ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Hi There, I’m Adwoa, an Actress and Qualified facialist born in London and raised both here and in Ghana.

I’ve been formulating Skin Care and Wellbeing products for over five years. At the time I was overworked, stressed out, fatigued and severely unfulfilled. 

I was using expensive skin care products and noticed my skin texture would actually change to accommodate said products! Eventually, I developed a reaction to a high end product which prompted me to start researching the ingredients I was using. Needless to say I was horrified by the hazardous chemicals and fillers in most high end and high street products and the long term side effects. 

My mother suggested I opt for using Nkuto (Akan for Shea butter) and natural Ghanaian oils as she was still using, as her mother - a former beauty queen had used and as her grandmother had also used.

I’ve never looked back. My skin is the best it’s ever been and I started getting requests to formulate oils for friends, then their friends and thus DWIRA was born. In addition, I developed healthy self care habits to take care of my inner being and body. I preach Holistic Wellbeing because your outer body is a direct reflection of your inner soul. Through doing this much needed inner work, prayer and meditation, I realigned with my core values, my dreams, quit my corporate job and pursued my lifelong passions

Beauty is an AURA and Happiness is more than a SMILE, it Radiates from within. I’m excited to welcome you on this journey with me. A journey of reconnecting to your highest possible self, Pursuing your purpose and doing it with Glowing, Radiant Skin. Be the best version of YOU!

In Good Health
