Epara means "to cocoon oneself" in the Nigerian dialect of Ebira. It is a collection of handcrafted skincare products tailored to the underserved needs of women of color. Founder and CEO Ozohu Adoh’s quest to discover luxury skincare that caters to the unique issues affecting women of color—dryness and discoloration caused by the sun, free radicals and air pollution—led to a bespoke beauty brand created especially to nourish and protect.
“I love that Epara has been formulated specifically for women of color using, as its founder Ozohu says, African ingredients for African skins, and that it has found an audience all over the world. The Brightening Night Balm in particular has the MOST silky, sophisticated texture.” - Jamie Rosen, Wellbeing Editor
