A Kenyan native, Mkamboi Mwakale begun this journey accidentally when her 4-year-old daughter kept on being sickly and had to use antibiotics that turned out to be a frustrating cycle of events. She came across Moringa powder after a Nigerian friend urged her to try it on her daughter, something that was a turning point in her life. The Moringa powder turned out to be an excellent solution to her health concerns and she was curious to find out more about her new-found discovery. However, a visit to her upcountry home in Taita Hills made Mkamboi realize something else altogether; the farmers from Taita had grown the Moringa Oleifera tree in plenty but they were yet to experience the economic benefit from the tree. It was this realization that made Mkamboi get into more researching about the entire tree with an aim to create a solution to the Moringa farmers from her home. Coincidentally she had a unit that required her to come up with a social enterprise project as part of her MBA course work requirements and things just fell neatly into place as she used the opportunity to identify a solution. Her attention was particularly caught with the content and properties of Moringa seed that produced such a high-profile oil. It was at this realization that she explored the idea of using Moringa oil to solve some of the pain points ethnic hair experienced and with her dedication to a healthy life growing in her personal life, she began to realize the perils posed by inhaling and handling harsh chemicals. She then sought and committed to create value addition to Moringa Oil by creating a toxin-free hair products and went ahead to incorporate only organic ingredients in her formulations.
She also began extensive research and testing of essential oils, plant extracts and other botanical ingredients to produce her first organic haircare product the Revitalizing Clay Cleansing Shampoo that has been a pioneer in the market and a darling to her customers who love the beautiful experience of soft, conditioned moisturized hair they get after a hair wash. Her pioneering product is her very first innovative solution that applied design thinking while creating the product. She wanted a sulfate free shampoo but one that worked for ethnic hair that easily gets knots and tangles and can be a mess. The clay shampoo is also great enough for kids leaving kids hair cleansed and soft to manage. Mkamboi is dedicated to creating professional quality performance products crafted with care and respect for the mother nature. She dreams to create a blossoming full line of incomparable hair, skin, and body products for the entire family.
