5 Consumer Goods Brands to Support in Honor of Black History Month

February 21, 2023

If you missed the kickoff of our Bolt Black History Month series, catch up on our top five brands making an impact in the health and wellness industry. Today, we’re featuring Black-owned consumer goods brands that you’ll want to add to your shopping list. From out-of-this-world coffee and mouth-watering cookies, to cruelty free cosmetics and paints that pop, there’s something for everyone on this list. 

Our PR, content development and digital marketing team is proud to amplify these Black-owned brands and founders who are well deserving of accolades this month and all throughout the year. So, grab your wish list, because you’re about to add five impressive products to it. 

1. BLK & Bold

Here’s a brand that will make you say “good morning” with a smile on your face. Brewed with the busy lifestyle in mind, BLK & Bold offers specialty coffee blends that are – you guessed it – bold in flavor and caffeine. Co-founders Pernell Cezar and Rod Johnson crafted this company with a deeper mission than a delicious cup of coffee. BLK & Bold pledges 5% of its proceeds to nonprofit organizations nationwide that help youth in need with resources to become the best versions of themselves. Now there’s an impact that’s bigger than that morning caffeine kick. 

2. Mented Cosmetics

Ethically made cosmetics that are non-toxic and cruelty-free are in high demand, and the creators at Mented Cosmetics work around the clock to make the beauty products that customers want, with countless options that are both good for the environment and all skin types. Strikingly “pigMented” and smooth, Mented offers lipsticks, foundations and everything in between.

Founders KJ Miller and Amanda E Johnson wanted to celebrate the beauty of diversity with a unique line of products that made every skin type feel the love. Head over to their website to try their shade finder feature to find your perfect skin-tone match and begin building your personalized collection. It’s that easy to achieve glowing skin that’s also good for you and the environment.

3. Jrumz

Jrumz founder Dr. Lana Joseph-Ford set out on a mission to achieve gender balance in the music industry, and she achieved just that. With customized earphones, Dr. Lana Joseph-Ford has helped countless artists, such as award-winner Ari Lennox, get the best and clearest sound both on tour and at home.

Experience your favorite music like never before, with crisp, clear audio that will transport you to another world. Jrumz's endless line of products features a secure, personalized fit, so you can wear your earphones all day long without any discomfort. And with a long battery life, you won't have to worry about constantly recharging. That’s right, keep the music going for hours on end. That’s the power of listening to the needs of the consumer. 

4. Clare

We know you’ve been staring at that bland living room or bedroom wall thinking a pop of color would be perfect this spring. Say no more, because Clare paint has you and your wall covered. Founder Nicole Gibbons started Clare with a simple mission in mind: paint shopping shouldn’t be a hassle. The brand has reimagined a whole new paint shopping experience with designer-curated colors, mess-free swatches, and the highest-quality paint and supplies, delivered straight to your door. Now that’s painting stress-free.

5. Partake

If you’re as hungry as we are upon reaching the end of this blog, it’s time to add some buttery soft cookies from Partake Foods into your shopping cart. With options ranging from chocolate chip, birthday cake, lemon, snickerdoodle, and many more, there’s a recipe for every sweet tooth. Founder Denise Woodard wanted allergy-friendly, gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan cookie options in the grocery aisle and just couldn’t find many delicious options available, so she made them! Now Partake’s cookies are beloved by dessert enthusiasts across the country, and our mouths are watering just writing about them.
