With the Black Lives Matter movement going on, I am using my voice and platform to share and talk about it as much as I can. I know most people just talked about it for the first week and then said they were going back to their “regular” posting. Not me, I am going to keep fighting and talking about it until something is done. Yes I’ll still be posting my other posts because I want to spread it out, to keep it active. Today, I am going to talk about Black owned clean beauty brands.
You all know that I am a clean beauty advocate. And focusing on clean beauty, I have discovered so many amazing Black owned clean beauty brands that I want to share with you.
