30 Black Owned Skincare Brands To Indulge In

Skin-saving products created POC (People of Color) beauty brands. Part 1 of the POC Beauty series.

I've always loved to support POC brands even before the Black Lives Matter movement begun. Rather it is makeup, hair care, beauty tools, it is that POC brands know how to thoroughly hydrate and moisturize. Trust me, I've given a lot of companies a try but it's the Black-owned skincare brands that are really helping smooth, heal and treat issues and soften everyone's skin perfectly. Because there are so many to choose from I created an ever-growing list that helps put money back into our Black communities, and also helps these brands get the recognition they deserve for the passion they delivered to all of us.

Please note that in reference to the most recent events, there are a lot of companies that target Black consumers but are not Black-owned or even POC brands which is why I continue to increase this list daily. These brands are also being called out by Sharon Chuter, the Nigerian owner and founder of UOMA Beauty in a campaign called #PullUporShutUp. This campaign is calling out companies that are not Black/POC-owned but target and take from Black creators. In this campaign, Sharon is insisting that these companies publically share how many Blacks are employed by their companies that hold upper-level executive and/or corporate roles as well as how many POC are on their staff. To me, this is something that I definitely want to see considering a lot of these brands participated in Black Out Tuesday to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, but yet have ever made a change in their hiring or collaborating with Blacks or POC.

Now more than ever Black-owned beauty brands are on the rise and a lot of them are independently owned so get your debit cards ready for swiping, follow them on social media tell them I sent you. Here are the 30 brands you need in your life.


Clear Water Cosmetics 1

One of their products that really captured my eyes was the "Goodnight Moon". It is a whipped body butter that has pixie dust, unicorn fruit, avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil, lavender essential oil, almond oil, and shea butter.

This brand has one of the most beautiful packaging that I have seen but is the toner that will draw you in.

This means your moisturizer, primer, and makeup will go on flawlessly.

Choosing them is so difficult but definitely pick 1 for you and another one for a friend.

This brand needs no introduction however some Black women and men or people of color did not know that this brand exists and sold inside of Target. I belong to many skincare and makeup groups on Facebook and whenever Black women ask what is a good sunscreen that leaves no white cast, I recommend this one. The consistency is thick therefore a little goes a long way for a nice amount of time. Protect your skin melanin beauties, because yes, we too can get sunburned. Look at my article on how I got sunburned and how I had to treat it HERE.

Nigerian-American brand is bringing the roots of her heritage to skincare lovers that are seeking to heal naturally. On the website, the owner shares the story of how her mother would travel to get the nuts from Shea trees to crack them open and extract the shea butter to use it on eczema, burns, and later on for increased hair growth and shine. Now the brand's one and only "Oye Shea Butter" is a go-to for healing blemishes, cuts, stretch skin, rashes, and dry skins along with many other benefits. Priced at $10, this all in one solution is worth it.

This brand wants to help oily and combination skin types a thing of the past. Offering immediate protection through simple formulations, the owner promises long-term results when using their moisturizer and sustainable pre-cleansing clothes. Even the simplicity of this makes me want to buy their#1 seller "Aloe Vera Face Moisturizer" but I definitely will subscribe to their mailing list so I'll be alerted if a cleanser has been launched.

In small batches, your face will get a taste of heaven to clear hyper-pigmentation, acne, or even just balancing the oil on your face.

Helping you "love your skin" this brand is bringing you luxury products that reflect how we feel and want to feel. With products named "I'm Beet and Glow" this Rose-C Glow Duo consists of vitamin C, and rosehips to hydrate, brighten and even skin tone hence the term "glow". More ingredients that will convince you to love are rose extract, aloe vera, and honeyquat. This brand is truly getting into my bougie mindset.

Black-owned, Swedish. luxury skincare brand was introduced to my life over a year ago and since then  I have craved more of their products. With chemically enhanced products such as glycolic, all of the products will help to speed up the skin rejuvenation process. If you have aging or dry and sensitive skin then you should try the "Supple Glow Moisture Creme" that is rich in vitamins A and C, grape skin extract, rose flower, sunflower seed oil, and more, it's no wonder why this brand is definitely on the high-end side.

If you are a fan of naturally crafted artesian soap then you will love the selection that they offer. With low prices and a variety of soaps such as "Activated Charcoal, Citrus Hemp, Oatmeal Honey" and more, you will definitely be clicking to purchase the bundle. I almost forgot to mention that the brand also sells natural deodorant which is a score. Most over the counter deodorants have ingredients that contribute to skin cancer. 


Whichever brand you choose from the list, make sure you share it with your friends and family. Buying Black has never been so important than what it is now with the Black Lives Movement happening on a global scale now. Also, check some of these websites who are giving a portion of their proceeds to help undeserved POC communities as well as programs set forth to bail out protesters and give money back to Black-Owned Businesses that have been destroyed during the protests.
