In February, we started a brand new series on STYLE Canada: #BeautyFind Friday, otherwise known as your new #BFF. Every Friday, STYLE’s Digital Editor Anastasia Barbuzzi normally presents you with a single #BeautyFind to help you enjoy a weekend of self-love and care like no other. But this week, she’s telling you about some of the biggest movers, shakers and innovators on today’s clean beauty scene who are heading some pretty major (!) companies as Black women.
At STYLE Canada, we recognize the importance of supporting businesses owned and run by women of all ethnic backgrounds. With that, get ready to delight in your next Add to Cart item from this roundup of breakout clean beauty brands by Black women.
“Founder and CEO of Briogeo Nancy Twine is one of the youngest black women to launch a line of natural shampoos, conditioners and hair masks, among other products, at Sephora. All Briogeo products smell divine and offer special treatments for dry scalp, curly, frizzy and thin hair.”
“Sade Baron was founded by a mother-daughter duo, Sade and her daughter Rachel, with a goal of creating high-quality vegan body products that are good for the skin and the planet. From bar soap to body mist and refills for your body wash, they’ve got you covered with 100 per cent natural ingredients.”
“KNC Beauty is a collection of natural lip and eye products by Kristen Noel Crawley and the cruelty-free answer to your wish for something as hydrating, conditioning and effective as Lano. The Supa Scrub Set and the Natural Retinol-Infused Eye Mask couldn’t be any cuter.”
“After receiving some push back for being ‘so focused on the Black consumer‘, Base Butter co-founders She’Neil Johnson and Nicolette Graves decided to stand in their truth: providing Black consumers with an elevated and curated skincare experience. The Radiate Face Jelly is made specifically to hydrate brown skin with ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter and sweet almond oil.”
“Desiree Verdejo created Hyper Skin after experiencing months of crazy breakouts when pregnant with her first child. While searching the market for an affective product, Verdejo couldn’t find anything that catered to her and her skin’s problems. So, she came up with her own solution: Hyper Skin’s first product, Hyper Clear, is a vitamin C serum made up of natural ingredients like vitamin E, kojic acid, turmeric and bearberry that work together to brighten skin, smooth texture and drastically treat hyperpigmentation.”
Oui the People
“Oui the People is focused on bringing thoughtful beauty products into the world that do good by its customers and the environment surrounding them. From day one, Oui the People has gone #AgainstTheGrain, creating products on founder Karen Young and her company’s mission to The reConstitution of Beauty including razors for especially sensitive skin and Bikini Line Sheet Masks. I’ll definitely be using a few post-shave this summer.”
