6 Women-Owned Wellness Brands & Products You Needed to Have Like Yesterday
Women are the sh*t. We know it, you know it, and there’s not enough recognition for it. As a wellness brand owned and run by women, we feel that it is so necessary to highlight the other thriving businesses in our community, and to listen to and learn from and amplify others’ voices. Without further ado, here are 6 of our current favorite women-owned wellness brands.
Brown Girl Jane CBD: This iconic CBD brand was founded when sisters Malaika and Nia Jones paired up with wellness and beauty expert Tai Beauchamp. They started Brown Girl Jane with the aim to create a safe space that supports approachable and realistic wellness centering women of color, and a product line to go with it.
The Goods: CBD Facial Serum, CBD Tincture, Intimate Oil, Sleep Drops, Whipped CBD Body butter
Golde: Trinity Mouzon Wofford and partner Issey Kobori were on a mission to bring good vibes to the wellness industry. In 2017, they founded Golde in Brooklyn, NY; a brand centered in making superfood-boosting essentials for both health and beauty. Every product is natural, easy and (most importantly) fun.
The Goods: Superfood masks, matcha, superfood latte blends.
Sundays Studio: Having always valued individuality, simplicity, and wellness, Amy Lin founded Sundays Studio with an intention to provide a space that reached beyond her non-toxic, salon-quality nail care products and services. From employee, to client to social followers, Amy has created a community that shares a passion for wellness and an understanding that beauty doesn’t require sacrifice.
The Goods: Non-toxic nail polishes, salon services, self-love merch
Live Tinted: Deepica Mutyala went viral in 2015 after posting a video of how to erase undereye circles with red lipstick, quickly gaining a platform as a beauty influencer. In 2018, she launched Live Tinted, a digital platform that explores diverse beauty and creates a space for under-represented voices to share their experiences in beauty, culture & identity. In 2019, Deepica launched the Huestick (her first beauty product!) based on these stories, and plans to continue creating inclusive beauty products “for every shade in between.”
The Goods: Huesticks in a full range of gorgeous shades, super cute merch
Lola: Jordana Kier and Alexandra Friedman were frustrated with not being able to figure out the ingredients in tampons, (get this: the FDA doesn’t require companies to disclose such info. Yeah, wild) so they created their own from 100% cotton. Lola was born as a solution to a lack of transparency within the industry, and has grown to a full reproductive health brand.
The Goods: tampons, pads, cleansing wipes, period starter kits, multivitamins and essential oils to help with cramps, condoms, and lubricants.
Kween & Co: Ali Bonar has had a lifelong passion for health & wellness. After creating a platform via @avokween where she’s shared her journey from disordered eating to intuitive eating (and continues to provide wellness inspo, recipes, tips & tricks) and acquiring a degree in Nutritional Science from UC Berkeley, she still isn’t done. Ali (with the help of Eric Katz & Ari Schraer) created Kween & Co to bring nut-free “nut” butters to the market, made with whole food ingredients and without all top allergens.
The Goods: Granola butter in 3 delicious flavors
Have fun exploring these current faves, share your own, and remember that we’re stronger together, always. Be well!
