Obia Ewah is a trained chemist. Obia has bachelor degrees in both Chemistry and Biology, as well as a master’s degree in Public Health. Obia is also a member of theSociety of Cosmetic Chemists and attends seminars and meetings regularly, always seeking new information to help our customers achieve healthy hair.
During her third year of medical school, Obia got sick and as a result, she became extremely cautious about the foods and products she allowed into her body.
Obia decided to go natural and improve her health. When she did the “big chop” in 2010, Obia couldn’t find any hair products that could both tame her thick hair and health-conscious ingredients.
Obia began tinkering with her own formulations for hair products as a hobby. To her surprise, the concoctions that Obia originally created for her hair alone, worked great for others also! Obia joined forces with her younger brother, Omini Ewah, and began developing and shaping the OBIA brand and message. Friends began to ask for and purchase Obia’s formulations and that is how OBIA Naturals was started. The company officially launched in 2012.
We are proud of her achievement and we name her Most Influential 100 Class of 2018 Business and Entrepreneurship category.
