Black-owned brands that cater to our needs like no one else
It’s a movement! #buyblack #shopblack #blackbusinesses. No, it’s not just an Instagram trend but a movement that we should actively sustain.
Do you remember using beauty products that never seemed to go well with your skin, especially when you were younger? You remember, right? If not for black-owned brands, we would still have to use beauty products that were never made, with us in mind. Grateful for this era. Grateful, for these black-owned brands who are showing up every day for the culture!
And, we are speaking of black-owned brands that create our sensuous lingerie, hair products for our tresses, swimwears, powerful lippies, feminine purses, you name them. Below are just a few of our favourites.
