Black Spending On Health And Beauty Care Product Dollars Can Serve As An Economic Boom For Our Community

By Phil Andrews

National - - It is no secret that African Americans spend a huge amount of money on Health and Beauty Products. A recent article suggests that African American spend to the tune of $437 million in the ethnic hair and beauty market.

We need to reconsider areas such as these where we are spending a substantial amount of money as potential opportunities to expand employment and wealth. The strength of African Americans as a community needs to parlay into using our collective will, collective consciousness, and spending purse to have our dollars remain in areas of our community to support existing businesses in the health and beauty industry.

Recently, the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. and the Southeast Queens Scoop, began to work with ButterMEssentials, a Natural Hair Care and Body Company which has produced a variety of products which cater to women, men, and children so there is something for the whole family. Quality Business partnerships such as these will yield tremendous success in the Black Community.
