Black-Owned Beauty Brands You Should Know About

Black Owned Beauty Brands You Should Know About

There’s been a lot going on in the world right now, and there are numerous ways you can take action to support the Black Lives Matter movement. You can donate to a cause like Black Lives Matter, sign petitions, educate your children on the subject, or you can support black-owned businesses.

Today I’m sharing 5 black-owned beauty brands that you can shop from to show your support.

5 Black-Owned Beauty Brands:

Hyper Skin

Hyper Skin focuses on one major skin problem that we all have to deal with – hyperpigmentation. Something that I personally have struggled with for years. One way you know Hyper Skin is worth a try, is they focus on developing only one product – Brightening Vitamin C Serum and the reviews are fantastic. Also, Hyper Skin offers free shipping on all orders.

UOMA Beauty

UOMA Beauty (pronounced uh-mah), which means beautiful in Nigerian, is found by Sharon Chuter. The brand offers cruelty-free products, and its products are available in Ulta.

If you haven’t heard or tried any of their products, where have you been? Personally, I love the Don’t Despair, Repair! Collection, which is for dry and damaged hair. It makes my hair super soft and shiny.

Foxie Cosmetics

Musician Kayla Phillips founded Foxie Cosmetics in 2015, and now it offers a variety of handcrafted hand, body, and hair care products. Everything is vegan and cruelty-free, and their sustainable packaging is simply beautiful.

Mented Cosmetics

Mented Cosmetics is another black-owned beauty brand that I wanted to include in this list. The founders KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson (both Harvard graduates) launched the brand in 2017 with nude lipsticks that match deeper and diverse skin tones. Today, Mented Cosmetics offers an extensive range of eyes, lips, brows, cheeks, and nail products that are vegan, paraben-free, and non-toxic.
