5 Black-Owned Beauty Brands You Can Support Right Now

"Today, I am going to share my top 5 #SBAPPROVED black-owned beauty brands."

Hello! Welcome back to SB! I took a week off from writing an articles because not only have I been out there protesting every single day- I haven’t had the strength or capacity to sit and type. It has been such a horrific week (to put it lightly) but in the spirit of turning this negative and catastrophic event into something positive. Today, I am going to share my top 5 #SBAPPROVED black-owned beauty brands. I am hoping one step at a time we can secure future generational wealth for the black community by allotting our money to black businesses. 

"The Honey Pot is a plant-based feminine care brand that's gained a huge fan base for its chemical-free, environmentally-friendly washes, as well as wipes, tampons, and pads."



1. The Honey Pot

Founded by Bea Dixon in 2012. The Honey Pot is a plant-based feminine care brand that's gained a huge fan base for its chemical-free, environmentally-friendly washes, as well as wipes, tampons, and pads. All-natural products with great price points. I fell in love with their sensitive wash recommended by my OBGYN. The Colloidal silver ingredient in it is often touted as an antibacterial agent mix with lavender and apple cider vinegar is great for refreshing our vaginas. Simply pump 3 times into your hand and use it down below twice a day. 

"Their Hyper Clear is a hardworking face serum packed with 15 percent vitamin c and vitamin e that work together to brighten skin, smooth fine lines, and rough texture."

2. Hyper Skin

I was immediately drawn to this brand because I suffer from hyperpigmentation myself. Their hyper serum is the only product I trust for my dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Their Hyper Clear is a hardworking face serum packed with 15 percent vitamin c and vitamin e that work together to brighten skin, smooth fine lines, and rough texture. This product is so great, it’s back-ordered everywhere. Get yourself on the waiting list. The owner once said this in an interview; “This product was created for brown women, women of color, women with melanin, women who experience these skincare concerns that are central to their beauty regimen, but the beauty market treats as a niche.” 

"Inua pays two times the rate of the shea butter they source to the specific area they are buying it from, making sure they are fairly paid."

3. Inua Naturals

This is by far the most transparent brand on IG right now. Considering they source their shea butter from Africa, this brand feels personal. Inua pays two times the rate of the shea butter they source to the specific area they are buying it from, making sure they are fairly paid. This is incredibly important because shea butter has a reputation of not being sustainably sourced. Their Vitamin C moisturizer has aloe vera (everyone knows how I feel about aloe) in it. *chef kisses*! 

"They are a Brooklyn based brand that is centered around making food easy, approachable, and fun."

4. Golde

The aesthetics of this brand is everything. They are a Brooklyn based brand that is centered around making food easy, approachable, and fun. I discovered them through their very now-famous Turmeric Tonic Blend product. I have never been the super healthy type as I’ve always thought healthy food just doesn’t taste good. However, this Turmeric blend with coconut and ginger proved to me otherwise. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory which means it’s great for your immune system, skin, and digestive system. I simply pour two teaspoons into my morning coffee and I’ve got all I need to be healthy for the day. So Yummy! 

"If you bring back 2 used bottles from them, they’ll give you a coupon towards your next purchase."

5. Nola Skinsentials

This brand is a vegan skincare brand that is also cruelty-free. I especially gravitated towards this brand when I found out from an Ulta employee about their recycling program. If you bring back 2 used bottles from them, they’ll give you a coupon towards your next purchase. If you send in 5 bottles, they’ll send you an actual free product. This is a win-win and what a way to contribute to the environment positively. I also love the transparency of the ingredients in their products. More importantly, they have an incredible “try-me” system. This brand is the best on this list for anyone with Acne-prone skin.
