1: The Honey Pot Company - The Female Black Owned Brand Revolutionizing Periods

An image of some of honey pot's product offerings

This unique brand offers ladies a plant-derived alternative to traditional feminine products (yup, we're talking pads and tampons, ladies). Inspired by the use of cotton and lavender in their own lives, the Honey Pot Company Black founder Bea Dixon wanted to create a better option. Dixon became obsessed with plant-based alternatives to feminine products and decided to make them herself!

And wow did she succeed! These aloe-infused beauties are like cooling pillows of bliss as opposed to traditional period pads. And, unlike those other pads, these babies are 100% biodegradable. Say goodbye to those mountain-of-amassed-used-pads languishing in a landfill for 300 years. These pads are crafted from 100% cotton. When you're done with them, just chuck 'em wherever (there's no need to worry about irresponsible bin disposal!)

The Honey Pot Company also offers a range of other plant-based products like wipes, panty sprays, and bath bombs, all with the same aim at protecting women and the planet. Yes, Please! 🙋🏽‍♀️

Why We Love the Honey Pot Company

This Black woman-owned brand checks all of our boxes:

  • Small Business hustle
  • Sustainable products
  • Natural Ingredients
  • Promotes women and the destigmatization of periods

Last but not least, The Honey Pot Co. encourages customers to get in touch and share their stories and experiences. Because periods shouldn't be a point of shame. Amiright?

4: Black Girl Nerds - Where you can support a Black owned business and feed your nerdiness simultaneously

Black Girl Nerds is another popular brand that goes against the grain. Their site offers nerd-related content with a focus on Black women in pop culture. Oh, and did we mention this spunky brand has it's own blog and podcast too? Pretty cool in our book!

5: Miss Jessie's - Empowering girls and women of color to embrace their natural hair texture

Miko and Titi Branch, Black sisters and creators of Miss Jessie's products wanted to empower young black girls with the message that their hair matters. That's why the brand specializes in products for curly, kinky, or wavy hair. It aims to help women of color embrace their natural beauty while finding the perfect product, designed with their hair in mind!

The founders of Miss Jessie's Miko and Titi Branch

This woman-owned small business also launched the #MyHairStory campaign. This unique campaign helps young girls to embrace their natural hair texture rather than seeking to change it.
