Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade Launch Proudly For Affordable Baby Care For Melanated Babies

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s baby care line is officially available for parents to get their hands on. In June 2021, AfroTech previously reported that the power couple had announced Proudly — a first-of-its-kind skin care brand for melanated babies — which was co-designed by dermatologist Dr. Naana Boakye. The brand has now launched for parents with children of color to have access to affordable baby care products, according to WWD. “These products are meant to fill a gap for parents of color, like ourselves, by offering them intentionally developed formulas that put our children’s needs at the core,” Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade said in a statement, according to WWD. “Our hope is that for the first time ever, parents of children of color don’t need to spend money on products that aren’t effective or worry about what might irritate their children’s skin. We’ve done the work so they don’t have to.”
