There is Magic in Melanin Onesie

"A few months ago my five year old daughter walked up to me upset and said, ‘Lucy (my one year old daughter) is cuter than me because she has peach skin.’ It was shattering for me to hear that but not at all a surprising statement. I knew it was coming."

"I then explained to her that all skin is beautiful and that her gold skin is just as lovely as her sister’s peach skin. I explained that her skin is darker because she has more melanin and There is Magic in Melanin. My daughter loves magic so she was delighted by this."

We've teamed up with our dear friend, Clare Brown (@clarebellecwb) to spread even more melanin magic with the debut of the “There is magic in Melanin” kids tee and onesie. $5 of every shirt or onesie sold will be going to Girls for A Change, a nonprofit youth development organization aimed at empowering Black girls and other girls of color in Central Virginia.
