Our Beauty Philosophy

Real beauty is an energy that you put out into the world, the way that you treat yourself can have a directly positive or negative impact on how you view and interact with the world. This is why it's important to treat yourself with kindness and repeat and affirm messages of love to yourself. When we take time for ourselves, we are feeding positivity into our consciousness that tells us we are worth effort, energy and love. We are taking time to replenish reserves that can easily be depleted through everyday challenges. Simple realisations like this can be profoundly energising bringing about a sense of wellness, uplift and balance. It's ok to take down time, be creative and indulge ourselves in the things that we love. You are your most beautiful self when you are happy and comfortable with who you are.


Our Ingredients

As lovers of all things natural and organic. We like our beauty to be clean and green. So we make the extra effort to ensure that the ingredients we use are the purest and most natural we can find. We source the finest quality sustainable ingredients that are grown, harvested and cold-pressed right here in the UK, as well as certified organic and Fairtrade natural ingredients from a little further afield. We are always looking at ways to become more sustainable, this plays a big factor in why we choose British, however at this stage the UK cannot provide every ingredient we need. So we make sure that we source our non UK ingredients responsibly and as geographically close to home as possible. We avoid synthetic ingredients in favor of honest and healthy ingredients that won't negatively impact our health or our environment.


Who's it for?

We specialise in providing high quality green beauty options to meet the unique needs of afro textured hair in all its forms as well as skincare that addresses some of the concerns that come with having melanin rich skin. This way we are able to offer a more tailored beauty experience, working to create highly effective products that deal more directly with common issues that are often unique to our skin and hair. That being said, our products are all natural and full of wonderful healthy ingredients that everyone can benefit from.

  • "Lovely luxurious skin This is brilliant stuff. I usually have good, healthy skin but the Lockdowns have made it suffer and get rather dry in parts. This easy to use beautiful facial oil is worth its weight in gold. Using natural ingredients, it has a pretty much instantaneous impact after being kneaded lovingly into one’s skin, making it feel softer, more luxurious and more even in tone. Great."

  • "First oil that worked for my skin I have tried many different oils in the past and they all ended up breaking me out, but this one has been so gentle to my sensitive skin and it has actually helped my acne heal! I use a light moisturising cream underneath it for extra hydration."

  • " The Way Forward for Me and the Planet I love how quickly this unassuming solid shampoo bar lathers up and how easily the suds rinse out. Moreover the bar didn’t break or crumble and my curls now feels soft, glossy and bouncy. My scalp too feels refreshed and ‘zingy.’ The Afro Hair and Beauty Company have produced a fantastic solid shampoo bar which is not only good for my hair but the planet too. I’m convinced bars last longer than their liquid counterparts and with zero plastic waste."

  • "Oil of Wonder I bought this 'Omega Healthy Hair Oil' as I had been looking for one that penetrates into the follicles of my hair. I am happy to say this little bottle of wonder, lovingly does the job without being oily and heavy. It also smells great!"
