A Note From Our Founder

I've traveled to 14 countries, taken 6000+ photos and only a handful with me in them. Why? Besides wanting to take photos of the local culture and breathtaking views... I pretty much travel on a permanent bad hair day. But on a recent trip to Japan, as I realized there was no venturing into a store for hair pomade, it occurred to me that I can't be the only one out in these streets longing for a little shea butter goodness so I could take some dope #blacktravel photos even on a rainy day in Kyoto. So hot mess and all I decided to be the change that I sought... namely, creating The Black Travel Box. We're a company that believes no foreign lands, desert sands, beachy waves, or mountain summits should be deprived of your beauty - inside and out. So we make hair and body care products to make you look and feel your best on vacation. And even if your travels take you closer to home, like the gym or an out of town client meeting, we've got you covered.

orion@theblacktravelbox.com
Orion founded The Black Travel Box with the goal to bring natural hair, skin and body products to travelers of color. This line of TSA-friendly products help Black and Afro-Latinx travelers look and feel their best on the road. Prior to The Black Travel Box, she briefly lead brand strategy at Oracle and brand marketing efforts at Hasbro and spent the bulk of her brand career at Kraft Foods where she led key advertising, pricing, portfolio, commercialization, and operations initiatives across six global brands. Her passion for businesses and brands also led her to build a non-profit consultancy where she helps clients strategize and scale their organizations. She's a lover of travel and food, spending much of her free time outside of The Black Travel Box pursuing the best of both.
