Hey Shuga! Welcome to Shuga & Shea!

Meet Nia B., a proud Jersey Girl who is also the founder and Commander-in-Chic of Shuga & Shea, a successful black-owned skincare company. She grew up in the inner-city of Paterson, New Jersey with an eclectic dream of one day starting her own business. With a passion for creating something of her own, Nia moved to Washington, DC in 2002 after attending Hampton University with dreams of creating something that would make a positive impact in her community. After years of struggling to find skincare products that worked for her skin type, Nia decided to take matters into her own hands. With a passion for natural and organic ingredients, she started experimenting with different formulations and soon discovered a winning combination that left her skin looking and feeling better than ever.

Determined to share her discoveries with others, Nia created Shuga & Shea, along with team of kick-ass skincare enthusiasts who wanted to create a brand that was dedicated to providing natural and sustainable solutions for all skin types. . She focused on creating products that were both effective and affordable, using only the best natural and organic ingredients. Despite facing many challenges as a black female entrepreneur in a highly competitive industry, Nia never gave up. She worked tirelessly to build her business, attending trade shows, networking with other entrepreneurs, and spreading the word about her products through social media. Today, Nia's dedication to natural, sustainable, and inclusive skincare has made her a beloved figure in the community.

Through it all, Nia remains true to her roots as a Jersey girl, and her love for her hometown and its people is evident in everything she does. She is an inspiration to all who aspire to turn their dreams into reality, and a testament to the power of hard work, determination, and passion - "At Shuga & Shea we believe that taking care of your skin should be a holistic experience.
