Our Story

African Grow n’ Glow is a social enterprise that was founded in the Fall of 2016 by sisters Yark and Joann Beyan. This hair and skincare company was created to address deficiencies in the beauty industry which continues to under-serve people of color. All African Grow n’ Glow products are made with all-natural ingredients, we have a zero chemical policy! The key ingredient in many of our products, African Shea Butter, is ethically sourced from West Africa.


The goal of African Grow n’ Glow is not only to contribute to physical growth and glow but to also help stimulate the mental growth and glow of our communities. We believe in giving back, and that is why a percentage of all profits are put into a fund for economic development initiatives in West Africa.


Our ultimate goal is to employ women in West Africa and help give individuals the confidence and skills needed to take charge of their futures.


We take this glowing thing seriously… to walk you must crawl… to glow you must grow!
