Gloryscent Beauty Founder and CEO

Rafaela Gonzalez, Founder & Formulator

It’s no surprise that individuals with darker complexions have been underrepresented in the beauty and cosmetics world. Growing up as a Hispanic woman, I believed that fair skin and easily manageable hair were the epitome of beauty. That notion was challenged when I confronted my fear of embracing my natural hair. This led me on a path of self-discovery and self-love, during which I experimented with numerous products to find the best fit for me.

Throughout this journey, I fell in love with self-care and the beauty industry.  Gloryscent is geared towards people of all skin tones, and I am thrilled to provide excellent service to everyone!

Inclusion in Clean Beauty

I came to the startling realization that only a handful of brands catered to the need of women of color. Not only was there a glaring scarcity of such brands, but I also uncovered the concerning presence of harmful ingredients in many popular products. Shockingly, research reveals that over 75% of products targeting women of color contain toxic or potentially dangerous ingredients.

This eye-opening revelation ignited a passion within me to create a brand where women of color are not merely an afterthought, but the motivation behind its founding. Our products are not only for WOC but we understand that there is a knowledge gap, therefore, we have a mission and responsibility to bring awareness to this community.

Air Pollution & Sun Exposure

Not only did I come to the realization that there are many potentially harmful ingredients in self-care products but I also came to know that environmental aggressors such as air pollution and over sun exposure are two major contributors to how we age. The data says that over 85% of the way we age is due to environmental aggressors. 

Read Details Below: 

  • Air pollutants damage the skin by inducing oxidative stress. 
  • Exposure to ultraviolet radiation has been associated with extrinsic skin aging and skin cancers. 
  • Pollution breaks down collagen and oxidizes the lipid layer in the skin, which impairs skin-barrier function
  • Smog can disturb the barrier
  • The compromise of the barrier can cause dehydration, sensitivity, uneven skin tone, dullness, acne, and premature aging.


  • Increasing the amount of antioxidants in our diet and skincare routine
  • Using antioxidant rich skincare products that add a layer of added protection
  • Regularly cleansing and exfoliating your skin and routinely deep cleansing with a facial that can draw out impurities
  • Refraining from using ingredients that can strip your skin of vital oils and degrade the skin barrier
