About Us

African Body Works is an all-natural, handcrafted personal care line formulated by scientist to repair, soothe, protect, and moisturize. We highlight the rich, natural resources found on the continent of Africa that have been used for centuries by our ancestors. African Body Works was created by a Nigerian American chemist and formulated to maximize each ingredient’s effectiveness. African Body Works aims to support and give back to ingenious African people, villages, and businesses.

Christen Igberaese, founder of African Body Works and Head Formulator, is a proud HBCU graduate, mom of two and wife. Her desire to develop and formulate a brand that represents her heritage while celebrating the landscape was the inspiration behind African Body Works. Learning more about the exotic oils, amazing butters, and age-old techniques of our lineage has also created a deeper bond to African culture that has been very gratifying to share through our product line.

All our products are free of parabens, sulfates, and fragrances. We believe in using ingredients in its purest form, unrefined. Everything is handcrafted in small batches with the best, responsibly sourced, ingredients to ensure the highest quality. We ensure our suppliers are following fair trade practices by working with local villages to supply our ingredients which are imported from countries all over the great continent of Africa.
