6 Black-Owned Clean Beauty Brands We Love
1. Lauren Napier Beauty
2. People of Color Beauty
3. 54 Thrones
54 Thrones uses all natural ingredients from Africa. Founder Christina Tegbe uses her brand to spread awareness about the African origin of clean beauty. 54 Thrones makes Beauty Butters with scents like Ugandan Vanilla and Ethiopian Honey, a Lava Cleansing Mask, and an African Beauty Water that all are formulated for a “decadent sensory experience.”
4. Range Beauty
Range Beauty makes clean beauty for “the forgotten shade.” Alicia Scott worked in New York fashion and saw firsthand the lack of shades in the make up available, and struggled herself finding clean products that wouldn’t inflame her eczema and acne. Range’s foundations - which are hydrating and free of harmful chemicals - come in shades from fair to deeper brown, ensuring everyone finds something where they can shine in their own skin.
5. Black Girl Sunscreen
Black Girl Sunscreen makes natural sunscreen that doesn’t leave a white residue. The paraben and chemical-free sunscreen was made to cater exclusively to Black Women, and moisturizes the skin while shielding it from the sun’s harmful rays. All without that nasty white residue.
6. Sienna Naturals
Issa Rae teamed up with Hannah Diop on Sienna Naturals, a hair-care line serving curly, coily, and Afro-textured hair. The brand doesn’t use any harsh or hair-stripping chemicals so that you never have to choose between good hair and ingredients that are good for you and the planet. The brand’s “Salon In A Box” kit includes Shampoo, a Plant Power hair mask, Dew Magic leave-in conditioner, and Lock & Seal for the ultimate hair protection.
