Melanin Made


Organic, sustainable Jamaican black castor oil and skincare products

Melanin Made provides eco-friendly and ethical haircare, skincare and accessories. They are known for their organic, unrefined Jamaican Black Castor Oil, which can be used on the hair and body as a natural alternative to chemical-laden products.

Founder Ri is passionate about the organic trade, sustainability, and health and wellness. Her castor oil is made from the castor trees that grow on her family land in Jamaica; in looking for a safe, chemical-free oil to use on her hair and skin while pregnant a few years ago, she laid the foundations for Melanin Made.
