SheaMoisture’s new campaign comes naturally

(Four Women by Alexis Eke)

SheaMoisture has just unveiled a bold new brand campaign that proudly celebrates the beauty and resilience of Black women—one of the brands key consumer bases. 

Set against the backdrop of both a global social justice movement and a moment of transformative cultural change, SheaMoisture’s all new “It Comes Naturally” platform was created to convey the essence of Black women in an unapologetic portrayal of a shared experience of resilience and creativity.

Created by BBDO NY and polycultural marketing firm, JOY Collective, “It Comes Naturally” is a forward-looking celebration of Black female culture and identity.

The campaign features the work of six Black female artists – Monica Ahanonu, Rachelle Baker, Bisa Butler, Alexis Eke, Linda Mawala, and Reyna Noriega – who were commissioned to create a distinctive campaign, portrayed in rich illustrations, that brings to life the stories, legacy, and heritage carried by Black women through the generations.

The work amplifies the brand’s groundbreaking pledge to dedicate proceeds from every single purchase as direct investments to Black women entrepreneurs.

It is the first brand work to come from this team since winning SheaMoisture in early 2020. The work was created by a dynamic team of Black and multicultural writers, artists, editors, and music composers—see below for full credit details.
