Amazing Black Female Founders You Need to Know

There is something to celebrate every day of the year if you are savvy enough to look for it. This month we celebrate Women's History month and some insanely dope female founders. If you have made it to our site then hopefully you are aware of our courageously amazing founder Keisha, If not check out her story here Get to Know Keisha.  Just like our favorite coffee shops, these ladies have no ranking order possible so you will find them in good old fashioned alphabetical order, lol. They are truly amazing in their industries and unmatched in their crafts.  Each of these women brings something innovative to her product or service that sets them above and apart from anyone or anything similar.

    1. Angela Wells - Serein Natural 

      We can not say enough about this skin care line! Before Serein Naturals we couldn't find products good enough to even consider a routine, as most of them created the problem they were designed to help with. Serein {Se-rāin}was founded in 2016 by Angela Wells, with the help of her sister and cousins. In need of a healthy scalp treatment to repair damage and nurture hair growth, she set out to make her own formula from chemical-free and vegan ingredients. Her background as an organic oil consultant for dōTERRA gave her extensive knowledge of essential oils, and she incorporated that expertise when she created Hair Gold. With that, the idea for Serein Naturals was born. We now offer a diverse array of face, body, and hair products that you’ll feel great about using every day.

    2. Cheriece Peterson - Natural Urbanity

      If we could sum up our experience with Natural Urbanity in just a few words it would be The Softest Skin Ever. Cheriece is a wife and mother of 5 blessings, known affectionately as Reese. Reese was driven to start her own business while transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. "I found that many products either didn't work, too expensive or had ingredients that were down right scary. I started on this path of doing research and finding out that products didn't have to be synthetic, overly complex, and that I could make them myself." I wanted others to have that same benefit and availability as well. Thus, Natural Urbanity was inspired and birthed from her love and passion of all things natural. Reese prays that customers enjoy all the fun scents and benefits of Natural Urbanity products as much as she enjoy creating them!  Additionally, each product order on her website has the option to be customized. You can specifiy the scent or include a message on the label. You can find Natural Urbanity body butters in our Limited Edition Gift Box

    3. Felicia  Jackson - CPR Wrap 

      Despite her CPR certification and career as a medical professional, Felicia Jackson froze when her 2-year-old son experienced a choking incident in the backseat of her car.  When Felicia froze from fear, her husband acted quickly and saved the toddler, but Jackson was left shaken. Following the incident she became determined to prevent the same thing from happening to others. If a trained professional can forget CPR under extreme stress, Jackson knew it was probably happening to people everywhere. As an answer to this very present danger, she invented CPR Wrap. It is a disposable CPR template that lays across the victim's chest and provides step-by-step instructions to any lay responder. In addition to the instructions, CPR Wrap has an attached one-way valve mouth barrier and visual hand placements for proper compression.   Felicia's story is so relatable as any of us could be overcome by fear, especially when it comes to saving the life of a loved one.  Time is critical when it comes to life saving actions like CPR and for that reason you can find an infant sized CPRwrap in each of our Lactation Gift Baskets.

    4. Manushkka Sanvil - Chubby Curls

      Chubby Curls is the brain child of Manushkka, the widely celebrated 'Moisturizer-In-Chief' of Chubby Curls. Chubby Curls Hair Products is a line of high quality, all-natural products formulated to maximize moisture and eliminate the many challenges dryness causes for textured and curly hair. By sharing best practices and teaching naturals how to understand their individual hair needs, Chubby Curls' mission is to educate and empower the black community so we can undo false narratives and embrace the beauty and versatility of our hair! What can we say about Chubby Curls other than our 4c hair loves all that chemical free moisture.

    5. Pamela Richardson -  Miss Peabody's Southern Tea Cakes

      Miss Peabody’s Southern Tea Cakes was started as an act of self-love. The company’s Founder/Owner, Pamela Richard, had just been let go from her job. Unsure what her next move would be inspiration struck while watching an episode of The Great British Baking Show. She began to remember her grandmother baking tea cakes for her siblings and cousins. She recalled the immense amount of care and compassion she experienced sitting in her grandmother’s kitchen. It all became clear what she needed to do and in November 2017 Miss Peabody’s was born. “When I’m baking, I can feel my grandmother hugging me.” Miss Peabody was the nickname given to Pamela by her Grandma Helen.  For those wondering what exactly is a tea cake: tea cakes are a combination of a cake, cookie, and biscuit all rolled into one. The result is a buttery, tender, chewy bite of deliciousness. Not only are they delicious but they are hard to turn down with flavors that stray from the tradition. In addition Gluten Free varieties are available as well. Look out for Miss Peabody's coming soon to a new Herbal Honey gift box!

    6. Sparkle Robinson - Destiny Connections

      What can we say about Destiny Connections other than we love it!  Sparkle has been an amazing resource in coaching us towards our destiny and passion.

    7. Spirit Corley  - Gem Scents Aromatics

      Gem Scents was an instant hit and replaced all of our store bought perfumes!

These intoxicating aromatic body oils are the Perfect Perfume Alternative! Spirit turned her passion and gift of scent into purpose manifesting a conscious brand and collection of natural bath & body oil products. This all manifested as a result of autoimmune disorder that challenged her in many ways; emotionally, spiritually, and physically but I chose to take that challenge and turn it into a business.
