Liha Beauty is based in Cheltenham and Hackney and the founders are Liha Okunniwa & Abi Oyepitan, a British-Nigerian duo of beauty junkies obsessed with skin care, natural cosmetics and African beauty secrets.
Liha Beauty was born from the desire to create a luxe, vegan, organic skincare brand that blends the rich botanical life of Africa with traditional English aromatherapy. They create beauty products that are, like them, a mixture of natural African roots and a quintessentially British attitude.
Their line of artisanal products includes pure golden shea butter particularly great for treating extra-dry skin types, black soap and a sublime moisturising oil made from cold pressed coconut oil.
Liha's community is deeply rooted in Yoruba culture and spreads throughout the world to share the power of Asé, wellness, slow-living and self care. All Liha's packaging and materials are made, designed and produced in the UK - recyclable and reusable.
“We think the idea that you can use what’s in your kitchen and improvise with your routine is very African, while the use of plant essences comes from a British tradition".
Each of the Asé natural 13ml rollerball in Liha's new collection is named after a Yoruba Goddess from the Pantheon of Orishas. All are made up of a Marula oil base, and unique blends of pure organic essential oils that reflect the properties of three of the goddesses. Take some time out of your day to go inward.
Liha Beauty's Idan Oil is made with natural, cold-pressed coconut oil into which a Tuberose flower has been immersed, by a traditional and magic African process of enfleurage. The result is a natural oil with a charming floral scent and warming and aphrodisiac qualitiest hat nourishes intensely both body and hair. It smells divine.
