Solomon’s Daughter is an eco-ethical company that craft a growing range of Organic Beauty Products. They are based in London but consider themselves an International brand of African origin due to their use of a Shea Butter base in each of their products – known to be rich in Vitamin E, promoting healthy hair and skin – which is of course ethically sourced in West Africa.
Helen Stenning, Public Relations Executive for the brand says: “Here at Solomon’s Daughter we believe that beauty shouldn’t cost the earth, hence we are conscious to keep our packaging to a minimum. Furthermore we ensure that all of our packaging is 100% recyclable. Although a relatively young company, all of our products are individually hand-crafted to a high standard.”
The company have enjoyed high success as they were recently featured in the October issue of Vogue as part of ‘Vogue’s Natural Selection’ – a prestigious achievement to date.
Founded by the Nigerian born Londoner (and Solomon’s Daughter) Kathryn Onomakpome, the company has a solid foundation. Kathryn has a strong background in the creative industry having established herself as an artist and trained as an Architect in the UK. Based in London she aims to showcase Solomon’s Daughter as a high quality product of African origin.
This December Solomon’s Daughter is opening up to the West African market starting in Lagos, Nigeria. They are presently finalising arrangements to stock their line with leading beauty retailers -one of which is BM Pro owned by renowned make-up artist Banke Meshida Lawal.
