Our 40 Percent Pledge
Just as melanin has the power to transform sunlight into energy, we believe that bringing Black-farmed botanicals into the skincare aisle has the power to create livelihoods.
Inspired and energized by the way our African and Caribbean ingredient suppliers are cultivating opportunities in their communities, we aim to make African American farmers the next gen leaders of the US beauty ingredient supply chain.
At Pholk we take a global approach to sourcing our Diaspora heirloom ingredients. 65% of our ingredients are sourced directly from Black cultivators in Africa, the Caribbean and the US. Of that, we currently source 15% of our raw ingredients from Black, brown and women farmers based in the Sourthern US. Our pledge is to increase our homegrown sourcing to 40% by 2025. Our current ingredient partners include Black Soil Ky, Nebedaye Farms, Reclamation Farms and Witch Mountain Mixology.
