Afro Unicorn is a brand that empowers Black women and young black girls to embrace who they are – unique, divine, and magical. Founder, April Showers’ social media growth hacking formula for her Afro Unicorn brand has propelled her business into what many believe to be an overnight success. In a recent interview with R&B singer Anthony Hamilton, she explains her ‘why’ behind Afro Unicorn.

“There are a lot of unicorns like me. There are women with multiple businesses and raising their kids so I started using the unicorn emoji a lot, but it bothered me because none of them looked like me,” Showers says. “I wanted to see how I could tie in women empowerment with the different shades of unicorns. I wanted to create something that says, you can. You can step out and not just be pigeonholed into one area.”

Through the Afro Unicorn brand, Showers encourages aspiring, new, and established black women entrepreneurs to be passionate, purposeful, and strategic within their journey of entrepreneurship. Furthermore, she shares her wealth of knowledge so they can also successfully generate multiple streams of income. Afro Unicorn has evolved from a brand to a movement because of its powerful messaging and a grassroots social media strategy that consists of socializing with followers, championing other businesses, and thanking customers.

Their premium soaps, skin creams, and body butter are handmade from the finest all-natural ingredients. Now, more than ever, taking care of yourself and remaining stress-free is a priority.

Nynoka comments, "Women are indeed running the world, wielding political power but also facing unfair burdens during the global pandemic. Some women are working from home while homeschooling children. Others are essential workers. Women across the world are remaining indoors for safety reasons. Pandemic life is different, and everyone has adjusted. However, self-care is not optional."

She continues, "This is not the time to abandon everyday beauty routines. Caring for your skin must be part of a twice-daily ritual, and the right all-over-body products can keep every inch of your skin nourished."  For more info click here | To see the product line click here

  Clear Up Your Blotchy Skin With New Cream Proven To Help Get Rid Of Skin Patches Caused By Tinea Versicolor

Discover how Mizell Mais, a mother of three and entrepreneur, developed a skin creme to overcome blemishes and spots from the fugus that causes Tinea Versicolor. In her early thirties, she developed a spotty rash that covered more than 40% of her body, including her face.

Being dark-skinned, the rash was much lighter than her natural complexion, and the itchy spots were flaky and dry. The rash is called Tinea Versicolor. It's caused by an overgrowth of fungus that naturally occurs on human skin, and is most prevalent in humid or tropical climates.  To learn more about how she created her VanishClear Sulfur Cream to clear up spotty skin caused by Tinea Versicolor Click Here

Throughout the interview, Showers provides viewers with tips about how to engage with potential customers and get influencers and celebrities to promote for free on Instagram. She reinforces the notion that social media is a space to not just be seen but to also be social. “I could not do it without these women [unicorns] around me,” she states. “Bring people in. Don’t be afraid to give your product out. Take a picture. Talk about them. Post them. That’s how I started.”

Viewers should come prepared to take notes because Hamilton and Showers go into detail about how to grow your business on Instagram organically – a struggle for many small business owners.
