Tell us about yourself

Herbal Goodness was born in 2013 when I was pregnant. Being raised eating fresh organic papayas daily just off the trees in my native country, Nigeria, I was surprised to discover the radical differences in taste and nutritional content between the wild-grown organic Papaya I grew up with and the GMO papaya varieties abundant in stores in the U.S.A. This was when I decided to source and provide the best quality products, starting with Papaya and, over the years, expanding into other unique nutrient-dense superfoods.

What I do is driven mainly by Impact. I strongly desire to impact my community's health and well-being and make an impact on social good. I am a firm believer in leaving a mark and having an effect. I am glad to say that I have been hitting that mark in both the wellness sector with Herbal Goodness and the education sector with the WAAW foundation (10% of our profit goes to the education of the Girl-child in STEM courses in Africa through the WAAW foundation).
