Is Baltesta Bean Natural Skincare a “plant-based” beauty brand?
Yep, we sure are! Baltesta Bean Natural Skincare is an all-natural, plant-based, Farm & Sea skincare brand that focuses on the use of seed-based ingredients ethically sourced from the Earth’s farms and the World's seas and oceans to effectively address the unique skin concerns endured by people of color. Such ingredients are biologically designed to protect, enhance, restore, and maintain the melanin allure of black & brown skin. Our product formulations are grounded in this four-prong approach to plant-based holistic beauty with tried and true ingredients that have been passed down over generations.

How much of the product should I use?
Keep in mind that a little product goes a long way. Using a lot of product will not speed up the results process, but it will speed up the costs associated with a healthy skincare regime. Two pumps of product should be enough to cover face and neck area.
How do I incorporate BBSKin products into my skincare routine?
First things first! Only use products on clean skin. Our product line consists of all 7-steps to achieve fully nurtured skin. Each product has a role that can serve in place of what you are using now. Try it. Take the chance of difference. It can only help.
When should i expect to see results?
Diversity and the power of difference is our first love and a core value of ours. With that being said, we have to acknowledge the fact that everyone's skin wellness journey is different. As with all solution-based products, results happen over time and depend upon the person. Hyperpigmentation, acne, dryness, and anti-aging are common skin concerns amongst all age groups. However, our differences in lifestyles and behaviors affects the timing results of products. Therefore, timing of outcomes will vary from person to person. Please be mindful that older skin matters such as hyperpigmentation, scars, and etc. will take longer to see results.
