Hampton Alum Erika B. Clarke, Creates Organic Beauty Brand

Erika B. Clark is the Founder and CEO of eHoney Skin Care LLC, a natural and organic beauty brand with products for all skin tones. Her journey to eHoney began while still enrolled at Hampton University. Erika completed research in botany, the study of plants, during her sophomore year. In her junior year of college as a Pre-Med student, she volunteered at the Skin of Color Research Institute at Hampton University. Shortly thereafter she found herself immersed in research on the role that various molecular markers play in Keloid Fibrosis, the structure and function of the skin and the process of wound healing. Keloids, an overgrowth of scar tissue, are a phenomenon most commonly found in people with skin of color. In May 2014, after a stressful senior year completing her B.S in Biology, Erika found herself with an acne problem and an even deeper interest in skin care. Through time and experimentation, she was able to treat some of her breakouts through diet and home remedies. As her passion grew she began working side by side with a dermatologist and in 2016 she decided to work with a lab to create her own skin care line that she has launched under eHoney LLC. Since the Launch Party in November, she has sponsored fashion and modeling agency events in Washington, DC, been a vendor at Cocktails with Claire, Fashion Bomb Daily’s Editor in Chief’s annual shopping event in NYC, and been featured as Fashion Bomb Daily’s “Bomb Product of the Day”” on December 15, 2016. In spring 2017, eHoney collaborated with Weareonyx, a subscription box service and online store curated with our melanin in mind and beauty for brown girls and sponsored Sassboxx’s Sassy Success Brunch in NYC honoring Black Girl Bosses.

“Our mission is to give you skin that glows like honey because the more you glow the more others glow back.”
