Liha founders Liha Okunniwa and Abi Oyepitan have developed a small range of what are some of our must-have products. Summing up the rich history of cultures that is at the heart of Britain today, Liha combines elements of both the diverse landscape, and the cultural history of Britain. Inspired by their heritage and traditional techniques, this range of body essentials blends urban and rural with African roots and a quintessentially British attitude.
Africa holds many beauty secrets and remedies which have been proven over centuries of use, from the moisturising power of raw shea butter to recipes for extracting flower essence into coconut oils. In the Yoruba tradition, making oils, soaps and lotions from the nuts, tree bark and plants is a skill that was traditionally learned by all young women. These recipes have been reworked over time but always rely on the natural bases that form the Liha range - Coconut Oil and Shea Butter.
