There’s a reason Uncle Ray refers to his brand, Uncle Ray’s Products, as the “Nubian Procter & Gamble”. The Black and family-run business has been manufacturing personal care and household products since 1988. They’ve formulated more than 50 products offered under their label and for notable brands across the United States.
It all started when Uncle Ray was working as a paramedic in the 80s. He grew tired of the pungent odor that would linger in the employee bathroom. The products they were using weren’t working, so he set out to create his own odor eliminator.
Immediately he and other employees noticed that Uncle Ray’s formulation was more effective at deodorizing the bathroom. That’s when his signature bathroom spray was born.
Since then, Uncle Ray’s Products has created private label consumer goods, including body soaps, shampoos, and dish soaps for several Black-owned companies. Along with their Blooming Toilet Pre-Potty Spray, Uncle Ray also carries their own line of personal care products. Their Black Seed Oil line is the most popular among their brand. They also offer natural hair care products, including their famous Caribbean Secret Hair Butter.
Brand Expands to Personalized Candle Making
In 2023, founder Uncle Ray decided to expand the brand to offer a candle making course. The Candle Crafter’s Academy is ideal if you want to learn how to make candles and even start your own candle brand. Or, you can enroll to create personalized candles for gifts, such as Mother’s Day gifts. If you’d rather not make your own personalized candle, Uncle Ray’s Products can customize one for you. Their newest brand, Candles Customized 4U, creates unique personalized candles, including putting a picture of that special person on the candle.
