Meet Shawnelle Prestidge, celebrity makeup artist, former beauty editor and clean beauty CEO. After decades of working with global beauty brands and corporate giants, Prestidge paused her entrepreneurial endeavors to welcome her daughter into the world. Later, while her husband was recovering from a near-fatal accident, she resumed her plans to create a healing, toxin-free organic skincare line by concocting a salve to help quell his nerve pain. This turning point marked the beginning of PRESTIDGE beauté Active Organics. She’s on a mission to offer you clean, cruelty-free, Reiki-charged products. Learn more about the brand in Prestidge’s own words, below.
As the creator and founder of PbAO, my mission has been to create a powerful organic skincare line that promotes “skinceptance” and “skinclusivity”—inspiring a holistic ritual that embraces and nourishes you from the outside in. It’s for all skin types at every age, under one roof, sun, and sky!
Several decades into my career as a professional makeup artist, I set about the alchemy of a reimagined skincare line born out of a need to help heal a family trauma. The first formulation quickly evolved to target the growing list of skin and environmental concerns that continually went unmet by the beauty industry I was working in, so I dedicated my time to filling that void!
PbAO was designed to deliver transformational results for my on-set industry peers, friends, and (of course) myself and family, meeting vastly differing needs as far ranging as wee babes to grandmamas to promote healing and rebalancing for all.
PbAO uses an incomparable blend of the world’s most nutritious antioxidant-rich, organic plant botanicals paired with the alternative medicine of Reiki healing to deliver soul food for your skin and spirits. Our products are tested on celebrities, models, and industry peers, never on animals! Every batch is carefully crafted by hand in my Brooklyn studio with the finest grade natural, wildcrafted, and organic ingredients from conscious growers the world over. They are free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, or SLSs. We are environmentally focused and use recycled, upcycled, and repurposed materials wherever possible for all stages of our production.
