In 2009, Beija-Flor Naturals founder, Stevonne Ratliff suffered from hypo and hyper pigmentation and a number of skin sensitivities. At this time, there were very few natural skincare solutions, especially those that catered to women of color, so she began crafting her own products using amazing healing botanicals that were at the time only found in South America. Ratliff soon incorporated hair products that are unique and nourishing to kinky, coily, dry, and color treated hair.

FEMME NOIRE makes plant powered natural hair and body products infused with chocolate that help women with kinky hair fall in love with their curls. After being ridiculed for losing her hair and her confidence founder Nadja Renise began mixing ingredients in her kitchen as an outlet. Her passion developed into a collection of beauty products created to make women with kinky curly hair look and feel beautiful inside and out. While most products targeted at women with kinky curly hair are linked with cancer causing ingredients we honor the health of our clients. We believe you shouldn't have to compromise health for beauty. That’s why we handpick every ingredient that goes in our products then bottle up the power of Mother Nature to create vegan, sulfate and paraben free products. As always they are handcrafted in small batches with love and a touch of sensuality. We reserve a portion of our profits to contribute to women’s empowerment charities. Connecting with women in deep meaningful ways is what we do. Making a positive impact in the lives of others and giving back to women in need is what we do, together.
