Formulating natural, safe, feel-good products and providing a platform that enables girls to be involved in charitable initiatives, PREP is much more than just skincare. PREP educates girls on the dangers of sun exposure along with the importance of a daily skin routine so she will be comfortable with her skin for the rest of her life. This, along with giving back to the community, is PREP’s top priority.

In keeping with the American Academy of Dermatology’s recommendations for daily use of at least SPF 30 sun protection, PREP focuses strongly on sunburn prevention. And every product in the collection is free of parabens, harsh chemicals, and unnecessary additives.

There are no cutting edge ingredients in PREP’s formulas because at this age, girls just need good tried and true, safe ingredients that won’t cause them harm as their bodies develop and grow over the years.

Join PREP Cosmetics in the journey to empower young girls to take care of their skin and their health. She’ll be thankful today to have a beauty routine that is all her own, and even more thankful tomorrow for its positive effects on her skin and her confidence.
