I co-founded MANTL as a product line designed for everyone, but it was inspired by my search for a skincare regimen that would feel great on both my face and scalp.
Karamo BrownShop Karamo's Favorites
When I decided to shave my head and accept that I was balding, I knew it was important to take care of my scalp just like the skin on my face.
But I had such a difficult time finding products that worked on my face, scalp, and skin type. Out of frustration, I decided to create an empowering and inclusive brand with products everyone can enjoy. You can use MANTL on your face or your scalp (or both!) — regardless of gender identity, skin tone, or skin type.
With MANTL, I want to celebrate the differences that make us unique—and in the process, I hope to make your skincare search a bit easier and less frustrating.
What I'm using the most
The Complete Routine
I know this has all of our products, but that's why I love it! It comes with everything you need for a day to night routine. It's easy and simple—and takes all the guesswork out of creating a regimen.
And with a subscription, I don't even have to think about reordering! I use the Cleanser morning and night, SPF in the morning, Age Defense before bed, and the No-Shine Sheets whenever my skin is a bit shiny or oily.
But If I Had to Choose:
Invisible Daily SPF 30
My favorite product in The Complete Routine is the SPF. It was a struggle to wear SPF daily because traditional sunscreens are greasy and always left behind white streaks. So we formulated a completely CLEAR sunscreen that also feels hydrating! I knew we created the perfect formula when my sisters tried to steal this product from me on our vacation!
Age Defense Moisturizer
Also found in The Complete Routine is our moisturizer, made with awesome ingredients like Niacinimide and Squalane. Not too long ago, I learned that de-hydrated skin could lead to more oil production, which can cause clogged pores. And with the LA dry climate and all my traveling, this is a must to keep my skin hydrated, balanced, and looking youthful.
