Rafaela Gonzalez
Founder & Formulator

It’s no secret that people with higher levels of melanin have been underrepresented in the beauty and cosmetic industry. As a Hispanic woman, I was raised thinking that light skin and hair you could comb your fingers through was the ideal form of beauty and this ideology was confronted when I felt fear of growing out my natural hair. I went through a journey of self-acceptance and self-love which also lead me to creating products for myself and purchasing many different products to see what worked for me.

As a result of this journey, I developed a love for self-care and beauty. After that I noticed that there were very few brands out there that were created with the colored woman in mind! In addition, I became aware of the harmful ingredients in many brands. And I am one who believes that nature holds all the
components to create effective products to aid in achieving a healthy complexion.

With this understanding I was inspired to create something where women of color weren’t the last thought; rather they were the inspiration and catalyst
that brought it to life. However, Gloryscent is a brand inclusive to humans of all shades and I am excited to serve you all well!


As a new and upcoming brand, Gloryscent aims to continue growing better sustainability practices. We do our best to source ingredients from reputable vendors who are also dedicated to minimizing their environmental impact.

Our product range is packaged in beautiful glass containers inserted in recyclable carton boxes and shipped in 100% recycled corrugated boxes.


We create products packed with active and rare botanicals with high antioxidant qualities for ultimate and lasting results. 

Our formulations are free of fillers, cheap and toxic ingredients.

Small Batches

Our product are created in small batches with love and care. This assures that our customers receive freshly made skincare directly from our hands to yours. 


Sun damage

Sun protection is essential for all shades. Though we receive protection from melanin,
darker skin tones are vulnerable to pigment irregularities.

Consequences of over exposure to the sun are:

  • Pre-mature aging 
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone –
    all too common in women of color

Air pollution

Effects of air pollution in the skin:

  • Clogged pores
  • Dull skin
  • Dark spots
  • Acne, eczema


GLORYSCENT Beauty is a pro-melanin skincare brand created to facilitate the journey to healthy radiant skin by protecting the skin from environmental aggressors such as air pollution and sun damage.
