Be Natural.
Give Glory.
Be Beautiful.

Artisanal creations designed to promote the natural beauty of healthy skin and hair.

 

Skin and hair challenges can have a profound impact on our emotional health. One reason our skin and hair concerns can have such an impact on our self-esteem is because of the visibility to others, and sometimes management of those concerns are a lifelong struggle.

 

Life is too short to be preoccupied with such issues. Our hope is that our products will help ease your symptoms and encourage self-confidence.

 

Our products are all hand-made with natural, organic, fair-trade, and/or wild-crafted ingredients from around the world. Our luxurious creations are made in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. We promise to never dilute these precious ingredients with water or other fillers; nor will we market ingredients that only exist in trace amounts. We promise formulations without parabens, sulfates, and other harmful chemicals.

In addition to our respect for the power of natural ingredients, we are very passionate about reducing the suicide rate and encouraging adoption. Please see our Benevolence page for more information about the organizations we support.

Why was I inspired to create my own skincare line?

My company was born out of tragedy. I lost a parent to suicide, a few months later I lost my dog, and just a few months after that I lost another parent to a heart attack. All of that loss occurred in eight months. This period was the darkest I had ever experienced, and around that time, I developed skin and scalp issues. Perplexed by the fierceness and speed with which these conditions took hold, I struggled for a time to find a solution. I eventually realized that the problem was nothing external but rather something internal; the problem was grief and stress, which now created external symptoms that needed to be addressed. While seeking answers, I discovered that the products I was using were full of potentially dangerous synthetic chemicals that may actually be irritating more than helping.

When I was unable to find natural options that were created for the issues I was having or that produced results, I decided to create my own. I channeled all of my grief into several years of researching natural ingredients, their properties, and how they work together to create highly effective, luxurious solutions for skin and scalp concerns.

How did I choose the name 826 & Co.?

The original name was Trinitè Organiques. Trinitè is French for Trinity, which represented the three losses that led to the start of this company; my faith that got me through those losses; and the three elements associated with every product, frankincense, myrrh and gold. It was difficult to part ways with the name but business reasons necessitated a name change.

826 & Co. represents a new era for me and my family; an era ushered in by the adoption of my daughter, Bella, on August 26. Bella brought new life to everything and that included the eventual relaunch and rebrand of this company. Bella loves to help me create products and always has an opinion to offer. One day this will be her company to run and continue to create lush products that we know you will enjoy! The & Co., well, that’s the rest us.

Jennifer “Mommy”

Hi, My name is Jennifer. Jaime is my oldest child. I have always enjoyed a special relationship with my daughters, we are not just Mother & daughters, we are very good friends. We enjoy each other’s company; we have shared highs & lows, joys & sorrows, laughter & tears. So it was a natural fit to share this journey of 826 & Co together. I love being “Mommy”, but sometimes I enjoy just being “one of the girls.” So naming & testing products & then receiving compliments from the results has been wonderful, because even in my mid-sixties, I still love receiving compliments. In addition to naming & testing, I also help with inventory and bookkeeping and I am becoming really good at using social media to market the company. It’s easy to promote something when you love it! “Be salt, be light, speak the truth in love…” Galatians 6:10

Jana “Little Sister & Auntie”

Hi Friends!
My name is Jana Leigh but better known as the “little sister” & “auntie.” Like most sisters we love to give each other a hard time, but 826 & Co. is an exception. My sister’s passion for crafting this line from love and the chance to name products like VLip Gloss has me hooked as a customer and an eager contributor! I am also the one who gives the most honest feedback on packaging & web design. That pop of green on the labels, was all me. 826 & Co. is more than a line of organic skin solutions, it is part of our family. Just as a the company has grown, we’ve all grown from learning what it means to be driven by faith & love. I can’t express how honored I am to part of this journey & a member of this family.

Tia “Sister & Auntie Tia”

I’d like to take this opportunity to talk about a very special lady who set out on a mission & chose not to allow anything or anyone to stand in her way of accomplishing it…her name is Jaime, the founder of 826 & Co. I, of course know Jaime as my sister but it is time for everyone to know the side that I’ve had the privilege of getting to know & that’s the determined, drive, resolute, unwavering business woman that she is. It has been a pleasure to share this journey with her. We are often texting & emailing round-the-clock to make decisions on what products to create, which to launch with, what size, and the target client. As a team we all bring our uniqueness to the process which we hope reflects the diversity of our clients. We challenge each other in design, production, etc., to produce luxurious effective products with packaging customers will find attractive. I am so excited about the launch of this awesome line of products & I can’t wait for you to be a part of our journey, as well…& oh, by the way, I’m Tia.
