Founded by Christina Funke Tegbe, 54 Thrones is a clean beauty brand handcrafted to celebrate the richness, diversity and cultures of the African continent and its people. Inspired by her own Nigerian heritage, Christina had one goal in mind: to create clean yet decadent skincare products that sustainably honor the rich natural resources of Africa and the authentic beauty rituals that have been handed down from generation to generation.
A southern-American childhood rooted with the cultural essence of Nigeria, Christina grew up experiencing the true and sacred beauty of Africa. Empowered by her Nigerian aunties who would indulge her with tubs of shea butter sent to her through friends and family traveling to the states from Nigeria, she always held those memories close to her heart. She was moved by the ingenuity and innovation across the motherland, and in 2016, 54 Thrones was born.
