Who It's For
In the summer of 2017, Bryanna saw a need for skincare products that focused on sensitive skin, while still allowing fun with fragrances and colors. It was that summer that Bryanna used her curiosity and inspiration to research and create products that were sensitive skin friendly, thus starting KoKo Beauty Essentials. Initially starting with just three items, KoKo Beauty Essentials has grown to provide more than 30 hand formulated products for the face, body, and hair.
Since launching in 2017, Bryanna has lead KoKo Beauty Essentials with the mission to provide quality beauty products to support the body’s natural ability to thrive and glow. This mission has led KoKo Beauty Essentials to be adored by hundreds of loyal customers all over the US, including partnerships and features with Genevas Market in New Jersey and Up Boxes, an online based subscription box.
The Bon Don began as a mere passion project dedicated to Black women. Shelbie was inspired to create the company after a series of failed attempts to find the perfect bonnet at my local beauty supply stores. Knowing what qualities she wanted to see in her bonnet, she scoured Atlanta for a bonnet that was big enough to contain her hair, sturdy enough to weather the storm of a good night’s sleep & aesthetically pleasing. Shelbie didn’t find what she needed in stores, so decided to take her search to the fabric store. It was there where she picked out the satin fabric for her first bonnet. Soon thereafter, she realized that many of her close friends were also struggling to find bonnets that met their needs. It was at this point that the seed for The Bon Don was planted.
Clinical pharmacist by day, and designer by night, Shelbie is dedicated to narrowing the gap between Black people and good care across the entire spectrum — all the way from our health to our hair. The Bon Don was created to stand in the gap between currently available hair maintenance products, and the high-quality hair maintenance products that we all deserve and require. It is for this reason that every bonnet and hair-maintenance product produced by The Bon Don has been intentionally designed, re-designed, and re-redesigned with love & attention to detail.
Candace Parrish, Ph.D. is the founder and creator of Odelia, Marie & Patrice, LLC and Yellow Plate Vegan, LLC. Candace received an interdisciplinary Ph.D. related to the areas of Public Relations, Health Communication, and Visual Communication from Virginia Commonwealth University.
After being recognized nationally and internationally for her research, she decided to apply her love for design and artistry with her research in health communication to make vegan, small-batch, environmentally friendly, and luxury art and body care products. Candace is an advocate for offering decadent products that provide “everyday luxury” to her customers and clients. With a special focus on herbs and herbalism, she puts great detail in making sure to utilize natural and organic ingredients to create the most healthy and decadent products.
Through Odelia, Marie, & Patrice (OM&P), Candace also helps to pour back into minority community activists and social movements like prison reform. The boutique design company has gained attraction for its roots in activism and for its current campaign for Marqus Profic–this entails a high-end candle set in which 100% of the proceeds go to Marqus Profic’s attorney fees. Marqus Profic was wrongly convicted of murder and has been in prison for 18 years. OM&P’s campaign to raise funds and awareness for Marqus’ journey home is a meaningful one for the design company and a glimpse of the impact the organization will have in activism in the future.

Kali is a wife, mother, and proud Owner/Founder/Creator of Uniquely Premium Bath Products. Her journey into entrepreneurship started in 2020, during the covid pandemic. Out of work and full of ambition, she set out on a journey that would change her life forever. She knew she wanted to create something and start a legacy her family could be proud of. However, she never imagined her very small dream would impact others in such a big way. She decided to start a bath company because she saw a desperate need for bath products that smelled great and left skin moisturized without feeling greasy or leaving a film on the skin. Her feedback from friends and family about her bath products was overwhelming and Uniquely was born. In the last 10 months, Uniquely has sold over 5,000 items and featured by Etsy.com, Buzzfeed.com, moxiiskates, and various other blogs and publications.
