Urban Pearl Collective

Woman-founded by Marguerite Gray Buer

Our mission is to connect you with everything needed to help you feel happy & beautiful from the inside, out. This means skincare, beauty, self-care and wellness products sans the nasty, toxic ingredients that bring harm to us.

We shouldn’t have to compromise with the things we can control, like what we put in our bodies, on our bodies and how we treat our bodies (& minds).

Here are the ingredients they don’t allow

Why EP loves it...

I love that you can shop by vegan, award-winning or TSA approved.

They carry many of the brands on Empower Palette including: Flynn & King, Ever Eco, Salt by Hendrix, Vapour Beauty, HUM Nutrition, Soji Energy and more!

They sell everything from haircare and makeup to supplements, candles and water bottles.

Women-Owned Products

Join Dough

Woman-founded by Anna Palmer & Vanessa Bruce

With every purchase we make a statement about what we value. That’s why we created Dough - a platform to discover and shop from hundreds of woman-owned businesses. It will take years for the pay gap to close from the top down, but by directing your dollars to phenomenal women, you’re helping women rise by creating change from the bottom up.

If every person in the U.S. spent just $20 at a woman-owned business, it would drive more than $5 billion toward female-led companies each month. Our mission is to make it fun and easy for shoppers to direct their wallet power to women.

— Anna Palmer

Why EP loves it...

We search for the crème de la crème products from female-founded brands. You get to shop them daily. This is so true! Every brand is so incredible and something you didn’t know you needed.

Dough does not take a cut from the businesses.

Our mission is to put money back into the hands of women. We negotiate a discount that works for both changemakers and merchants. We don’t take a penny from any sale.

How does Dough make money?

When you pay for membership you are employing the Dough team and covering the costs it takes to support the hundreds of fellow female founders in our network. A few of our operating costs include: marketing, relationship management, software subscriptions, salaries, and more. From the entire team, thank you for making this possible!

Korean Beauty

Nudie Glow

Woman-founded by Ruby Wang

Growing up, unlike other girls, I never got into makeup. Am I crazy to not want to look "pretty"? Maybe. But I believed looking after the skin is much more important than hiding it, and being confident enough to show the world your nude Nudie skin can empower you to feel more beautiful.

On a trip to Korea, I discovered K-beauty. Could this be the secret to the Korean flawless skin? Surely! 

Ever since starting a Korean beauty routine, I have felt more confident leaving the house with a bare face, not to mention the amount of $$$ I have saved from not buying exxy western products and makeup.

— Ruby Wang

EP Soko Glam.png

Soko Glam

Woman co-founded by Charlotte Cho

A California native, I was just out of college when I moved halfway around the world to South Korea. There, I discovered that Koreans have a skin-first philosophy—they believe that skincare should be enjoyable and that it’s an investment in their overall well-being. 

My hope is that learning about beauty from a Korean perspective will change the way you think about your skin and how you treat it. It’s an amazing feeling knowing that you’re the expert on your own skin and you’re working hard to make it the healthiest it can be.

— Charlotte Cho

You have to filter the Korean beauty products for cruelty-free and vegan.

Why EP loves these...

I love that you can try Korean-loved brands without traveling there. You can shop these incredible brands at 1 shop.

+ 8 cruelty-free Korean brands
