In celebration of Black History Month, here are some news, highlights and facts: In some ways, there has been progress made in leaps and bounds, but in other areas, there is room for improvement. What remains constant is that women of all shades should be treated beautifully.
Beauty should be celebrated in all shades, but historically that has not always been the case in the personal-care products industry. Women of color have had to face Discrimination at the Makeup Counter from commercial makeup brands for years, despite the fact that we spend a ton of money. According to WWD, Black women spend an estimated $7.5 billion annually on beauty products. This equates to 80 percent more on cosmetics and twice as much on skin care than other groups, yet we are still underserved by the cosmetics industry.
