BLK + GRN
For years, mainstream beauty brands have marketed toxic products for Black women. In response to this problem, Dr. Kristian Henderson founded BLK + GRN, a premier Black-owned shop for holistic, ethically sourced, toxic-free products all produced by Black artisans.
“Black people still have worse health outcomes than their white counterparts. There is an array of potential root causes – systematic racism, unconscious and conscious bias, and mistrust,” Dr. Henderson told Madame Noire in 2018. “If we do not begin to question our habits and change our behaviors, our life expectancy is only going to continue to shorten. I want to empower our communities to take control of our health and wellness, and BLK + GRN is the first step.”
