5 Black-Owned Beauty Brands Focused On Health And Wellness

Owned Beauty Brands Focused On Health

Historically, Black women have been exposed to more toxic chemicals than every other cultural group. In keeping with the Environmental Work Group (EWG), 75% of mainstream products marketed to Black women are considered to be noxious. In a recent EWG study and evaluation of ingredients in 1,177 beauty and private care products marketed to Black women, about one in 12 was ranked highly hazardous on the EWG’s Skin Deep® Cosmetics Database scoring system. Common hazards linked to ingredients which are unhealthy include cancer, hormone disruption, developmental and reproductive damage, and allergies.

The excellent news is, Black women are aware of those jarring statistics and are actively combatting this issue by creating clean beauty and wellness products that profit your health. Like Kristian Henderson, DrPH, public health professor and founding father of BLK+GRN. She founded the e-commerce store to focus on and support Black women who create healthy, all-natural products for his or her community. 

With more knowledge and options at our fingertips, on daily basis, Black women have gotten more mindful and intentional about what they devour, digest, and buy – including their beauty and wellness products. 

We’ve rounded up five Black-owned, holistically healthy wellness and sweetness brands so as to add to your shopping cart.
