EP.4 BLK Alchemy The Podcast: Niambi Cacchioli, Founder of Pholk Beauty

For our Black History Month episode, we chatted with  holistic care for melanin-rich skincare brand Pholk Beauty founder, Niambi Cacchioli. Niambi is a 5th generation Kentuckian farmer,  esthetician, African and Middle Eastern historian/scholar, wife, mom, and beauty activist! 

Her calling is to welcome women of color into the natural skincare space by thinking about both lifestyle and skin needs and crafting a brand narrative that celebrates women of color as innovators of culture. She has set a goal for the brand to source 40% of raw ingredients from US-based BIPOC and women-owned and led farms within the next few years. 

We take a deep dive into her journey from professor to beauty boss lady and the wonders and benefits of melanin.
