Next week, Dallas will be hosting the Indie Beauty Expo for the third year in a row. On Wednesday, May 15 and Thursday, May 16, beauty companies from all over the country will be in attendance at Sixty Five Hundred to talk about their products. Several Texas-based companies and founders will be there to represent the Lone Star State.

Here are the five Texas-based beauty brands to see at Indie Beauty Expo.

Sanara Skin Care

Sanara Skin Care is based in Austin and creates products that support helping those that are in the trenches to bring healing to communities that have been historically underserved.

Founder Rebekah Jensen’s parents come from a Hispanic generation who lived in labor camps and migrated from Texas to California. She never learned her native language because her parents didn’t want her to face discrimination they experienced.

Sanara products do not have synthetics, artificial colors, artificial fragrances and are not tested on animals. Jensen will be launching new products celebrating indigenous Latin American botanicals at IBE.

NHCO Botanical

Based in Addison, NHCO Botanical was founded by Nicole Hawthorne. She has PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), which one in 10 women has. While PCOS makes it difficult to conceive, Nicole did, but ended up losing her baby.

Current products include body and facial soaps. NHCO will be debuting new products at the expo.

Minimo Skin Essentials

Mary Ware founded Minimo Skin Essentials in Houston. She created the brand in an effort to solve her own personal skin problem: hyperpigmentation after childbirth.

She wanted clear skin, but not at the expense of toxic ingredients that would affect her ability to nurse her son. Minimo brings a minimalistic approach to skincare.

Moisturizers, face masks, acne control, toner, powder and lip scrubs are all in the mix at Minimo.

Minimo Skin Essentials is based out of Houston.

J Bloom Cosmetics

Based out of Plano, J Bloom’s goal is to provide you with the skincare products you want, while making you aware of the ingredients they contain.

J Bloom’s products do not have parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances. They are also are natural, cruelty-free and vegan.

J Bloom will be debuting its skincare line with its radiance rich Grand Facial Oil.

Flaunt Body

This Houston-based company was founded last year by Cameron Alexis Moore. It’s a unisex personal care line, ideal for all skin types made with clean, natural and plant based ingredients. Moore’s main product is a face mask for the bikini line.

Versatile and cruelty-free, Flaunt Body makes specialty formulations developed with bio-cellulose technology. The hydrophilic property of bio-cellulose infuses skin with powerful moisture enriching ingredients resulting in smoother, more luminous skin.

Moore recently had a distributor sign on to spread the Bikini Line Mask to the Houston area. She’ll be at Indie Beauty Expo to get the word out about her new products.
