Obia Ewah, is a trained chemist, the founder and formulator of OBIA Naturals.
OBIA Naturals produces pH balanced, vegan and non-toxic natural hair and body care products fortified with natural ingredients.
Months to her graduation from medical school, Obia was diagnosed with cancer, which she believes had something to do with the chemicals she used to relax her hair.
After surviving cancer, Obia became very careful about the foods and products she allowed into her body. She also went natural to improve her health.
When she started her natural hair journey in 2010, Obia couldn’t find any hair products that could both tame her thick hair and health-conscious ingredients, she began some DIYs using natural ingredients.
Surprisingly, the mixture that Obia originally created for her hair alone, worked great for others also! Friends began to ask for and purchase Obia’s formulations and that is how OBIA Naturals was started. The company officially launched in 2012.
OBIA Naturals boasts that their products do not contain any toxins or carcinogens.
