Suggested Use

T&t recommends lathering their bar in your hands to cleanse your face, and we love using a loofah in the shower. there are natural plantain peel ash and plant particles that may be too abrasive when used directly on the delicate skin of your gorgeous face, but our silicone exfoliating face tool is gentle enough to use on your face daily. tone your skin to cleanse/brighten/prepare it for your routine’s next steps with ‘the Quickie’ facial toning spray, apply your favorite water-based serums, and wrap up your multi-step regimen with ‘the Nightcap.’

Founder of TAYLOR & tess

We are a family-run, Black woman-owned CBD skincare line that is formulated with effective ingredients that our ancestors have been using for hundreds and thousands of years (cue our nourishing African Black Soap cleansing bar). We are committed to de-stigmatizing cannabis/hemp and social equity efforts that help our black and brown sisters and brothers who are incarcerated for their use of a plant that people are capitalizing on and denying them access to.


Hemp has helped my family heal in so many ways, so we want to do our part in educating others, positively affecting social + economic change, and de-stigmatizing hemp and cannabis. Intersecting the hemp and beauty industries will allow us to reach more people and introduce them to a perhaps unfamiliar benefit of the plant.

Tess Taylor Plant-based Skincare Founder
My father is a Vietnam Marine Corps veteran who worked for the military and government for 48 years. In the last decade, he has had over 10 major surgeries. This long medical journey began in Germany, where I attended high school. For 10 years, he has been prescribed painkillers/ opioids. His chronic pain always comes back, and his interpersonal relationships have deteriorated as a result of the psychological side effects of opioids combined with PTSD. Since trying a more holistic and plant-based approach to his healing with cannabis and hemp, he has been opioid free for nearly a year. My mother is an Army veteran and is nine years younger than my dad. Two years ago, she started to feel the daily, chronic pains of aging but did not want to go down the same road as my dad. I convinced her to try a topical, then a gummy, then a vape pen. She’s now a self-proclaimed advocate.


“Named in high regard for her beloved family roots, founder of TAYLOR + tess, Tess Taylor brings to life a CBD skincare for “Women, Men, Neither and Both.” She’s a true entrepreneur at the core, and this woman’s mission to promote diversity and inclusion while breaking social barriers are just two of the many reasons why we love Tess. Her organic, plant-based ‘menage a trois for the face’ promises to nourish your skin with a regimen that seamlessly fits into busy schedules. TAYLOR + tess’s three-piece facial set is comprised of the ‘in the Buff’ cleansing bar & industrial hemp sponge, ‘the Quickie’ refreshing spray of nutrients for the face, and ‘the Nightcap’ cream to rest and replenish.”- MJ Lifestyle Magazine


”TAYLOR + tess’ skin-care products also feature CBD along with an impressive supporting cast of active ingredients, in this case the antioxidants in vitamins C and E, as well as blueberry, raspberry and cranberry extracts. For older skin, vitamin C is supposed to increase the production of collagen, which slows with age, and rosehip seed oil, touted as “nature’s retinol” may smooth fine lines. The Nightcap is a “feel-good” product – not only because it feels and smells so pleasant, but because of a lineup of natural ingredients that are above reproach, and packaging that is entirely sustainable.”- Forbes
