Each month, in our B Corp series, we write about one or more B Corporations featured at the B Corp website. There are many B Corps doing outstanding work in their communities, there are many creating great products in ways that improve the lives of people, and all are leading their industries by example.
AMS Fulfillment is proud to be a B Corporation, leading by example in our arena as well. Our safety series of blogs provides many examples of our focus on safety, our efforts at diversity, equity and inclusion are proven in our “Women in Leadership” series, the work of our Green Team is featured in a blog series and our outstanding work in supporting charities and hiring from within disadvantaged groups show a true dedication to the community. Finally our free education and training of employees demonstrates that AMS is leading our industry by example.
In this blog series we are featuring B Corps that are Black-owned, creating products and offering shopping opportunities that our readers might enjoy. We will feature Melanin Essentials, GOODEE and Yala and we hope readers will click on the links and check out their products.

3 Outstanding Black-Owned B Corps Brands That Lead Their Industries by Example
The American brand Melanin Essentials is a social impact beauty company dedicated to manufacturing high-quality personal care products that respect the Earth and your melanin. The brand was founded in 2017 by Saba Williams and Olayinka Credle. “Melanin Essentials is a social enterprise that is pioneering how we think about beauty,” Credle says. “We aim to be the first Black-women-owned brand to give voice and visibility to the fight against climate change while addressing the inequities experienced by persons of color within the beauty industry. We manufacture high-quality personal care products responsibly made with your melanin in mind.” Using clean ingredients and sustainable packaging, Melanin Essentials seeks to combat environmental and health hazards.

After founding the acclaimed brand WANT Les Essentiels in 2007, the twin brothers set out on a new venture to launch and develop meaningful brands dedicated to offering sustainable solutions for modern living. This time, however, the pair decided to work exclusively with artisans and products that make a positive social or environmental impact.
