The mission of OBIA Naturals is to produce pH balanced, vegan and non-toxic natural hair and body care products fortified with natural ingredients.
OBIA Naturals is focused on producing vegan, pH balanced, non-toxic hair and body care products that offer a natural alternative to conscientious consumers. The OBIA Naturals journey began in 2012, when Obia Ewah decided to use her dual bachelor’s degree in both Chemistry and Biology to start a hair and skin care line that addressed her sensitive skin needs. On the path to becoming a doctor, it was during Obia’s 3rd year of medical school when she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. As a part of her quest to live a healthier lifestyle, Obia decided to shed her relaxed tresses for her naturally tightly coiled texture. Known as the “Big Chop,” Obia’s newly embraced coif left her needing the right combination of products to tame her thick hair without jeopardizing her overall health with toxins. A former chemist for private label cosmetic manufacturing companies, Obia recognized the void in the market and began tinkering with her own formulas that used the natural ingredients that she had spent years studying about during her days at the University of North Texas. In just 8 years, what started out as botanical blends for friends and family has blossomed into a global business of pH Balanced, herbal based vegan products that do not contain: mineral oil, sulfates, petroleum, alcohol, silicones, honey, beeswax, goat’s milk or any animal protein. Being a member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists enables Obia to attend seminars regularly to stay on the pulse of the latest beauty industry studies and research. Using science based technology, OBIA Naturals products have developed an award winning reputation for high quality formulations that are composed of easily absorbed natural humectants that nourish all hair textures and skin types.
