In October of 2020, retailer Nordstrom launched Inclusive Beauty, a category of Black-founded and owned brands comprised of Baby Tress, Beauty Bakerie, Beauty Stat, Bomba Curls, Briogeo, Epara, and MANTL. This month, they’ve added five new brands to the “created for everyone” collection, with the inclusion of UOMA, ROSEN, Sienna Naturals, Unsun and 54 Thrones, available both in-store and online.
