Black-owned businesses are gaining popularity in the world of e-commerce. Amazon has especially seen black-owned businesses increase over the past few years.
Many people use Amazon to shop for everyday items, gifts, clothes, travel accessories, etc. No matter the item, if you search for it you are bound to find it along with other alternatives. While some people have their go-to brands when it comes to online shopping Amazon is the place where people come to explore.
After doing some exploring of my own I came across some amazing black businesses to support. Below are 5 black-owned Amazon stores that you can explore and shop with now!
5 Black Owned Amazon Stores
1. Mecca Candle Co.
Mecca Candle Co. sells candles that are soy-based.
Soy-based candles are environment friendly and burn slower than paraffin wax ultimately giving you more burn life out of the candle. Each candle contains essential and fragrance oils and is hand-poured. Some scents include “Succulents” (pictured above), “Watermelon”, “Lemonade”, etc. Whatever you choose is sure to be a hit!
2. True Decor
True Decor sells various home goods items from decor to essentials such as laundry detergent. This item clearly is a favorite because it is rated 5-stars on Amazon!
Notables about this detergent:
- Removes Dirt, Brightens Fabric
- 4X Concentrated-Saves Money
- Biodegradable, Non Toxic and Phosphorus-Free
- Safe For Sensitive Skin
- Contains No Animal By-Products
3. Mielle Organics
For all the natural gals this black-owned haircare line is a must-try.
I personally love the Pomegranate & Honey product line because it works great on my type 4 hair. It also smells amazing, so that’s another plus!
Mielle’s Curl Smoothie provides moisture and strength with natural ingredients like pomegranate extract, babassu oil, and honey. It is also easy to use and you get a good amount of product. For instance, I often run out of products quickly, but with this product, I don’t have to worry about it running out in a month. It’s a great investment, to say the least.
4. Joe’s Gourmet
In 2018 Joe’s Gourmet appeared on the hit show Shark Tank. Following their appearance, on the show, their business skyrocketed to where it is now.
This fish fry seasoning allows you to bring tastes from Louisiana right to your kitchen! It’s an excellent seasoning bread batter or coating for catfish, shrimp, whitefish, trout, and more. Joe’s Gourmet also encourages at-home chefs to try the seasoning on vegetables to increase flavor.
5. Twiggy Fresh
Twiggy Fresh offers a variety of items, but their biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes are their most popular items.
These toothbrushes are not only good for the environment they are also great for your teeth. Dentist’s recommended brushing with nylon bristles, and these toothbrushes will allow you to do just that. Since bamboo is compostable when done with this toothbrush you can simply pull out the bristles with pliers and compost the handle.
I hope you take some time to support these black-owned businesses. After you do so from the comfort of your home feel free to share with friends and family to spread the word.
