What is Black Lavish Essentials, LLC?

Black Lavish Essentials is a natural cosmetic and beauty brand inspired by the use of essential oils and raw shea butter made in Ghana.  Our mission is to create a platform for natural skin and hair products that give you the elegance you want and need from your everyday routine.


Our raw shea butter comes from the shea tree nut. In Ghana, it is converted to an oil, solidified into shea butter, and finally made into the final products by us. Black Lavish Essentials products are made by hand to develop a quality hair and skin brand. 


We want our customers to ultimately take on a self care lifestyle and enjoy taking the time to appreciate their own body, skin, and hair.
