Our Bojolar Story
''Bojolar'' is synonymous with Bunmi, the founder and CEO of Bojolar Natural Skincare. The nickname was derived from nostalgic Nigerian roots and childhood memories in the bustling city of Lagos.
Bunmi fondly recalls her mother applying vast amount of sheabutter to her skin and hair scalp to soften and protect the skin daily. (As far as her mother was concerned, sheabutter was useful for pretty much everything!)
Sheabutter (aka African gold) is well known and used in African settings in its purest and unrefined form. Now residing in the UK, Bunmi, a research scientist, was inspired by the Science of African Sheabutter to create her own line of natural skincare due to a lack of readily available pure and natural sheabutter products in mainstream departmental stores, unlike what was readily available in African settings. She observed that the mainstream shea butter had been chemically refined, most likely been stripped of its natural goodness and not as effective and with minimal visible results!
Pure Sheabutter is scientifically proven (https://bojolarskincare.com/pages/the-science-of-shea-butter) to have antioxidant and anti -inflammatory properties, essential fatty acids and Vitamin E content for protecting, soothing, healing and moisturising the skin.
Our aim at Bojolar Natural Skincare is to create effective and natural skincare, that show visible result when applied to the skin. We source all our sheabutter directly from ethical sources of shea butter in the West African region, and hand make all of our skincare products in the North East of England, in small batches to ensure quality, accessibility and nourishment to all skin types.
