Vera Moore CosmeticsThis black female owned beauty company has been around since the 1970s after founder Vera Moore, and one of the first African-American actresses on a soap opera, couldn’t find foundations in her shade to appear on camera. Vera Moore’s newest offering is in the skincare space: the “Signature Skincare Collection” (holiday price $75 from $125) features her anti-aging “Peptide + Serum” which is designed to firm and tighten. The serum also has the peptide Matrixyl, which helps restore skin’s collagen. Rounding out the collection is the “C+ Moisturizer” with Vitamin C, which stimulates collagen production.
