We believe that perfect skin is healthy skin no matter the tone, that skincare is a journey, and skin education is key. We focus on diverse skin tones because high pigmentation skin has unique needs often underserved by mainstream brands. We are a black-owned brand with a purpose: to support our #glower’s skincare journey into healthy, glowing skin with proven formulations and professional advice.
How it all started
Our brand started with Dr. Angelo Thrower M.D, P.A, in 1992 when he sought to create a line of products his ethnic patients could use with great results.
Early in his childhood, Dr. Thrower became interested in medicine through his mother, a hospital worker, and later during his teenage years, while struggling with acne, became curious about dermatology.
Dr. Thrower got his start as a graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine and the George Washington University Medical Center. Although dermatology was a common specialty, Dr. Thrower found few professionals understood the needs of high pigmentation skin and even fewer graduate programs taught it.
As a result, Dr. Thrower had to teach himself about dermatology for high pigmentation skin. A pioneer in this distinctive field, and with more than 3 decades of clinical experience, Dr. Thrower is regarded an expert. He has written 3 textbooks and is the official physician for the Miami Heat Team.

Skincare for diverse tones was non-existent in the 90s. Observing this need, Dr. Thrower created the first skincare system that addresses the primary concerns of diverse skin tones: acne & discoloration, dryness & irritation.
Since then, Dr. Thrower’s Skincare regimens have been tested, refined & vetted by thousands of Dr. Thrower’s patients at Dr. Thrower’s Medspa in Holywood Florida.
