Finding black owned beauty products can be a hassle in itself. Let alone, sunscreen, a product most black people don't even think that they need. Nigerian sisters, Chinelo Chidozie and Ndidi Obidoa, understand the struggle and for that reason are working to expand the market for black women and WOC. They are also aiming to support communities that produce shea nuts (which they use in their products) in Burkina Faso. Aiming to fill the obvious gap in the beauty product market for people of color Chidozie and Obidoa developed Bolden. The sunblock is developed with a formula that acts more like a moisturizer than a sunscreen; it’s a cream-colored serum that dries clear on the skin.
