I’m on a mission to normalize spending A LOT of money with Black-owned businesses this holiday season and beyond. I’m forever committed to utilizing my platform to showcase the amazing diversity within the Black-owned business sphere.
We have skincare, fashion, tech, jewelry, home décor, candles, and more. Black people are not a monolith, and our businesses reflect the same. Support Black/POC/women/small businesses the same way you support Target and Walmart. Let’s build up our local communities by investing our time, support, and money into these companies.
When we come together to support Black businesses, we cannot fail.
My 2021 Black business favorites:
SAPO BODY SPONGE | @SapoBodySponge – Skincare
The African secret to soft, supple skin. Each Sapo has its own character in that no two of them are the same. The unique knotting technique gives the Sapo an unfinished look yet will not unravel. Considered perfectly imperfect, this nylon sponge that does not breed bacteria can be utilized for over a year. Make your skin the best first and last impression!
