Melanin boxes was created due to the lack of representation within the beauty box industry in Sweden. Many boxes on the market rarely speak to people of color with origins outside of Sweden.
Therefore the CEO of Melanin Boxes Thérèse Kodjo offers such service with inclusiveness in mind. Including all people no matter race, gender and other attributes in the process of choosing products featured in the box.
By creating two sets of boxes Melanin Boxes includes, non-black people of color and black people of color.
The Original Melanin Box aims to include all people of color and The Ohemaa Melanin Box that celebrate BLACK people and provides products that are necessary in the everyday life of people that are of African descent.
These boxes celebrates the MELANIN that is within us all and gives anyone that needs short break from life products to pampers themselves and remember their greatness no matter origin.
