BONA EXPO 22~ Africa’s First Green Beauty Exhibition Is Happening

Well this is exciting. BONA EXPO 22, the first ever expo dedicated to African green beauty is taking place in Africa at the end of March. Lovely longtime readers might recall that waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2017 in my Top Ten Green Beauty Predictions , I predicted that African Beauty or what is now being called “A-Beauty” would be on the rise. It seems the time is finally now!

Africa’s amazing ingredients, knowledge and resources are such a fundamental part of green beauty. Take a look at the label of your favourite natural and organic products and you’ll be hard pressed to find any that don’t contain African grown ingredients and yet very few African brands or manufacturers are well known. Things are starting to change though, even Vogue is getting in on the African beauty action!

BONA EXPO 22 (Botanical, Organic & Natural Africa Expo) themed ‘Mother Nature Africa’, will be showcasing the best green beauty brands made in Africa, as well as from brands from Africans in the diaspora. Onsite and online, the 2-day eco-friendly event in Lagos, 30 – 31 March 2022 will be a fantastic platform to discover African brands, as well as an opportunity for international clean and green brands seeking to enter the booming African market.

Alongside the exhibition, the programme includes panels, masterclasses with internationally renowned beauty industry speakers including Oyeta Kokoroko, founder, Okoko Cosmetiques. Keynote speakers include Lorraine Dallmeier, CEO of Formula Botanica and Christina Funke Tegbe, founder, 54 Thrones.

I’m planning to attend so make sure you’re following me on Instagram for the inside scoop on the latest and greatest African beauty brands and green beauty scene.
