35 Black Owned Cosmetics And Skincare Companies That Need Your Support
One of my biggest goals for 2017 is the successful launch of my own lipstick line. I’ve tested a few formulas, but I haven’t been happy with them. It takes time to get it right, and as I am committed to doing right by my fellow women of color, I’m willing to take the time to ensure what I put out into the world is exactly what we need. That being said, there are many black owned cosmetics companies we can and should be supporting.
Given the current state of affairs, many people are asking ,”what can we do?,” and the answer is and will continue to be: money. Therefore, it is my pleasure to bring to you this growing list of black-owned cosmetics companies we can all begin supporting today:

I just wanted to thank you personally, for adding my brand to the list. I am Samantha the owner of IVIVIIV Cosmetics and I truly thank you. ❤️ Much love and respect to you
Were also eagerly hoping to get your products to SA shores;)
I’ve shopped with Pooka and Sereniti and both lines carry quality products. The Body Butter from Pooka is amazing and good for anyone with dry skin. I love the soaps from Sereniti, not drying on the skin at all.
Thanks. Hayah Cosmetics, Birmingham, AL is Black -owned also
All Shea Naturals. Bessemer,AL
Email me for contact i fo on both.
You forgot Black Up
No I didn’t. They aren’t black owned. i wrote an article about it, you can google to see it. It’s messy. Also, this is a curated list, so some brands were intentionally left off. I will be adding some new ones soon, though. Stay tuned

Knowing black owned cosmectic owners means a great deal to me living in NC. There are barely any black cosmectic lines in Malls or Pharmacies for women of color especially dark women. No commercials on black cosmectics unless an black awards show was on or Soul Train. You are our best kept secrets that need to come into the light. Think about forming an alliance to advertise and promote your products together. There are no little I’s or big U’s we need to see all of you. Then plan and assemble one of the most informative, illuminating, enlightening cosmectic shows we ever seen for black women and teens in years. WE WILL COME! Make it affordable and reasonable, use the women and teens from the audience to promote your product and intrigue our minds to wow. Pray together in love and unity ask Jesus to plan the way and listen to what he has to say. Your blessings overflow
I’m sure I speak on behalf of South African sisters… Pls bring to our shores.. We’d love to support your brands;)
Hey! Sacha Cosmetics is owned by East Indian people from Trinidad and Tobago. They aren’t Black Owned. I’m Trinidadian so I’m sure about that. Sidenote: I am really enjoying your blog. Your calamine lotion tip for skin changed my life.

I am looking for a domestic line like Bare minerals except one that’s owned by a black owner!! I’m in upstate NY and I want something FABULOUS! !! Any ideas??
Hello I am a minimalist when it comes to make up. I’m not as educated as most but I do love a smooth face and a pop of color for the lip. I am a woman of color who uses Mac because that is what I was introduced to a long time ago. Can any of the black owned businesses above tell me of a foundation in your line that I could use that would match the Nw45 studio fix that I currently use? I would love to support!
These are some great companies. We would love to feature any of their products in our swag bags for our upcoming award show for independent filmmakers. It’s called the Philadelphia Independent Film Awards. This will be our second year and we’re always looking to build new relationships. With it being a show for actors we have a lot of female attendees as well as make up artists. People are always looking to discover new products and our bag may be a good fit. I supplied our website below and if you have any questions please feel free to send me an email. Thanks!
Hi Floyd. This is simply a list of companies I googled. I don’t work for these companies and I’m not affiliated with them. You would need to contact these companies directly to partner with them.
Hi Lisa, thank you so much for supporting us and all the Black Owned Cosmetic companies. I am just now seeing this.omg… My name is Donte owner of Maurte Cosmetics. It’s so many great companies on here and we thank you for recognizing us.
Much Love and respect
