10 Black Owned Skincare Products

20 Black Owned Skincare Brands You Must Try This Year

One of the best decisions I ever made was to actively support Black owned businesses last year. And even though that was my big 2020 commitment, buying Black is definitely something I will continue channeling my energy into this year and in the future. I love sharing my Black owned finds with you, like I’ve previously done with my Black owned home decor and baby brands lists, or my Black owned holiday gift guide. Now, you all know how serious I am about my skincare, and I always get so many skincare related questions in my monthly Q&As. So, I’m sharing 20 Black owned skincare brands that stand out to me, and for you to add to your cosmetics cabinet.

One of my go-to Black owned skincare brands with a great range of products. The founder cultivated the brand to reflect values of clean, ethical, inclusive beauty.

  1. Wow! I’m shook. The only black skincare line I knew was Bolden. I have to save these brands to try out some of their products. I see where you are going with buying black. It’s not been prejudice but being smart and supportive. Who would know our skin better than a creator who looks like me. Thank Ijeoma 😊!
