Black Entrepreneur Changing the World With Mineral-Based and Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Products

Monique Glover, founder of LaMonique Cosmetics

Meet Monique Glover, founder and CEO of LaMonique Cosmetics, an affordable all-inclusive luxurious, and health-conscious brand that retails mineral-based cosmetics. She is a staunch advocate of the production and usage of healthy and cruelty-free cosmetics and uses her voice to spread awareness about the side effects of toxic chemicals in makeup and personal care products.

Monique's determination to produce mineral-based products and avoid harsh alcohols, talc, endocrine, and hormone disruptors in the manufacturing process helps to ensure her customers' well-being & safety. She was able to achieve this by incorporating natural pigments such as titanium oxide, zinc oxide, and iron oxides in the products.

In addition, she uses freeze-dried Vitamins A, E & D to add to the functionality of the products. Because parabens are linked to cancer and can cause reproductive issues, her line of cosmetics is entirely paraben-free and gluten-free to ensure that the products are overall suitable for a substantial portion of the population, especially for those enduring the distress of Celiac Disease. Her products are also hypoallergenic and don't contain talc or silica.

Her products are so unique and successful that Facebook decided to featured her company on the Facebook/Meta Business page as part of their #buyblack holiday program.

Monique comments, "The world is home to 7.8 billion people and more than 8 million other species, and every living being has the same rights to live peacefully on the planet. Many consumers are now worried about the future of the world. To make this world a safe place for everyone, consumer choices are heavily influenced by the product's environmental and health effects. Cosmetics are an essential part of everyone's life, but many people are concerned about the safety and social/environmental impact of cosmetic products."

She continues, "In addition, many people have to filter out the products based on the allergy and intolerance to specific chemical and natural constituents. Many have problematic skin, and they have to skim through thousands of products even to find something suitable. This is why I'm so passionate about introducing safe, healthy & cruelty-free products, and it's the core reason why I started my company."
