Christina Funke Tegbe is the founder and visionary behind 54 Thrones. She has created an African luxury beauty brand inspired by the richness of the continent. As a child, Tegbe's Nigerian aunties indulged her. She knew about shea butter benefits for hair and skin from a tender age. The ingenuity and innovation across the motherland also moved her. Thus, she answered the call to share Africa with the world. In 2016, she left a career in corporate consulting to launch her beauty brand. The brand uses only
ingredients ethically sourced and grown on African soil. This luxury beauty collection pays homage to African culture, elegance, and essence. The company sources its shea butter from Ghana and Uganda, baobab oil from Nigeria, and argan oil from Morocco. She also sources marula from South Africa and jasmine and neroli from Egypt. These active botanical ingredients lay the foundation for 54 Thrones' beauty formulas. Finally, a Black-owned beauty brand by a Black woman and made with ingredients from Black-owned sources!
