MyBlackBeautyBox is the brainchild of Mercedes Jenkins-Carter, a Los Angeles native and Accounting professional with a passion for hair, skin care and supporting black entrepreneurs. She wanted to combine her love of quality self care products and financially empowering Black business owners by providing a monthly subscription box filled with products from Black owned businesses. Thus, MyBlackBeautyBox was born! Every month our customers receive 10 DELUXE SAMPLE SIZED products including but not limited to, handmade soaps, body scrubs, hair oils, candles, shower gels, and MORE for only $30 plus shipping with all products created by Black entrepreneurs. As a bonus we send FREE directory keychains in every box so you can support black businesses on the go. At MyBlackBeautybox we are committed to bringing much needed revenue into the Black community, creating jobs and opportunities for Black entrepreneurs and creatives while promoting generational wealth that contributes to closing the wage gap. Individual boxes are also for sale without a monthly subscription! So you can send multiple boxes as gifts and keep one or two for yourself. (See FAQs) Mercedes is a believer of God and her mission is to try her best to walk in her purpose. She is also a woman who enjoys finance, spending time with her husband, sharing her love of black womanhood and supporting her community in their entrepreneurial endeavors.
