In episode eight, we talk to Adrienne Hughes-Jackson and Brittany Hughes, founders of Nzuri Body Essentials. What started with a body cream (that has now become their popular Body Souffle) has turned into a luxury brand of organic, handmade skincare products.
Nzuri means ‘beautiful’ in Swahili, and as two African American entrepreneurs, Adrienne and Brittany wanted to create products that would make all of their customers feel beautiful and pampered. In this episode, we discuss the natural ingredients they use in their products, including a rare and expensive African oil called baobab. We also have an honest and real discussion on how Adrienne and Brittany navigate through the skincare space as black women while creating an inclusive space for all their consumers.
