We live in a time where we understand that our money is a powerful voice of support or rejection. Between buying green, buying organic, buying local, and boycotting companies that we don’t believe align with our values, we’ve seen the massive result of what can happen if people start to vote with their dollar. Businesses embrace it, customers benefits, and it creates a win/win for all!
Now, more than ever, we should add a new question to the mix when we’re shopping: “Is this business Black-owned?”
In light of recent events, we’ve seen a lot of conversations on how to support communities in need. To help prioritize that mindset, we’ve rounded up 20 Black-owned businesses on Amazon that you can support right now. These businesses range from fashion to electronics and everything in between and all of this stuff is just downright awesome: another win/win in my book!
We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and Brainjolt may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!

This Children’s Shampoo With The Slogan “Children Are Always Beautiful, Naturally”
I could talk about how great this shampoo is but don’t even take this one from me, I couldn’t say it any better than this:
“I stumbled upon Cara B while researching natural kid/baby products and realized they seem legit with the “all natural” claims. I decided to start with the Shampoo/wash and tried it out as soon as it arrived. Hallelujah! It smells great, works great, does what it says. I’m ordering one of the bundles next so I can try the other three products and will let you know what I think later. In the meantime, this shampoo/bodywash is a keeper!” – travelnista
