Plant based skincare is what Cultured Naturals Body Care is all about! Marrying nature with science, Cultured Naturals Body Care (CNBC) sources ingredients from local Virgin Islands and Caribbean farmers to make high quality handmade products that smell amazing while boasting topical and aromatherapeutic benefits. Founder and CEO Ramone Reid Ventura launched the company back in 2015 after being diagnosed with cancer. “CNBC accidentally started as part of my selfcare and healing journey after my diagnosis,” said Reid Ventura. “People became interested in my products and that started the journey of creating items for sale.” Reid Ventura shared the importance of product research and development. “In the infancy of the business, I would sell products in a health food store and ask customers for ongoing feedback.” This is how she began refining product formulas, getting them to the point where customers started incorporating them into their self-care and wellness regimens.
There are several things that make CNBC a unique brand. First and foremost, it was created by a healthcare professional with extensive knowledge about biochemistry, Caribbean plant life and naturopathic remedies. The brand’s focus is centered on creating safe, toxic-free products that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Functional and effective, all items are made with ingredients that aid with minor hair and skin concerns such as acne, eczema, hyperpigmentation and much more. The company prides itself on being purposeful within their community. “We are intentional in working with our farmers and other artisans to also amplify their businesses so that we can all build and strengthen our local economy together.”
CNBC offers a wide variety of products for the face, hair, skin and home. Lovingly formulated with care, some of their products include plant powered ingredients and essential oils such as lemongrass, aloe vera, noni, papaya, neem, peppermint, lavender and virgin coconut oil. Additionally, CNBC offers private parties and events where attendees can make their own candles, face masks and learn about the art of history and power of the headwrap. Cultured Naturals Body Care is located at #55 Company Street in downtown Christiansted. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
