As beauty consumers, there’s power in how and where we spend our money. Supporting indigenous beauty brands is one way to not only support BIPOC members of our beauty community, but find yourself some pretty incredible product formulations as well.
Indigenous beauty brands champion native botanicals and call on the practice of traditional bush medicine to nourish and treat the skin. Think restorative balms and ointments, concentrated elixirs and healing natural ingredients that not only feel beautiful, but perform as well.
