For the entire month of February I’m covering black-owned businesses to celebrate Black History Month. Today I feature RA Cosmetics, “one of the largest wholesale distributors specializing in bringing the natural beauty secrets of West Africa to the world.”
What Is RA Cosmetics?
RA Cosmetics is a cosmetics wholesale company which sells Shea butter and black soap products across the United States. They import their raw ingredients from West Africa, package them, and sell them to retail stores and on their website.
Unlike other cosmetic lines, RA Cosmetics focuses on two product lines 100% African Shea butter and Black Soap. Thus, this allows the company to maintain the integrity and quality of their products.
The company is located in Atlanta, GA and has been in operation for 12 years. I’ve seen their products in Walmart for a couple of years now and I recently bought a tub of their 100% raw Shea butter. I enjoy using Shea butter and use to buy it from Amazon. However, it’s hard to find a quality product there and I sought a local option. That’s when I bought their Shea butter.
Overall, I’m happy with the product although I went through a learning curve. Raw Shea butter is unrefined and has a smoky smell to it. Buying only refined Shea butter in the past, I didn’t know what the raw version was like. Refined Shea butter doesn’t have the smoky smell and is lighter in color. However, after using the raw version I don’t notice the smell anymore.
