I Have Been in Business for Years Clothing and 2009 I moved to Hair Business.
2013 Daolu’s Natural Products Was Born Because I really wanted People to Find a Haven in Our Hectic World Where They Could Shop in Peace For Raw Unrefined Natural Products.
DAOLU’S PRODUCTS was launched to provide people with all Natural Products that do amazing things for their skin and hair and at the same time to provide the women who make the Shea Butter with a Fair Price for their products and support to help them and their families to climb out of poverty.
Shea butter production is a difficult and laborious task and often the women do not get a fair reward for their hard work.
At DAOLUS PRODUCTS We Adhere to Fair Trade values and principles so by buying from us you are helping to Empower these Women.
The business was founded by OLUKEMI OMOTAYO ASALU who grew up in Nigeria but over the Years has Travelled Far and Wide, as far as Europe, Germany, United States of America, Dubai and other African Countries: Ghana and Kenya.
Olukemi Believes traveling is part of Education, when you tour the World, you get more exposures about Life and great Business ideas.
Olukemi fervently believes that Business can be a force for good and that doing business right means that everyone benefits; the Women who make the Shea Butter, the Natural Environment, the people who buy and use the Product, the Distributors and Retailers of the product and the Workers and Shareholders of DAOLUS PRODUCTS.
Over the years she became Impassioned with the need to share Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, African Black Soap, Natural Powders like Camwood with the world in a way that would benefit everyone, especially the women Who made the Butter, Oil, Soap and the people who would use the products.
Working from her kitchen, Olukemi also continued to combine Shea Butter with high-quality essential Oils and other natural materials to make special products for friends and family, Olukemi never knew a lot of people out there are seriously looking for these Products.
A lady Sent me a message Via Whatsapp She said: “I want to Buy Shea Butter and African Black Soap Tshepiso Tsele gave me your Contact number”. So I said to her “Okay, Tshepiso is My very good Friend, Quickly I called Tshepiso a lady by name Thandeka just told me you gave her my contacts that am selling Shea Butter and African Black Soap But you Know I don’t sell”, her response to me was “With you Kemi, there is nothing you can’t sell. I know you will get it for her that was why I gave her your number”
After the phone conversation with Tshepiso, I replied the lady “please forgive me but I’m out of stock and how much do you buy this two products from your previous suppliers because is been a while I don’t have stock so I don’t know the market price”. She told me the price, while still chatting with her I called my Mum and asked her how much is Shea Butter and African Black Soap in Nigeria, She told me and I Converted it to Rands plus Shipping, Custom Clearing and all expenses then I brought down my own price by 10% off her previous supplier Price. We sealed the Business Deal. Fortunately for me, I got someone coming to South Africa from Nigeria I told my Mom to help out with the Shea Butter and African Black Soap from the women extracting the Shea Nut and making Black soap as well.
The two Products arrived and Thandeka purchased as ordered. I was left with some Shea Butter and African Black Soap, then I started thinking what to do with the remaining ones. Something just says to me why don’t you Market on Gumtree and Olx, I did and on that day I got more than 30 phone calls and Emails including Sms and Whatsapp from all over South Africa.
That is when I told myself where have I been that I didn’t know a lot of people in South Africa needed these Products. Later on, calls started coming in from outside South Africa, as far as Europe, Asia and the United States of America. The people who used my products kept telling me amazing stories about what they had done for them. Stories about Soothing Dry, Stretch Marks, Cracked and Bleeding Skin, Saving Savaged Lips and Healing Bedsores became common place.
It seemed like everyone was telling me that a product this good, and that could provide so much help to West African women, should be marketed more broadly. After talking it over, I decided to create another business that develops and markets Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, African Black Soap and Jamaican Black Castor Oil, different types of Butters, Carrier Oils, Essential Oils and Other Natural Products Like Camwood Powder, Neem Powder etc.
