Here at SELF, our inboxes are constantly blowing up with emails about buzzworthy new product launches and collaborations that aim to revolutionize your self-care routine. In our monthly series, The Wellness Forecast, we handpick a few of the latest releases within wellness, style, beauty, tech, food, and fitness. In February, we kept our eyes peeled for newness from Black-owned businesses, plus love-inspired collections and collaborations (we're suckers for Valentine's Day). And despite the short month, we certainly weren't disappointed by the number of new product launches that came pouring in.
You'll see tech launches like Peloton's gamified cycling rides and Sunroom, an app focusing on women and nonbinary content creators, plus new products from our favorite brands like Our Place and Parachute. And that's just the beginning. Read on to see all of the brands and products SELF can't stop talking about this month.
It's always a good day when we get a new skin-care brand put on our radar. This month brought the launch of Katini Skin, founded by Japanese African artist Katini Yamaoka. The brand launched with four silky facial oils (ranging from $75 to $115) with ingredients sourced from Yamaoka's native Japan, Africa, and Australia. Each targets a different skin concern, like acne or environmental irritation. Katini launched in partnership with the nonprofit Black Progress Matters.
