Hibiscus or rosella leaves are great skin purifiers and make great toners. In our quest to create moisturizing and purifying products for the face, we turned to these leaves which grow locally in Nigeria. The beauty of hibiscus or rosella leaves is that the juice can be extracted and used as either toner or lotion or the leaves can be used in making soap and other skincare products.
When washed and boiled, the juice is dark purple and stains which is why it makes great natural colorant for skincare products.
We used the leaves in formulating our new face washes which are created with other extracts like frankincense, Rose, turmeric and much more.
Our Clarifying acne wash was made with hibiscus leaves and juice amongst other natural ingredients like witch hazel, turmeric, rose extract and frankincense to clear the skin of blemishes.
The Natural Radiance Toner is made with hibiscus juice amongst other ingredients.
We improved on our Oil Free Mist and Toner by inculcating hibiscus juice in it.
Both face creams are made from hibiscus juice amongst other ingredients.
Our products are wholly natural and contain no artificial ingredient. To buy any of these products, please visit our store.
We are excited and gearing up for the Discount Festive Sales which will be taking place on November 23rd to 25th, 2018 at the Atlantic Center on Chevron drive in Lekki, Lagos. Ene Naturals will be displaying all our products and there would be sample products and discounts to be given out during the pop- up event.
So, if you are within the environment, you are most welcomed! We are also receiving pre-orders for clients who would love to pick up their products at the event.
With our body shedding up to 500 million dead cells a day, you can imagine the amount of dirt that is pushed to the surface of the skin and left abandoned there without being thoroughly washed away. Because our body is constantly producing new cells, it pushes the older, dead cells to the surface which clogs our pores and cause such damages like pimples, breakouts, rash, dark skin and uneven skin tone.
The solution to a brighter, clearer, glowing skin is exfoliation. This is why at Ene Naturals, we have created all natural exfoliators that not only get rid of dead cells but gives the skin the much needed glow and nourishment a healthy skin should possess.
Instagram has made direct selling so easy and appealing that the bulk of our orders are coming in from that direction. Because social media affords the Customer a direct line of communication with producers and creators of products, they are taking advantage of these opportunities and choosing the option of product customization to meet their special needs.
So all through the months of August and September, our top selling products have been Ene Naturals Brightening Goat milk lotion and Ene Naturals Brightening Goat milk Soap with African Black Soap. These products work hand-in-hand in giving the skin a brighter, blemish-free, even skin tone. We are excited that customers are benefiting from the AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) present in goat milk and all the highly nutrient-rich qualities of goat milk which is present in our lotion and African Black soap. You can use this product combo to revamp dull complexion and to give your skin a youthful and glowing skin.

We at Ene Naturals are pleased to inform that our moisturizing scrub is now rebranded as Clarifying Scrub. In our commitment to making high quality natural products, we have included cocoa powder and vanilla extract in our clarifying and purifying scrub to improve on the previous product’s exfoliating power.
This new clarifying scrub contains cocoa powder which is rich in collagen, antioxidants and vitamins to nourish the skin, fight wrinkles and is great for a healthy skin. Vanilla on its own is also rich in antioxidants while its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacteria property means that it protects the skin from infection. Both cocoa powder and vanilla are great for protecting the skin.
We have retained our previous ingredients which includes brown sugar, Dead Sea salt, turmeric, African Sandalwood, lemon oil, orange oil, coconut oil and glycerin.
With the new Ene Naturals Clarifying Scrub, your skin benefits in so many ways as this product exfoliates, purifies, protects, brighten and moisturize the skin for a clearer, brighter and younger you.
Here is a peek into the process of making this all natural clarifying scrub:

So we create and stock a wide variety of natural skincare products for all different skin types and skin concerns; but we are heavily bespoke because the process of interacting with clients through free consultation and customizing unique products tailored to a client’s individual needs have actually helped us grow and expand pretty fast. Every client wants to be given that personal touch that is lacking in our fast-paced markets and especially in the area of skincare where clients have different skin types and skin concerns like allergies and what is tolerable.
Our bespoke natural skincare services begin with free consultation which allows us to gather information about the client’s past skincare regime, allergies if any and much more. At the end of the consultation, either we recommend one of our generic products or we customize. What I personally find interesting is that clients want the best for their skin and are happy when you meet their satisfaction.
Customizing skincare products sometimes can involve tweaking the ingredients in a generic product to suit the individual needs of a client or to create a brand new product entirely. Sometimes it is about changing the texture and packaging of our products. Take this one below for an example:
This product originally is a lotion in a jar and while the client loved the goodness that this product provides, she does not like lotions. So she had us change the texture from a light weight lotion to a much thicker cream in a tub.
Similarly, these two above have been tweaked as well. The Collagen+ Lightening anti aging soap originally comes in a tub and is made with goat milk while the cream is usually packaged in a smaller tub and made with goat milk as well. For this client, we switched the goat milk for pure coconut milk, changed some ingredients; packaged the soap in a 500ml jar rather than a 250ml tub while the cream was packaged in a 250ml tub rather than in a 100ml tub.
Bespoke services can be challenging but very exciting and positively challenging because your goal is a happy customer.
At Ene Naturals, customer satisfaction is our ultimate goal so if you want our bespoke services, contact us today for free consultation.
Since I began my organic skincare business, I have always relied on customers for inspiration, ideas and suggestions. In fact, no business can be successful without putting the customer first. This is why at Ene Naturals, the customer is a co- creator. So I developed two moisturizing products – Ene Naturals Moisturizing black soap and Ene Naturals Brightening goatmilk lotion for the skin that needs deep moisturizing.
I was pleased with the products as they were received well.
So my original formulation includes: raw African black soap, shea butter, rosemary oil, aqua, jasmine oil, turmeric, coconut milk, Glycerine, vitamin E, lavender, orange oil, lemon oil and citric acid. And then I got a client who wanted a moisturizing liquid black soap that lightens as well as fight wrinkles so I had to tweak the product a bit by including collagen, retinol, goatmilk and kojic acid. Thus a new custom line was created – Custom M – I like to call it. My client also had me customizing my goatmilk lotion as well.
The original formulation contained raw goatmilk, aqua, coconut oil, lemon oil, orange oil, jasmine oil, carrot oil, vitamin E, Glycerine, collagen, retinol, turmeric and citric acid. In tweaking this for my client, I created a deep moisturizer that brightens one’s complexion and fights wrinkles.
I was pleased to create the Custom M range which can now be ordered by people with similar taste.
This shows that flexibility is very vital in businesses and to position one’s business for growth, one must be ope to the customer’s needs and put them at the forefront.
As a business owner, is there any way you’ve learnt something from your client? Pls do share!
I recently changed my business name, blogging name, including blog address and social handles from Bronzegoddess NG to ENE Naturals as part of rebranding my business and my personality. I am now a full fledged organic skincare formulator and while my makeup services remain the same, my beauty therapy services are now completely natural.
I am an ardent advocate of all things natural, including natural medicines so by adopting my new name, I am expressing appropriately who I really am and what my beliefs are.
Though the name has changed, the contents of this blog and what I represent remains the same. You will still receive posts on makeup, skincare and hair; but I will be including more interesting posts on organic skincare and all things natural.
Thank you for letting me be a part of you all these years.
