About ILERA Apothecary

ILERA Apothecary is on a mission to create the healthiest and most beautiful skin of our time. We are plant-based skincare experts with a focus on quality, ethics, and community. Our products are handcrafted in small batches using the finest ingredients sourced from around the world. We believe that when we come together as a community and support one another, we can make an impact that goes beyond ourselves. Visit us online or in person for the best selection of plant-based skincare, wellness events, curated pop-ups, and community building.

We are a Detroit-based, woman-owned business that specializes in natural skin care products. Our team strives to keep West African practices and philosophies alive through delivering you sustainable ingredients naturally found in the Earth. The majority of our product line includes “Okwuma”, the Igbo term for Shea Butter, a natural plant grown in the Shea Belt of Africa. We are committed to providing our customers with high-quality products and exceptional service.

We are partnered with the Global Shea Alliance, which works to improve the livelihoods of rural African women who process shea through preserving land, instating fair labor practices, and eliminating trade barriers. Our products are made with immense consideration for those who cultivate and harvest our ingredients, as well as for the environment. We hope to create a sustainable future for all.
