Father’s Day is just a few days away (June 21st for those unaware), and there’s still time to pull off that perfectly thought out gift idea.
The men in our lives need some self-care moments just like we do, especially with all that we’ve been going through in 2020. So, as you think about that last-minute Father’s Day gift, here are eight Black-owned brands you can shop to elevate his grooming experience.
AARON WALLACE GROOMING
This UK-based brand focuses on hair-care for black men. Their key ingredients of black seed oil and mango butter are rich in nutrients that work to combat dryness, reduce breakage, protect against environmentally caused damage, and encourage healthier hair growth.
Bevel founder, Tristan Walker, created their shaving products to target the specific problems black men face when grooming, like hyperpigmentation, ingrown hair, and inflammation. Bevel’s safety razor has become one of the most popular shavers on the market, but the brand has recently expanded into haircare, skincare, and body care.
Craig the Barber has been keeping the men of Beverly Hills looking sharp for over a decade, with celebrity clients including Michael Jordan and Sean “Puffy” Combs. And he founded this luxury skincare line to provide a solution to the frustrating and overwhelming world of men’s grooming. The line includes their bestselling three-in-one face balm and moisturizing shave cream.
Founded by Patrick Boateng II and Blake Rascoe, this is the first dermatologically-focused skincare brand developed to improve skin issues by men of color. Ceylon’s skincare system consists of three products: a detoxifying cleanser, a hydrating toner, and a clarifying moisturizer.
H.I.M.istry was created by licensed skincare therapist, Darnell Henderson, to address every skincare and grooming problem black men face. Originating in a high-end men’s spa, the line addresses issues from razor and electric shaving irritation to treating acne and hyperpigmentation issues.
Co-founded by Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown, this skincare brand is focused on empowering bald and balding men to live their best lives. Mantl’s products include a cleanser, moisturizer, broad-spectrum sunscreen, and oil-absorbing sheets.
Founded by Jacob Quetant in 2014, this brand was born because the founder couldn’t find any all-natural products that would help him better groom his beard. The collection currently includes a beard oil, a beard balm, a beard conditioner, an herbal lip balm, and a beard comb.
This New-Jersey based grooming brand started after founder, Calvin Quallis, noticed his clientele’s need for products that catered to their hair type. The brand initially only sold products for the beard but has grown into a collection of haircare, skincare, and beard grooming products.
