In the lead­ing para­graph, you ref­er­ence a pre­vi­ous arti­cle about 27 black owned cos­met­ic com­pa­nies. Why not link direct­ly to that pre­vi­ous arti­cle instead of forc­ing us to search for it? I’m inter­est­ed in read­ing it but can’t find it! Not to men­tion, link­ing to it in this arti­cle is con­sid­ered “cross-link­ing” and will boost your SEO.

It’s below in the relat­ed arti­cles sec­tion.. you scrolled past it to com­ment.


Typ­i­cal­ly, we always cross-link ref­er­enced arti­cles. Guess this one flew under the radar. The arti­cle has been updat­ed. Thanks for bring­ing this to our atten­tion, King!


Thanks for the update!
