Black Edged manufactures products scientifically formulated to meet the health and lifestyle needs of Black people. Recently, the black-owned, health and apparel brand announced a new addition to their line of products: custom face shields.

The Houston, Texas-based company entered the market in early 2020 with its first dietary supplement Black Edged “D” — a pure vitamin D3 supplement (5,000 IU) blended with critical “cofactor” nutrients zinc, calcium, and magnesium to enhance its efficacy. They expanded their product line to include limited-edition apparel that embodies the “Black Edged” ethos. Now, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company is offering two versions of its custom-designed face shield.

“Our company puts a lot of energy into ensuring that our supplements are of the highest quality and that they are packaged in the most visually appealing way possible,” said Ernesto Sigmon, CEO of Black Edged. “Designing custom face shields at a time like this is just a natural extension.”

The shields, that the company calls neck gaiters, can be used as a face covering, headband, bandana, wristband, and neck warmer. The Black Edged neck gaiters are beautifully designed and feature the company’s black swan logo.

“The neck gaiters perfectly capture the Black Edged ethos,” Sigmon said. “Black Edged is a state of mind … a powerful state of mind. We want everyone wearing our gear to feel that when they put it on and head out the door. We also want them to be safe in these uncertain times—wearing an article of clothing that will offer a measure of protection when interacting with others.”

The neck gaiters cost $20 and are currently available in two patterns, the “Leo” and the “Miles”.

With the CDC recommending that everyone in the U.S. wear “cloth face coverings” to slow the spread of the virus, now is a good time to order yours and support a new, black-owned business in the process.
