About Rachael Corson and Afrocenchix

Afrocenchix exists to put your health first in haircare. We have sustainability and ethics at our heart and this means people and the planet come before profit.

At Afrocenchix we believe the little things in life should be simple. We blend safe, effective, vegan ingredients with expertise to make hair care as simple as possible. Our Black-owned hair care business is run by people that understand and care about those with Afro, tightly coiled and curly hair, but the products are created to work on all hair types!

What makes our products so effective? Well, our in house cosmetic chemists work hard to formulate high quality products, and we run dozens of trials and tests before launch. We manufacture in the UK, mostly in house, so we have tight controls over quality.

I’m allergic to everything, so we’re careful to make sure our products are free from common allergens including SLS, parfum and other artificial fragrances. We’re extra committed to ensuring everything is safe and effective because our families use the products too. You can trust that each bottle is filled with goodness and will do exactly what it says.

We believe businesses can be ethical and sustainable whilst serving community needs with excellence. Our products are certified vegan and never tested on animals. We use environmentally friendly preservatives and our raw materials are ethically sourced including organic, fair trade Shea butter from a cooperative in Ghana. We believe encouraging sustainability means farmers should be paid fairly and ingredients should be sourced ethically.

We believe taking care of the environment is just as important as taking care of your hair, so our packaging is 100% recyclable and we use organic ingredients wherever possible. Our postal boxes and filling nuts are plant based and 100% compostable too! We’re working towards Fair Trade certification and aiming to become a B Corp by 2024. When you buy from us, you’re supporting this vision.

Running our multi-award winning business in line with our principles helps us to deliver top quality, safe, effective products that work for your hair without harming the planet.
We believe the little things in life should be simple, because it’s the little things in life that make a big difference.
