Stacey and Martin Clarke have long used their sales and business development skills to help clients create successful companies across South Florida. Now the husband and wife team have used their expertise to work for themselves as the new owners and operators of Asili Beauty and Wellness store located in Hollywood, Fla., where they offer cutting-edge, sustainable, carbon-neutral beauty and wellness products from around the world.
“You can’t have real beauty without wellness,” Martin said in defining the philosophy behind Asili (pronounced Ah-sill-lee), which means “natural” in Swahili.
“What makes us unique is that we have combined beauty and wellness in the same space with equal focus” Stacey said.
“Nowhere else can you find beauty and wellness products presented as cause and effect.”
It’s a natural pairing, Stacey said, one reflected in the products sold in their 5000 square foot flagship store located at 2014 Harrison Street, in Hollywood, Fla., just north of Miami.
“We carry products that are good for you,” Stacey said.
“We incorporate a wellness aspect in everything we do. In our buying strategy, we source products that are clean, made with social responsibility, and have a limited carbon footprint.”
“Ninety percent of the products we offer are one hundred percent vegan.”
Asili carries the Clarke’s own luxury lines, including 15 fragrances of herb and oil based natural soaps, an all-natural skin care line featuring cleansers, daily cream moisturizers, and wrinkle recovery serums fortified with vitamin A and vitamin B.
In July 2022, Asili will debut a luxury raw human hair line including cranial prostheses and custom, glue-less hair units (wigs) that can be cut and styled to the customers preference.
Asili products are sourced from the U.S. and countries around the world.
“You can find products here that you can’t find anywhere else,” Martin said.
