Winter’s icy grip can wreak havoc on our skin, our hair and our well-being. Think of those harsh winds, plummeting temperatures and dry indoor air depleting our much-needed moisture, leaving us feeling ashy, flaky and downright dull.

But fear not, Divas! We’ve got a well-equipped arsenal of Black-owned, women-founded beauty products that can enhance your face, hair and body all year long!

For The Hair: Malkia Essentials


Founded by Theresa Withers, a licensed cosmetologist, this Black-owned woman’s business is heralded for crafting vegan and natural skincare and haircare products for the Black community. The brand specializes in improving, maintaining and growing healthy textured hair and dreadlocks. The brand recently expanded to 17 products, including a men’s beard line and skincare products for those with dry skin, eczema and hyperpigmentation. With Malkia Essentialsl‘ clean, safe and sustainable products, you can enjoy transformative results that brighten your skin’s natural radiance and vitality while embracing a natural lifestyle you can trust.

For The Lips: NaChé Cosmetics

There’s something about a red lip; it can warm up a room. Former educator NaChé Thompson has created the perfect shade of red for dark-skinned makeup wearers of all races. NaChé Cosmetics‘ highly pigmented “Ruby” is a liquid matte lipstick in the perfect shade of red. It goes on smoothly to perfectly complement brown gal undertones, and it lasts all day. We also love the “Gail,” a perfect shade of brown.

For The Skin: Uzari 


Uzari Skincare utilizes ancient ingredients like African Black Soap, sourced right from Ghana and other effective plant-based ingredients that work to nourish and restore skin barrier for all skin types! This amazing brand is 1oo percent female and Back-owned, founded by Yasmin Zachary, who created this line based on the deep-rooted Nigerian and Ghanaian skincare traditions she grew up with. The “Ritual Box” ($60) contains a 10oz restorative body cleanser made with African Black soap and gentle but effective plant-based ingredients like shea butter. The set also includes an antibacterial mesh sponge designed to exfoliate, unclog pores and enhance product absorption. All packaging is 100 percent plant-based and non-toxic products that are sustainable, refillable and recyclable. And here’s a real treat: Uzari donates 1 percent of all sales to fund the education of young women in Ghana, where their African Black Soap is sourced.
