SheaMoisture is the legacy of an incredible woman who rose like a phoenix from the ashes. In 1912, Sofi Tucker a 19-year old widowed mother of 4 began selling Shea butter at a village market in Sierra Leone. Little did she know, that her homemade hair and skin preparations will become a global brand paving ‘a better way to beautiful’ for women and their families everywhere. SheaMoisture is Sofi Tucker’s legacy carried on by the passion and diligence of her family for four generations.
Nigeria has recently witnessed a boost of entrepreneurial spirit amongst young women. More Nigerian women are breaking glass ceilings with unconventional business ideas despite lack of funds and little or no support.
