Founding Rx for Brown Skin®

In 2006, after listening to more than 30,000 patients complain that there wasn't a skin care line that addressed the unique needs of their skin, Dr. Taylor created Rx for Brown Skin. Rx for Brown Skin is the first clinical skin care regimen created by a women of color specifically for the unique needs of women of color. She designed every Rx for Brown Skin formula to include a complex blend of high-performance ingredients and natural botanicals to deliver the results - bright, beautiful and radiant skin and without harsh chemicals or ingredients.
