We are so thrilled to be sharing Liha Beauty’s best selling Idan Oil. Made with natural, cold-pressed coconut oil a Tuberose flower has been immersed, infusing this wonderful scent into the oil. Tip:Use Idan Oil as a daily body oil, or a leave in conditioner. If you’re feeling really indulgent, slather on head to toe before bed and rinse off in the morning for truly silky fragranced skin.
Liha Beauty is part of our Black Makers Edit, a curated collection of products from some of our favourite black-owned brands and artisans that we think our customers will love as much as we do.
So how does it work we hear you ask...?
1. When you buy Liha Beauty’s Idan Oil from the Black Makers Edit, 100% of the sale price goes directly to Liha.
2. Not only that, every time an item is sold from the Edit, we donate £5 to our Black Makers Fund. The makers have each selected a charity for this fund to split amongst. Liha Beauty has chosen New Initiatives Youth & Community Association, a charity that ensures our society is constantly enriched with young adults who are proud of their rich heritage and prepared for living productive lives.
3. When you shop, you will also have the option to make an additional donation to the Black Makers Fund.
Liha and Abi met at university in 1998 and instantly bonded over their love of natural skin and hair care products. Mixing up lotions and oils using ingredients from Nigeria, Liha was born with the beauty bug. In the Yoruba (Nigerian) tradition making beautifying oils, soaps, and lotions from the nuts, tree bark and plants that grew in abundance was a skill that was traditionally learned by all young women.

Fast forward a few years, two gorgeous children, a career in art publishing (Liha) and a professional athletics career (Abi) they decided it was time to follow their hearts and launch their own selection of natural beauty products. A modest offering to start, at the core of all Liha Beauty’s products is a need for them to be multi-purpose. Products you can use all over your hair and body, and even mix together.
“As a sustainable brand, we are big advocates of ‘buying less, buying well’ and believe that minimalism should be applied to beauty.”
