Founded in 2014 for people with dry skin due to aging, eczema or burns who want to feel confident in their skin, ILERA Apothecary is the key to smooth healthy skin, elimination of scars and prevention of stretch marks using simple ingredients.  
Sisters, Chinonye and Nneji Akunne created ILERA Apothecary to cater to customers who want the highest quality ingredients for their skin without compromising the environment or their budget. Utilizing digital technology, we have created a highly interactive customer experience that includes in-person wellness events, informative blog posts, and curated pop-up shops. We are committed to making an impact on our customers, employees and local communities. This includes the women who handpick raw materials, our employees who manufacture products, and our customers who have found the solution to reviving their skin with ILERA Apothecary.

The majority of the ILERA Apothecary product line includes “Okwuma”, the Igbo term for Shea Butter. Shea butter is a natural plant grown in the Shea Belt of Africa. This simple  ingredient has been used in our family for many generations, keeping our ancestors skin soft, vibrant and youthful. Each product and scent is formulated in-house by the ILERA Apothecary team.
