About Us

AcARRE® was created in 2018 on the foundation of utilizing plant biodiversity to create innovative multi-use bioactive treatment products that bring balance to the microbiome for healthy scalp and skin. AcARRE® is inspired by African and Pacific Islander ancestry using natural ingredients crafted for superior multi-use products that work in sync with the skin’s natural elements.

Developing products with the consumer in mind has been the driving force behind AcARRE’s multi-use products. They are made in small batches with ethically sourced ingredients, ensuring that AcARRE® products not only surpass expectations in quality and made with integrity showing a genuine commitment to social, economic, and environmental appreciation.

The Founder

Tracy Hicks-Kearse

AcARRE® award-winning Founder, CEO, and Chief Chemist Tracey is an esteemed chemical engineer who has worked in product development and marketing for over eighteen years. While working for a skin and hair care company, Tracey was approached by a friend looking for a product that she could use on her scalp. At this time, Tracey’s sister also came forward requesting a high-quality multi-use product for her face and scalp. These inquiries planted the seed for Tracey to develop a product with multiple uses for skin and hair. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, the decision to begin her own company was a natural one, and soon AcARRE® was formed.

Shortly after starting AcARRE®, Tracey discovered she was expecting her first child. Becoming a mother, working full-time, and being a business owner, inspired Tracey to develop multi-use bioactive products made from natural ingredients for balance to the scalp and skin, for the beauty minimalist.

Creatively, she enjoys brainstorming on innovative ideas that have a direct impact on consumers and the influence that drives those changes. Taking her aspirations to another level allows her to pursue her passion every day.

For every item purchased we are offsetting our carbon footprint…..

We are delighted to have partnered with Ecodrive LLC to become a carbon neutral company by offsetting our emissions through tree planting. Not only will a Mangrove tree be planted for every order placed through our website, we are also working with Ecodrive to offset all of our carbon emissions related to our supply chain, from source to skin.

Mangroves are one of the most effective and economic methods of offsetting carbon emissions, absorbing 680lbs over their lifetime. These Mangroves are planted in Madagascar by locals who provide quarterly updates on the trees we plant, helping to alleviate poverty and providing full traceability. The land on which the trees are planted is usually owned by local tribal communities or federally owned national forests and as well as benefiting the earth, our partnership will create employment for local villagers living in poverty. Amounting to one workday for every 100 trees planted, the community takes part in every step, from collecting the seeds to sewing them.
