Traveling abroad is the new black. More than ever broadening our horizons is being encouraged, especially amongst young black millennials. However traveling while black brings it’s own challenges, including how to bring your necessary beauty supplies without racking up an overweight bag. Chicago native Orion Brown created a solution with her business, The Black Travel Box.
“On a recent trip to Japan, I found myself out of product and out of luck in finding something that would work for me. I knew I couldn’t be the only one in this predicament, so I founded The Black Travel Box.”
The Black Travel Box offers travel friendly hair and body care products, made with us in mind! Orion says her brand is dedicated to empowering multicultural travellers to #travelincolor, bringing their best selves wherever their journey might take them.
“When you look your best, you feel good, and that’s what we want our customers to take away from their trip.”
The listed products include balms for the body, hair, and lips, and lotion bars. You can also try out some products by ordering $2 samples!
The Black Travel Box plans to expand their reach this fall, including partnerships with outside brands and influencers. Orion hopes to add more products as business grows, such as sun screen, and shaving and deep conditioning products.
“We want to be the go-to brand for Black travelers and provide a community and product they feel excited and proud to take on their journeys.”
Seems like this small business may be the answer to all your traveling while black woes, with not only great products but a great design! As we continue to create our own representation in travel, having handy brands like this will go a long way! Interested in placing an order?
