Founded in 2015 by Nneji & Chinonye Akunne for people with dry skin due to aging, eczema and the environment who want to feel confident in their skin, ILERA Apothecary is the key to smooth healthy skin, elimination of scars and prevention of stretch marks using simple ingredients.
ILERA Apothecary was created for people who want the highest quality ingredients for their skin without compromising the environment or their budget. ILERA is committed to making an impact on their customers, employees and local communities. This includes the women who handpick raw materials, their employees who manufacture products, and their customers who have found the solution to reviving their skin with ILERA Apothecary.
The majority of the ILERA Apothecary product line includes “Okwuma”, the Igbo term for Shea Butter. Shea butter is a natural plant grown in the Shea Belt of Africa.
