BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With the rise in popularity of subscription box services during the pandemic, the entrepreneur behind a new beauty box service hopes to offer something different while supporting families affected by COVID-19 and promoting emerging black-owned businesses with every box they sell.
Vnus Box, founded by actress and philanthropist La Vera Wilson, features a curated selection of all-natural skincare and beauty supplies as well as jewelry, wellness products, apparel, accessories, and homewares from black-owned businesses delivered monthly to subscribers' doorsteps. Each Vnus Box is filled with eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty-free goodies that meet the unique interests and needs of each subscriber, including exclusive artwork from local artists.
La Vera Wilson couldn’t sit by and watch as families struggled during the coronavirus pandemic. With millions of unemployed people challenged to meet fundamental needs, the actress and philanthropist wanted to provide relief for low-income families while boosting black-owned businesses. That’s why she decided to start Vnus Box.
Born of the public health crisis, Vnus Box is a female-focused monthly subscription service that provides natural beauty products that empower customers—and their creators. What’s unique about Vnus Box is the fact that it puts diversity at the fore. Each box promotes the work of black entrepreneurs and artists, including a selection of “all-natural skincare and beauty supplies as well as jewelry, wellness products, apparel, accessories and homewares from black-owned businesses,” according to a press release from the company.
