Black Friday is a holiday centered around our love for over consumerism, in which we get sucked into the glamour of sales and gifts for the holidays. However, the idea of overconsumption on this particular holiday is inherently racist and predatory.

For Black beauty brands, the defense of Black life and the meaning behind “Black Friday” has gone mainstream. The industry has begun to play catch-up to cater to a more-inclusive audience and spread a positive message about holiday shopping. Now, Black beauty consumers are being offered more options than ever. We’re here to highlight Black-owned skincare brands created with people of color in mind. Keep reading on for where you can show support.
