EOSSI BEAUTY CREATES CBD SKINCARE WITH ESSENTIAL OILS AND AROMATIC ANCIENT RESINS.
IN 2020, SHANNON KAYGI AND ROCHONNE SANCHEZ founded Denver-based Eossi Beauty (eossibeauty.com), a skincare line that features CBD and promises to “release your inner goddess.” The inventive new brand launched with its signature Facial Glow Oil #8, which blends 1,000 mg of CBD with Moroccan argan, grapeseed, rosehip, vitamin E and coconut oils. What sets Eossi apart in a crowded space of CBD products is the founders’ backgrounds.

Kaygi, who serves as the chief executive officer, is also the founder of SYK Holdings, a hemp wholesale network. Sanchez, Eossi’s chief glow officer, founded MUSE, a risk management firm in the cannabis space. Building on that industry experience, the duo has created a CBD beauty brand with reliably sourced ingredients.
“After we’d completed the formulation and testing for the facial glow oil, we set our sights on developing a body oil that would absorb quickly and leave your skin feeling like velvet,” Sanchez says. The Athena brightening body oil features a refreshing blend of tangerine and bergamot designed to awaken the senses. Eossi is also adding a new Hygeia balm, perfect for moisturizing skin, lips and even tattoos.
All the brand’s products have a certificate of analysis, having undergone a full panel test for heavy metals, pesticides and microbials, and they’ve been vetted for accurate dosages. The CBD landscape is filled with potential snake oils, and Sanchez warns consumers to be wary of using beauty products without a COA.
Eossi’s facial oil is fast becoming a fan favorite, and the brand continues to grow. “We have big plans for Eossi Beauty,” Sanchez says. “We’re developing a cosmetic line that will be focused on enhancing your natural beauty—not covering it up.”
