Souda is an African-Canadian girl who grew up in Toronto. She has always been a motherland advocate and proud to be a Canadian – Somali girl with a beautiful history including stories and beauty knowledge about products her mother and grandmother use. So with her mother and sister, she started a company called African Nature.
African Nature is a natural skin and haircare body line where the main ingredients are plants and herbs from all over Africa.
I had a chance to speak with Souda about what led her to start her family business:
“We started African Nature in 2012 with the present name and concept. My mom was using these products as a kid and stopped when she came to Canada as a teenager. Once life’s stresses and school hit her, her skin got dull, her hair started to fall out and she got major adult acne. She started using a bunch of over the counter remedies and barely any of them worked. So she decided to use what her mom and generations of our family used… natural, simple oils and herbs for masks… and the rest was history.”
With an ever expanding product line I asked for her top recommendations for new customers. For hair strengthening and growth, she recommends the 7 oil hair treatment and for skin issues such as eczema, acne and sensitivity she recommends the black seed soap.
