In the midst of a global pandemic, we’ve lost sight of another true human virus: systematic racism. Now citizens around the world are putting the spotlight back on that injustice. We can donate, we can share, we can repost, we can vote. But something we can all continuously do, every day, is uplift and empower with our dollars.
Take a break whenever possible from buying from corporate giants out of convenience, and consider who your purchase is funding. We did a small bit of the work for you and rounded up some amazing Black-owned companies you can support right now and in the future. Put your money where your mouth (and reposts) are.
Situationist Green Halter Top
The brand T.A. stands for Telsha Anderson, a brilliant curator of wearable art in the form of super sleek, modern luxury brands. If you’re looking to splurge on something feel-good, like this sexy strappy dress or this unique halter top, her carefully selected shop is where to find it.
Depuffing and Firming Eye Cream
A brand founded on a premise of ethically and sustainably sourced clean ingredients and clinically proven results, this whole line is worthy of serious consideration. However, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we stan this incredible eye cream.
Mineral Tinted Face Sunscreen
Unsun Cosmetics has created the solution to a problem that has gone on in beauty for way too long—a line of sun care for deeper skin tones, and the shades in between. No residue, no white cast, just award-winning, legitimately clean sun protection and the serious glow that ensues.
Cacao Turmeric Latte Blend
Golde‘s bright and gorgeous little packages have been tantalizing us on shelves (literally and of course, virtually, as of lately) of our favorite health and wellness shops recently, and we couldn’t get behind that more. Not just a pretty package, however, Golde’s face masks are basically edible, they are so clean, and their latte pre-mixes for turmeric and matcha make life so much easier and delicious, with quality and sourcing that you can feel. The Cacao Turmeric mix feels more like an indulgence than a major favor for your body.
Crunchy Carrot Cake Cookies
At Poosh, we don’t accept that one has to give up everything genuinely delicious just to be healthy, and it’s clear that Partake Foods agrees with us. The company is founded by a sweet family whose baby girl had several allergies. They made it their mission to create yummy treats that are totally safe, trustworthy, and dare we say healthy. Because a cookie is absolutely wellness. Try the Carrot Cake. You know you want to.
