Our Story

African Grow n’ Glow is a social enterprise that was founded in the Fall of 2016 by sisters Yark and Joann. 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.


African Grow n' Glow is empowerment-focused. We want to contribute to not only physical growth and glow but also the economic growth and glow of our communities. We believe in giving back, and will continue to source key ingredients from West Africa in order to create economic opportunities for our wholesalers. 


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 promise to continue delivering products made with love and intention. Thank you for supporting our business and vision!
