Meet Our CEO

Bask & Bloom Essentials was created & founded by Bahamian native, Candera Thompson. While transitioning to natural hair shortly after having her first child, she experienced lots of dryness and breakage. She decided to use her love for herbal teas and at-home remedies to solve this problem while utilizing her MBA to start her business.

 Over a period of two years, she began researching and developing her line with the goal of providing healthier ingredients and eliminating common toxins.  Her first two products, More Moisture Cream and Stimulating Herbal Oil were created in 2012 and today, a full line of hair and skin care products are offered.

 The name Bask & Bloom holds true to what Candera seeks to achieve with every customer using her products, radiant skin (Bask) and healthy, flourishing hair (Bloom).  Her products have caught the attention of many beauty bloggers and editors across social media, and have landed features on popular sites such as ESSENCE and NaturallyCurly.

 Now as a mother of three, she is passionate about inspiring other women through entrepreneurship, beauty and self-care.
