Pro Media Mag : What was the inspiration behind launching ‘Body Organics’?
Viola Ogbunude : Body Organics was borne out of necessity… Scratching my own itch. After my first baby, I had bad skin! I tried every product there was then decided to go organic after watching a documentary on how most commercial skincare products are loaded with chemicals with hard to pronounce names.
Months of research led me to retail these organic products and I must say that was one of the best decisions I ever made. The idea behind Body Organics is simply: Healthy and Clear Skin. Whatever your skin tone, it should be healthy.
