Get to Know These 20 Black-Owned Beauty Companies


Inclusivity and general wokeness is far from perfect in the current beauty climate (like when some brands release a foundation in only five shades ranging from “porcelain” to “sunkissed”? #howboutno), but there’s solace in knowing it’s never been easier to support a black-owned beauty business.

Hair care tailor made for natural textures? Found. Sunscreen, without “Casper the Friendly Ghost” residue? Check. A foundation shade so perfectly matched you can’t believe your eyes? Oh, wow, do you have options. From big name brands, such as Fenty Beauty, to small batch lines, like Toronto’s own Essentials by Temi, every part of your beauty routine can embrace the entrepreneurial efforts of a WOC making her mark. Side effects include the feel-good euphoria of exercising your consumer power, because every “add to cart” click is an act that collectively changes the biz. Redefine power shopping and scroll through for the best brands to drop your ducats on now.
