The First-Ever List of Top Non-Toxic Black-Owned Beauty Brands & Database Products Verified by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

SAN FRANCISCO – October 18, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (CSC)’s new List of Top Non-Toxic Black-Owned Beauty Brands features entrepreneurs making safer beauty products for Black women, free of the toxic ingredients linked to breast cancer and health concerns that disproportionately impact Black women. This project brings health equity to the forefront by providing a database of clean beauty products to help Black women and girls live their healthiest lives and prevent breast cancer. CSC’s Top Non-Toxic Black Beauty Brands 2022 >  CSC’s Non-Toxic Black Beauty Product Database >  

Released during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Non-Toxic Black Beauty Project focuses specifically on supporting Black women’s health because Black women face the highest breast cancer mortality rate of any racial or ethnic group in America. Beauty products marketed to Black women often contain the most toxic cosmetics ingredients, including chemicals linked to cancer. In fact, Black women who regularly dye their hair have a 60% increased risk of breast cancer, and those who use chemical hair straighteners are 30% more likely to develop the disease. By uplifting leading non-toxic Black-owned beauty brands and connecting Black women with products they can trust, CSC aims to combat toxic health disparities to help prevent breast cancer and other diseases. 

The 80 small and medium-sized businesses who made the list raise the bar for ingredient safety and lead the movement to address the injustice of Black beauty by selling products free of CSC’s 241 “Do Not Use” Red List Chemicals of Concern in Cosmetics. CSC vetted all 700+ products included in the first-ever searchable database for safety and verified them to be free of harmful chemicals linked to health concerns like cancer, diabetes, early puberty, endometriosis, infertility, maternal health, pregnancy complications, and uterine fibroids. 

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of our searchable database of non-toxic Black beauty products,” said Janet Nudelman, Director of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a program of Breast Cancer Prevention Partners. “These leading Black entrepreneurs are making safer beauty products that won’t harm the health of Black women and girls. We hope that more companies will follow their lead and grow the clean Black beauty industry by selling non-toxic beauty and personal care products that Black women can trust.” 

As Black women purchase and use more beauty products per capita than any other demographic, spending more than $7.5 billion dollars on beauty products a year and nine times more on hair products than the average consumer, toxic exposure from beauty products is of particular concern. 

By eliminating toxic ingredients that negatively impact Black women, these companies have made a significant commitment to protecting their customers’ health and well-being. They are also helping to reduce the disproportionate toxic burden that Black women face from unsafe chemicals in beauty and other consumer products they use, which can help prevent the development of chronic diseases like breast and ovarian cancer. 

The Non-Toxic Black Beauty Project is guided by an Advisory Committee made up of leading non-profit organizations and scientists working to improve Black women’s health. This project represents the first comprehensive effort to generate a list of chemicals of concern in Black beauty products that should be avoided by consumers, cosmetic manufacturers, and retailers.

Volition Beauty and A+E Networks Unveil Product Development Partnership

Star of Lifetime’s “Steppin’ Into The Holiday” Jana Kramer is First Beauty Innovator Under New Deal

Volition Beauty and A+E Networks Unveil Product Development Partnership
VOLITION S\u00e9millon Overnight Retinol Serum

This serum combines the antioxidant power of Grape Seed with a stable, encapsulated Retinol and vegan Hyaluronic Acid to provide a three-prong defense against premature aging.

LOS ANGELES – October 17, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Volition™, the leading beauty platform of the Creator Economy, known for its best-selling clean, vegan and cruelty-free skincare products, today announced it has entered a multi-year beauty product development deal with A+E Networks®. Over the course of the partnership, select A+E talent will become Volition “Innovators,” working hand-in-hand with Brand chemists and creatives to bring unique skincare SKUs to market under the Volition label. 

The first such Innovator is Jana Kramer, star of Lifetime’s upcoming Steppin’ into the Holiday, who has co-created Volition’s new retinol-based collection, starting with the new Volition Sémillon Overnight Retinol Serum with Niacinamide + Hyaluronic Acid launching November 2022, $69. An eye cream and full skincare bundle will follow in early 2023.

“A+E Networks is thrilled to launch this foundational enterprise with Volition as we further extend the reach of our Lifetime brand together with meaningful partners. Our first collaboration with Lifetime star Jana Kramer highlights her broad appeal throughout social media as a fervent ambassador for healthy living and natural skin care. We look forward to Jana’s glowing complexion representing the vision of the Lifetime brand extension into skin care,” said Lance Still, SVP, Consumer Enterprises, A+E Networks.

When CEO & Founder Patricia Santos created Volition, her vision was an assortment of products developed with entrepreneurial content creators as authentic extensions of their personal brand. This first A+E Networks collaboration embodies that vision as Kramer wanted to create a unique facial serum that harnessed the antioxidant power of sémillon grape seed in a potent anti-wrinkle serum to help protect skin from free radicals. “I have long been passionate about winemaking, but it always bothered me how the grape seeds are discarded when making white wines,” says Kramer.

“We’re delighted to start this partnership with Jana, as she is passionate about her first product with Volition and her large, engaged audience of beauty enthusiasts will organically amplify our reach.” Volition currently engages with a digital community of approximately 600,000 users and expects that number to increase substantially over the duration of the new deal. “We believe this partnership can revolutionize the way in which brands and talent work together, as we set out to create compelling, new beauty ideas,” says Santos of the future with A+E Networks talent and expanded brand offerings from Volition. “This is an exciting start.”

Steppin’ into the Holiday follows the story of former Broadway star Billy Holiday (Mario Lopez) who returns to his hometown for Christmas after being abruptly fired from a hit TV series “Celebrity Dance Off.” While there, he encounters Rae (Jana Kramer), the charismatic owner of the local dance studio where Billy’s 12-year-old nephew is her standout student. Rae and Billy collaborate to revive the town’s traditional Christmas Eve show as a dance recital fundraiser and romantic sparks start flying! Steppin’ into the Holiday premieres Friday, November 25 at 8/7C on Lifetime.

Sémillon Overnight Retinol Serum with Niacinamide + Hyaluronic Acid is available at volitionbeauty.com and will retail at Ulta.com beginning January 2023.
