1. Homebody

Behold, the secret to making your evening bath even more relaxing. Sisters Rebecca Grammer-Ybarra and Christy Grammer founded Homebody, a company that sells handmade pearlescent bath soaks, in 2019. Grammer-Ybarra was inspired to create the line after she got into a car accident, and found that her nightly baths became an opportunity to heal her mind and body, she told Self. All of Homebody’s products are infused with 300 milligrams of CBD, which, combined with the warm water of a bath, can make it feel like all the tension in your body is melting down the drain. Each Homebody blend also contains nourishing essential oils, so you’ll emerge from the tub with hydrated skin.

2. Golde

Trinity Mouzon founded Golde in 2017 (when she was only 23 years old, BTW) with the goal of making wellness more accessible for all. That’s a mission that we can definitely get behind. The brand makes superfood powders that aid digestion, provide energy and promote healthy skin, like this Matcha Turmeric Blend, which you can add to water, milk or smoothies. Oh, and Golde also sells superfood-packed face masks.

Shop our picks: Shroom Shield ($22); Pure Matcha ($28); Cacao Turmeric Latte Blend ($29)

3. The Honey Pot Company

“The whole reason I started The Honey Pot Co. was because I was suffering from bacterial vaginosis for months and couldn’t get relief. One night, an ancestor visited me in a dream and gifted me with a vision to heal myself,” founder Bea Dixon explains on the brand’s website. She decided to create plant-based alternatives to the many chemical-laden feminine care products on the market. Whether you’re looking for tampons, a menstrual cup or yeast infection relief, The Honey Pot has you covered. Even better? The company gives back big time, by donating feminine care products to women in need.

Shop our picks: Organic Cotton Compact Tampons ($8); Organic Cotton Cover Super Herbal Pads ($9); Normal Feminine Wipes ($10)

4. Oui The People

When Karen Young started Oui The People back in 2015, her goal was to create personal care products that “help you feel great in the skin that you’re already in,” instead of sending the message that you need to change yourself in order to be lovable. The brand’s products make issues like ingrown hairs, razor burn and dry skin a thing of the past. A few products (we’re talking about the Featherweight Hydrating Body Gloss) are so popular, they’re currently sold out on the brand’s site. But don’t worry, you can still hop on the waiting list to get notify the second it drops.

5. Topicals

Having personally experienced chronic skin conditions during childhood, Olamide Olowe and Claudia Teng partnered up to create Topicals, a skincare line that’s compatible with a variety of skin tones and removes the shame around skin issues. If you suffer from eczema, the brand’s Like Butter Hydrating Mask is a total game-changer because it was formulated with soothing colloidal oatmeal and anti-inflammatory green tea extract to treat flaky, irritated skin. Topicals’s other buzzy product, Faded, uses azelaic acid and niacinamide to work wonders on dark spots and scars. Psst, the company has a philanthropic component too, donating one percent of its profits to mental health organizations like Therapy for Black Girls and The Jed Foundation.

In the market for a natural deodorant? Try Iyoba’s Probiotic Deodorant, which contains special natural enzymes that fight odor-causing bacteria.

8. Budzy

We can’t resist a good subscription box, so naturally Budzy caught our eye. BTW, it’s the only Black woman-owned CBD subscription on the market. Founder Shatoia Robinson first discovered the benefits of CBD while working as a medical device representative in an endocrinologist’s office, she told High Herstory. She started Budzy in an effort to de-stigmatize CBD use and promote its many benefits. It’s a monthly shipment of three to four popular CBD-infused products that span the beauty, wellness, science and culinary categories. From soothing muscle rubs to chocolates, each box offers something a little different.

Shop our picks: Monthly Subscription ($59); Budzy Mystery Box ($44)

9. Motiva Organics

Tonya Lewis Lee, a TV producer, author and advocate for women’s health, created Movita Organics so that women could have a completely organic option when it comes to vitamins.

