In the light of the recent events happening around the world, I decided I will share with you a few brands owned by black women, that I find inspiring:
- Briogeo- founded by Nancy Twine
Natural hair care
The story behind: Nancy’s grandmother was the beauty guru of the village she lived in. Nancy learned about beauty since she was five, and when she moved to the city and changed to store bought hair products she decided they were not living up to their name. So she started Briogeo Hair Care in her tiny East Village apartment and using her grandma’s recipies.
“We should treat our hair the same way we treat our skin; by nurturing it with ingredients that detoxify, hydrate, and protect” – Nancy Twine
- Castamira- founded by Chantel Davis
The story behind: Chantel is a Jamaican born model that knows exactly what kind of fabric, fit or style fits the body of a woman. The swimsuits have a 70’s and 90’s aesthetic to them and are made to elongate the legs and embracing the curves of the body.
“Driven by a woman who embraces the quaintrelle spirit of luxury and play, adventure and cherished moments of solitude”
- Klur- founded by Lesley Thornton
Skincare line for diverse skin conditions and ethnicities
The story behind: Lesley is a certified esthetician and formulator that has tried to create personalized skin care products for the health of the skin. It is also a sustainable brand.
“Since the inception of KLUR, my vision has been to cultivate a brand that reflected the values of clean, ethical, and inclusive beauty”
- Honey Pot Co – founded by Bea Dixon
Natural feminine products
The story behind: Bea had bacterial vaginosis for a few months and couldn’t get any type of relief and she says an ancestor came into her dreams and helped her cure herself using herbs. So she decided to share it with the world.
“If you’re here because your honeypot is unhappy, I’ve been there”
Please check all of them out and support them as much as possible.
