The Meaning Behind the Brand


MELANIN MOM CO.

Itโ€™s not just a business but a lifestyle.


Letโ€™s begin by breaking our name down:


๐Œ๐ž๐ฅ๐š๐ง๐ข๐ง: a dark brown to black pigment occurring in the hair, skin, & iris of the eye in people. In essence, every human has the same amount of melanocytes but some melanocytes produce more melanin than others (hence the darker skin tone & hair)


** Yet, we are judged by the amount of melanin we produce. We are seen differently because of our skin color.


๐Œ๐จ๐ฆ: (for one Iโ€™m a mom) but โ€œMomโ€ can be defined as someone who took you in and loves you unconditionally. That is biological mothers, adopted mothers, grandmas, aunties, or even cousins. Mom is someone who puts others before herself, someone who is caring, loving, selfless, and is the glue that holds everyone & everything together.


** Yet, we are often overlooked, disrespected, and because weโ€™re supposed to be the โ€œstrong black womanโ€ we are judged if we show emotions or considered โ€œweakโ€. We canโ€™t be tired because then we are considered lazy. We donโ€™t have room to be stressed because well โ€œwe put ourselves in this situationโ€. We feel guilty when we get a little โ€œme timeโ€ or self-care. Oh and donโ€™t get me started on the healthcare system (the increased mortality rate for our black mothers โ€ฆ should we talk about it???)


๐‚๐จ.: prefix word meaning joint, together, with


** We know the saying, โ€œit takes a village to raise a kidโ€ but we need a village first which begins with Melanin Mom Co. We are here to form a sisterhood and a safe haven for other melanin moms like us.




Melanin Mom Co. is not a business that idolizes our blackness but shows appreciation of how God made us, loves every part of us, acknowledges the challenges that come from being black and most of all having faith and knowing God is the center of it all!
