In honor of Black History Month, February’s “The Globes” are featuring black owned businesses with a commitment to high quality products and ingredients. Each company has been carefully selected because they align with focal points of this site. None of these companies have paid to be featured and all opinions are my own!
Karen’s Body Beautiful.
Karen’s Body Beautiful was founded by namesake and proprietor Karen Tappin in November of 2003 in Brooklyn, New York. Karen began making hair and body products after learning about the presence of preservatives and possible carcinogens in many commercially available products, and decided to create all natural alternatives. Karen’s Body Beautiful went from a small home-based full spa line to a budding brand with a store in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn and a several loyal customers in a short time. Karen’s Body Beautiful follows the philosophy that “ingredients really matter” and has formulated her luxurious spa quality line to exclude ingredients such as “sulfates, parabens, propylene glycol, phthalates, mineral oil, paraffin, DEA, and artificial color.” Her products are for all hair types and skin needs. Offering 13 different fragrances, including unscented, you are sure to find a product that meets your scent, quality, and efficacy standards! Their products are cruelty free and are not tested on animals. Karen’s Body Beautiful products are packed in PET containers and are recyclable!
Karen is quite the entrepreneur. In addition to Karen’s Body Beautiful, she opened a larger store in Brooklyn, NY in 2006, which also features a spa. Her products are now available in select Target stores across the country, in addition to being sold on her website, beauty supply stores, and online boutiques. Karen’s Body Beautiful products have high quality ingredients and feature diverse offerings to suit customer needs. I appreciate her commitment to quality ingredients, as well as her success as an entrepreneur! I have yet to try Karen’s Body Beautiful products, but have heard great things about them. As their presence in Target and similar stores increases I am sure we will hear much more from them in the future.
