SassBoxx is a monthly subscription service which provides curated items from our favorite local beauty and lifestyle brands, delivered directly to you. The unique twist is that the merchandise comes exclusively from girls of color. Company founder, Sapphira Martin, 27, said “It’s necessary for us to assist black companies .. African people should carry again that united power that we’ve gained from our ancestors.”
Launched in January 2016, each Sassbox comprises 4 to seven products that vary from candles and inspirational notepads to motivational merchandise. It is a welcome addition to the “buy black” effort which has been gaining momentum. Martin will get theme concepts for the containers from media, the ladies’ rights movement, her household and the sheer existence of black girls. Past boxes have featured products from Shea Moisture, Beautie Brownie, Lisa Lacquer, OliveitBoutique and many more.
When Martin’s not tending to the life-style of black girls via SassBoxx, she’s doing so via the “Black Girl Podcast,” which she co-hosts with 4 of her friends.
