Today is International Women’s Day—so that obviously means we should make purchases from women-owned brands, right? Right. And, to no one’s surprise, Amazon is fully stocked with a bunch of brands owned by none other than iconic women.
From clean beauty brands to home essentials (think humidifiers just in time for allergy season!), mocktail drinks, snacks, and more—Amazon makes it easy to put your money where your mouth is and support women in biz. Check out eight brands from the e-tailer that are worth the hype and your cash.
Cindy Kang co-founded Hey Dewy in 2019 with her husband and bestie, Eugene. It’s a health and wellness brand that offers shoppers chic, portable, and effective (!) humidifiers to use at home or on-the-go. The products deliver mist to keep sinuses clear, combat dry skin, alleviate allergies, and allow for more quality sleep—basically a recipe to keep you super healthy. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re *so cute.* Who wouldn’t want one on their nightstand?
Versed was founded by serial entrepreneur, Katherine Power, (founder of WhoWhatWear and Merit Beauty). It’s quickly become one of the few affordable clean skincare brands on the market. It has the essentials for your face and body skin routines like cleansing balms, body acne sprays, and cult-favorite moisturizers that won’t burn a hole in your wallet.

Belly Bandit was founded by three sisters, Lori, Jodi, and Kari Caden to offer skin-smoothing solutions for everyone. The purpose behind the brand is for women to feel and look their best before, during, and after pregnancy. You can find everything from sculpting bike shorts to leak-proof underwear, because, let’s face it, you may need a little extra coverage as a mom.

Kosas has been disrupting the beauty industry since Sheena Yaitanes launched this chic and minimalistic brand. This is clean-first makeup with everything from lip gloss to tinted moisturizers, concealers, and mascaras on deck. But its other products deserve some clout too. Kosas has one of the top-selling clean deodorants in the game, and a fan-favorite plumping serum.
