My name is: Ozohu Adoh.
I’m known for being: CEO/founder, Epara.
I'm talking about: Epara, a natural skincare line made with the best African botanicals.
You can find it at: eparaskincare.com.
Before I created this line, I was: A strategist in the oil and gas industry.
What inspired me to launch it was: An undiagnosed skin condition (which later turned out to be follicular eczema), which I struggled to find solutions for in existing products in the market, at the time.
How it works is: Epara uses the goodness of the highest quality, pure African botanicals and active ingredients to address dryness and hyperpigmentation.
What makes it special is: Our approach to hyperpigmentation is targeted, addressing only the cells in which hyperpigmentation has occurred, without altering the basal (natural) skin tone in unaffected areas.
My favorite secret detail is: I love to inhale the scent of the Brightening Night Balm after warming in my fingers to activate the scent, before applying to my face. The mixture of sandalwood, frankincense and neroli is extraordinarily soothing and relaxing.
For me, “clean” or “conscious” beauty means: A product that minimizes or eliminates synthetic chemicals/materials in its formulation.
One ritual you can practice with this line is: Using the Hydrating Mist as a tonic to prep your skin before applying the Brightening Night Balm will turbocharge the recovery process whilst you sleep.
It can help you live your process because: It is uncomplicated, but highly effective.
