Our Story

Black Girl Vitamins was founded with one clear motive: to provide Black Women with unique nutrients and vitamins that generic brands tend to overlook. 
For years vitamins and supplements have not been tailored to the black community, the industry never prioritized the needs of black women, which are unique and need to be thoughtfully catered to. 
Our cofounder Maxine started learning more about the discrepancy black women faced in finding and receiving healthcare, she decided to work with a team to address one section of the healthcare gap and grow to provide more health services to black women.

For our black ladies in healthcare, we’re also fueling our BGV Promise to donate $1 from every bottle of Black Girl Vitamins sold to go to providing scholarships for Black women in school for healthcare related fields
