on all skin tones—from the lightest to the darkest—without leaving a white cast. This supercharged day cream features Relevant’s R-Rev Complex, which protects and refines skin with a potent blend of antioxidant-rich superfruits and actives—Plum Oil, Niacinamide, Kigelia Extract, Buriti Oil, Sea Buckthorn and Green Tea. Rounding out the formula, Squalane, Sodium Hyaluronate and Apple and Oat extracts calm, nourish and moisturize all skin types.
Grieco’s commitment to clean, plant-based beauty is rooted in her upbringing. Her grandmother, a Kenyan coffee farmer, taught her about the benefits of rubbing coffee beans on her skin for exfoliation. Her medicine man grandfather instilled in her the power of plants and cold-pressed oils.
“It’s been a joy to design the skincare line of my wildest dreams. I worked alongside a team of diverse chemists that I cherry-picked for their deep understanding and experience in formulating clean skincare for all skin tones. Relevant: Your Skin Seen is science led beauty with plant-based ingredients at efficacious levels to fully harness their benefits. I’ve been grateful to work with such an extraordinary team that nurtures my vision so we can drive inclusion in the industry. It’s a full circle moment to develop Relevant and help answer the skincare needs of all people,” said Grieco.
One & Done Everyday Cream with SPF 40 is Leaping Bunny Program certified as cruelty-free, dermatologist tested, vegan and gluten-free. A Hawaii-approved reef friendly sunscreen, the product does not contain Homosalate, Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, Octocrylene, PABA, Nanoparticles of Zinc or Titanium, Sulfates, Phthalates, Parabens, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Fragrance, Artificial Coloring or Triclosan.
Relevant: Your Skin Seen One & Done Everyday Cream with SPF 40 retails for $38 for 1.7 oz./50 ml. and will be available online at relevantskin.com, thirteenlune.com, thirteen lune store in-stores at select JCPenney locations and JCPenney.com.
