Singer Frank Ocean’s Mom, Katonya Breaux was recently celebrated for her success with her product line for black skin care. Unsun Cosmetics was created by the savvy business woman back in 2014. Since the product line has been launched, it has been picked up by Dermstore, which is the second-largest online store in the country. Katonya was recently interviewed by Nylon to talk about the new success of the product and being mom to one of most creative singers on the scene.

After leaving her construction company a few years ago, Katonya was searching to do something different. At the same time, she was searching for a sunscreen that didn’t leave that annoying film on her face and contained natural products. After conversating with a friend who had a lab and owned his own hair care line, her own product, Unsun was born. Katonya is super excited about the take-off of Unsun. It showing the support that black owned businesses need and deserves. She tells Nylon, “I love it when we do something for us, and it works and it’s needed.

Unsun is an SPF based brand that has been on Katonya’s mind for over 20 years. The product is the result of Katonya’s search for real skin care in regards to her own encounter with sun damage.  She tried some over the counter products and nothing seemed to work and only left her with irritated skin. That’s why Unsun is water based, mineral tinted and contains tons of other natural-based ingredients.
