While more and more beauty and personal care products are being manufactured with Black women in mind, shopping for them in stores can be the equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack. But, not to worry! Ivy League-trained attorney Kimberly Smith has launched Marjani Beauty to bring the best products from around the world directly to you.
Smith's passion for beauty inspired her to create not just an online store, but a community with a great shopping experience. "I started this company to create a space where women of color can find products, from a curated selection of brands, that address our needs without us having to compromise in quality, price or our appearance," Smith says on her website.
Marjani Beauty features cosmetics, accessories, skincare, haircare products, bodycare, and Marjani Girlz products for tweens and teens. And because Black women come in a wide spectrum of shades, there is a Buy It and Try It™ foundation match program that boasts a 14-day refund policy if the color isn't a seamless match to your complexion.
With a goal to become the leading curator of global cosmetics and beauty products for women of color, look for Marjani Beauty to grow by leaps and bounds. According to their website, they "want to empower women of color to accept and embrace their diversity, redefine traditional standards of beauty, and connect women of color across the world creating a global network." Looks like the company is off to a great start!
