Updated: Aug 11, 2022

Did you realized that having 20 shades foundation and 5 different colors of setting powder are more common in the beauty industry now? Not only cosmetics, as building a supportive, inclusive beauty community has become a major topic, more skincare brands are also expanding their product lines and formulas to include all skin colors.

So today, we want to shout out to some of our favorite black-owned skincare brands that hope to make women of color feel empowered to celebrate their natural skin tone and amplify their voice in the beauty industry.

In 2015, Ndidi Obidoa and Chinelo Chidozie founded Bolden, a skincare brand created for Black women, by Black women. Ndidi Obidoa and Chinelo Chidozie understands major skin problems faced by people of color and look to design products that catered to those skincare issues. They designed several skincare products that look to treat hyperpigmentation and give the skin a natural glow. One popular product is their Brightening Moisturizer, a combination moisturizer and sunscreen. Specially formulated for darker skin tones, Bolden’s Brightening Moisturizer is formulated without the ingredients of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that leaves white residue on the skin. Under the name Bolden, Ndidi Obidoa and Chinelo Chidozie aim to embolden women and inspire women to love their natural beauty.
