Asili Botanical Skincare in the NEWS: SPA STAR

EXCERPT: Asili Botanics founder and president Natasha Wright grew up in one of Toronto’s most violent, impoverished neighbourhoods. While teaching at a school that specializes in working with minorities, one of Wright’s students inspired her to launch a unique skincare line derived from, and inspired by, high-quality natural ingredients – ranging from botanical face oil to hydrating moisturizers, body butters, scrubs and hair balms. Her African black soap is handmade in Ghana from plant-based ingredients that aid with acne and hyperpigmentation. Last year, she also launched Wright Frame of Mind, a non-profit that she says “gives children access to experiential learning programs, where they can actually learn how to become entrepreneurs with anything that they do best or that they love.”