FYI, all three formulas are made with 60 times higher bioactivity than traditional vitamins, making it easier for your body to both digest and absorb the nutrients.

Dr. Kristian Edwards, who has a background public health, wanted to encourage people to shop natural products from Black-owned brands.

It allows you to shop menstrual care products, oral care, tea and more, all in one place.

11. Ivy’s Tea Co.

Ivy’s Tea Co. was started by Shanae Jones, a first-generation herbalist hoping to make African holistic health remedies more mainstream. Her goal is to make the tea industry “as inclusive and reflective and accepting of all cultures as Hip-Hop,” she says. The brand offers loose leaf teas, honey and tea accessories to transform your morning routine. One of its most popular selections is Not Coffee, an herbal coffee substitute that looks and tastes like the real thing, but doesn’t contain any addictive caffeine.

In 2020, the company was recognized as part of American Express and IFundWomen of Color’s 100 for 100 program and received a $25,000 grant to support its growth.

13. Salt.xo

When she was in college, founder Jhalesa Lewis had big dreams of starting her own business someday.

Since 2018, the wellness brand has offered a mix of skincare and feminine products that use all-natural ingredients (i.e. tea tree, aloe vera and shea butter, to name a few). The most popular product in the line is the Yoni Shower Gel, which has rave reviews for combating common issues like bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections and dryness without any harsh ingredients or potentially irritating fragrances.

Let’s be honest, you probably haven’t given much thought to your toilet paper lately (or ever). Reel Paper is ready to change that. The brand supplies earth-friendly, sustainable paper products like T.P. and paper towels that are made from 100 percent tree-free fibers. Rest assured, everything in the line is super soft, strong and biodegradable. Plus, with every purchase, the brand provides a percentage of proceeds to SOIL—a non-profit organization that gives toilets to poor communities and turns waste into useful resources in Haiti.

Shop our picks: Reel Tree-Free Toilet Paper ($15)

15. Bevel

Founder Tristan Walker started Bevel to prioritize the needs of Black men. The grooming brand offers hair, skin, body and shaving products so users can stay clean and fresh from head-to-toe. Aside from providing a self-care collection, Bevel strives to end the cycle of mass incarceration and the lack of resources for these individuals after they’re released. So, a portion of all sales go toward supporting anti-recidivism legislation, education and job training for these formerly incarcerated men.

16. Ruby Love

Whether you’re seeking more energy in your day or better sleep at night, you’ll find a host of powders, pills and kits to help you on your journey.

18. Peak and Valley

Founder Nadine Joseph’s goal in creating her own line of vitamins and supplements was to treat her chronic stress, fatigue and skin issues. After spending years of studying the science behind stress, she found ingredients like adaptogens (i.e. reishi mushroom and ashwagandha) could play a big role in reducing her daily issues. By 2019, Joseph wanted to share her curated blends with the world and introduced Peak and Valley. The company offers four blends that mix well with other drinks to help manage stress.

Plus, when you get a shoutout from Beyoncé, you know it’s special.

Shop our picks: The Original ($25); Happy Hour ($25); Culture ($25)

20. Lion X Wellness

Inspired by his grandfather Bob Marley’s impact on the world, Nico Marley started Lion X Wellness. The name (and brand) is all about “unleashing your inner lion” by empowering yourself.

21. B Condoms

Founder Jason Panda started B Condoms after a conversation with his mother that highlighted the lack of resources and education surrounding sexual health within Black communities.

22. Buena Botanicals

In 2019, twin sisters Coral and Rah Hines launched Buena Botanicals after finding a natural way to reduce their mother’s chronic pain: CBD.

The plant-based brand also focuses on breaking the stigma surrounding cannabis in the wellness space.

For Them is redefining wellness for the queer community. As a queer, non-binary POC, founder Chloe Freeman noticed there were no products and services that spoke to their own experiences.

The chest compression top was designed to make anyone who needs support feel more comfortable in their bodies.
