Celebrate these Beauty Brands this Juneteenth
As we approach Juneteenth, we wanted to make sure you knew about several black-owned brands that have continued to make a huge impact in the beauty and entrepreneurial spaces. From Black Girl Sunscreen to Glow by Daye, these award-winning brands are dedicated to providing quality products made with people of color in mind.
In 2016, Black Girl Sunscreen was created by Shontay Lundy. Today the brand has sold over 1 Million tubes of sunscreen and is at the forefront of spreading the importance of wearing sunscreen amongst people of color. They’re sold in retail stores nationwide and on Amazon.com.
GLOW by DAYE This award-winning hair accessory brand has sold millions worth of products on the Amazon platform. Known for its high-quality silk bonnets and deep conditioning caps, the brand has grown tremendously adding beautiful printed charmeuse scarves, adjustable shower caps, and portable hooded dryers.
Rucker Roots offers healthy hair care products with no parabens, sulfates, petroleum, or artificial colors. Rucker Roots products were designed for all hair types and derived from vegetable roots such as Carrot Root, Ginger Root, and Turnip Root (GTC). Their award-winning mousse works great in wash-n-go routines and especially appeals to those with finer hair textures (3B to 4A Hair).
