About

Be the change.

Millions of people are affected by domestic violence each day.

Solarté is a beautiful brand with a beautiful mission and we use our brand to take a stance in the overall cycle to end abuse. We take extraordinary ingredients and turn them into a product that inspires fearless lives filled with confidence, joy, & wellbeing.

By simply switching to a better product of lotion and creams, as a conscious consumer, you too can also help empower women and all individuals affected by domestic violence, and support safe houses throughout the nation.

The statistics on Domestic Violence are shocking. Help be the change.

Join our journey.

Solarté is not a charity, but a business that uses its position in the Natural Beauty Industry to challenge consumers to champion social change. Our initial collection has been perfected and with the rights to 40 formulas, there is only growth in our future. This company has been rebranded to positively impact women. We need your support to develop into a powerful incubator to end domestic violence and abuse and remove the stigma that it carries.

This Kickstarter Campaign will enable us to offer our existing shower cream and shampoo + conditioner to the market, increase our marketing budget, and aid in overall development. In the future expansion of Solarté over the next decade we plan to extend our collection to men's, children's, and outdoor lines, and eventually open Solarté regional retreat centers to help women in their healing process!

Lose yourself in our story.

Solarté’s elegant heritage is rich and full of charm. Our brand, developed by a quintessential French family over 22 years ago, was created and manufactured in Provence, France and then sold in our founders’ quaint French boutique in the international section of Park Avenue in Winter Park, Florida. With their vision and the extraordinary national brand ambassador who joined them in 2004, Solarté became a cherished brand in the luxury market amongst loyal customers all over the world.

That extraordinary brand ambassador was Angela Hackett Jenkins to whom the founders sold Solarté in 2004 and who now leads Solarté Collections, LLC. Angela and our entire team are proud to continue the tradition of Solarté providing elegant, shea-rich, nourishing products to our customers in spas, hotels, boutiques, clubs, and on our website.

Now that we have relaunched our brand in the contemporary era, we are proud that Solarté products are still made in France with our exacting high standards, and that customers who have cherished Solarté in the luxury market for so many years, find they are falling in love with Solarté all over again. We invite those of you who are just discovering Solarté to experience our fine products and enjoy becoming a Solarté loyalist.

As you join our #SolartéStrong culture, you will undoubtedly want to live our mission.

When Angela became CEO of Solarté, she weaved her personal experiences into the creation of a beautiful brand. Angela escaped a toxic relationship, went through the healing process with the support of her friends and family, and found healthy love in her new marriage with her husband and son. As a survivor of domestic violence, she pledged to use this newly acquired platform to enact positive social change by ingraining her story into a powerful mission.

Learn about our extraordinary ingredients.

While we are tucked away in the heart of Winston-Salem, NC, Solarté’s exclusive line of luxurious body and hair care products are inspired by our heritage of offering superior products made with pure, natural ingredients from the South of France and nutrient-rich shea from the karite trees of Africa.

The experience of indulging in the natural, luxurious feel of shea butter infused with the wonderful fragrances of relaxing lavender and invigorating verbena is transformative for the body and spirit. We are dedicated to providing you with the quality ingredients to help your skin flourish.

All of our products are paraben and cruelty free.

Experience our elegant products.

Solarté’s Collections of Lavender and Verbena luxury body and skin care are currently available online and in select retail boutiques, spas, and gift stores. Nourish your body with our exquisite products as detailed below.

 Discover our luxurious rewards.

We appreciate the support from all of our backers. To show our gratitude, we will provide you with a variety of rewards for your commitment to Solarté. Each tier heading is representative of how we aim to live and inspire others to live each day.

 In addition to our exquisite products, we have included other items in the reward bundles and they are detailed below.

Hear our praises.

All of our valued customers love Solarté products– you will too!

Embrace the Solarté way.

At Solarté, we believe feeling beautiful, nurtured and indulged is a luxury that should be enjoyed every day. Made with nourishing, soothing shea and the scents of lush, relaxing lavender and invigorating, revitalizing verbena, Solarté captures the elegant essence of Provence with its exclusive collection of luxuriating hair and body care products. Founded in the South of France in 1996, Solarté stays true to its authentic heritage, using natural, paraben-free and ethically produced ingredients. 

 We aim high in our efforts to empower all women to live their lives boldly, confidently, and without fear. We are especially committed to women who are working to overcome adverse relationships and life circumstances. To do so we provide products and financial support to safe houses for women all over the country.

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to raise a pre-determined amount of capital within a month. This leads to our greatest challenge– not being able to expand our collection in the fall without sufficient funds. There are no risks associated with the completion of our project and all of the products offered in reward bundles are available. Due to our company team size, we have estimated reward distribution to be scheduled for the month of September to ensure timely delivery. Locations outside of North America should expect October delivery.
