Meet Tenesha Carter of Aqualime Skincare in Montgomery

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tenesha Carter.

Founded in 2012, Aqualime’s journey began when creator Tenesha Carter, made her first batch of oatmeal bath for her son, who is suffering with a mild case of eczema. It is where her passion for skincare began, which soon expanded into so much more including natural facial care and clean home staples.

After obtaining her Bachelors of Art in Fashion Merchandising, Tenesha worked in retail management for seven years. Always having an eye for detail, she used her creative skills throughout the years until she found her niche. From product design and development to sourcing US grown ingredients, every detail has been carefully selected and created from her vision. Every product is always lovingly handmade with natural ingredients that are botanically infused, cruelty free and scented with pure essential oils.

Has it been a smooth road?
In the beginning of my career, I have struggled to be taken as a serious brand. Being an African American female business owner, when approaching boutiques and shops to introduce my products I would be quickly dismissed. I’ve learned a lot since my early beginnings and my brand has grown with each opportunity. I have learned to look at each closed door as another way to become better and other avenues to obtain greater opportunities.

Aqualime Skincare – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Aqualime Skincare specializes in natural, small batch bath & body products that promote healthy self-care and eczema relief. Every product is handcrafted by me in me at home workshop and infused with organic ingredients and botanicals. I work hard to source only US made packaging and ingredients. Over 90% of my products are packaged in glass to help reduce waste and promote recycling. My product line ranges from body scrubs, bath soaks, body oils and balms to facial clay mask, toners and soaps. Our top sellers have been our All Over Body Balm and Sugar Body Scrubs. I am most proud of my recent feature in the June 2020 issue of Southern Living Magazine. My passion for offering clean, natural products that promote healthy skincare plus aids in eczema relief for all skin types is what sets me apart from other skincare brands.
