This collection was created to give back to the illustrious Florida A&M University. 10% of the collections proceeds will directly benefit Florida A&M University students. 
Founded on October 3, 1887 as the State Normal College for Colored Students FAMU has served & shaped hundreds of thousands of majority BIPOC students into professionals, millionaires & service-orientated individuals.
2x Alumna Bree Ross & her brand Brown Rose Essentials wanted to create a campaign to highlight FAMU’s greatness & donate to the university through our love for providing non-toxic skin & body care essentials to our community! 
The colors and scent are inspired by the infamous orange & green color scheme that is attributed to the agriculture & citrus that surrounded the beautiful campus of FAMU in its early days .
The sweet scent of citrus throughout this collection engulfs you in a nostalgic experience that’s reminiscent of the environmental history of the College of Love & Charity. The items in this  collection include skin loving ingredients like hemp seed & jojoba oils, shea, mango & cocoa butters, as well as botanical extracts like Sea Moss & Calendula. 
Keeping true to Brown Rose Essentials’ mission of encouraging melanated individuals to adopt cleaner lifestyle choices by providing toxic free self-care essentials that promote optimal skin health.
Begin your self- care experience with a handcrafted body bar, called “Bragg Bar” named after the stadium that holds so many FAMUan memories, Bragg stadium. 
Or lather up in a orange or green shower gel that is infused with botanical extracts for extra skin loving properties, called “So Fresh & So Clean” name after a Black anthem played among HBCUS in the early 2000s 
Next in the collection we have “Rattler’s Revenge” a play on words to highlight the power of this sugar scrub that sloughs away dead skin cells revealing naturally beautiful melanated skin! 
Lastly, seal in that moisture & skin loving goodness with “Rattler Love” a soft & luscious whipped body butter that moisturizes your skin & is as soft & nourishing as beautiful Rattler Love that is commonly found on The Hill! 
This collection will be available for sale during FAMU’s 2021 homecoming week, October 24-October 31st. All order will be shipped by November 12,2021 . 10% of collection’s proceeds will directly benefit Florida A&M University students.
