“I think it's having correct boundaries and understanding that like you know, finding work is not the same as finding a date night,” the skincare co-founder continued. “There are appropriate avenues — work hours, for instance, that's been a big learning curve for me.”

Through launching S’ABLE Labs genderless skincare with Idris, an extension of the pair’s lifestyle brand which launched in 2021, Sabrina adds that she “can’t imagine doing it with anyone else.”

Beautycon LA presented by Walmart ® returns after a four-year hiatus to its hometown of Los Angeles this weekend, welcoming on day one the biggest names in beauty, fashion and entertainment, including Sabrina, fellow beauty brand founder Tia Mowry, Marsai Martin, Alabama Barker, Shirley Raines, Britni Ricard and more.

Sabrina, who grew up in Canada and is of Somali descent, explains at the event that she launched S’ABLE Labs skincare to tend to the issues Black people have with their skin that are unaccommodated for in the beauty industry.

“So things like post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Just finding products that address it holistically rather than trying to solve the problem after the fact.”

“We’re looking at how we inhibit melanin excess production in the first place,” Sabrina explains. “So we’re making antioxidants, we’re making anti-inflammatories. There's so many amazing ingredients on the (African) continent that are so popular that I watched my mom use growing up. So just trying to get that all in.”

Sabrina adds that she and Idris intended their skincare products to have  “minimum impact on the planet” with “maximum” results.

We got to join this gorilla naming ceremony and it's my first time doing the gorilla trek. So we named the baby gorilla.”

Beautycon LA continues on Sunday, September 17 and the event is available for viewers to tune in virtually via and @Beautycon on Twitter.
