80+ Black-Owned Brands Changing The Face of Green Beauty + Wellness

Black-Owned Clean Beauty + Wellness Brands (Updated 4/1/18)

Consciously Candace exists to uplift non-toxic, natural and organic beauty brands. We also seek to advocate for women underrepresented in the beauty and fashion industries. Black women. Disproportionately we are excluded, and disproportionately we are harmed by the indirect (and often direct) message society often sends: “You can’t sit with us!”

Certain brands say different. These beauty and wellness brands were founded by men and women of color, offering non-toxic, vegan, natural and/or cruelty-free options for all things health and beauty. When I first created this list in 2015, there were only 22 brands. I’m so happy to see the green beauty community growing by leaps and bounds! Browse the list below, and have a seat at their table. You’re invited!

  1. Good to see this list which I’ll be investigating. On the green beauty front I would love to see more inclusive-ness as it does still very much seem to be aimed at Gwyneth Paltrow! Other brands include Premae Skincare and for 5-free nail polish Dielle

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Ms. Paltrow definitely has great tips to share, but I would also love to see more inclusiveness. Thank you for letting me know about Premae and Dielle. I will check them out!
