Apoyo | Papaya with Turmeric and Hibiscus


Treat your face and body with APOYO, our papaya based soap infused with turmeric and rich hibiscus. Apoyo means “pawpaw” in the Luo language.

We blend the seeds, fibers, pulp and peel of fresh organic papaya, then process with quality oils of coconut, shea, rice bran and more under room temperature conditions to preserve its beneficial ingredients. The resulting soap is gentle and nourishing to the skin, with a subtle scent of sweet orange, ginger, geranium and tea tree.

Papaya, turmeric and hibiscus contain beneficial phytonutrients and antioxidants known to improve skin elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and exfoliation to reveal newer vibrant skin.


Saponified Oils of Rice Bran, Olive, Coconut, Castor and Shea; Papaya Fruit, Glycerin, Turmeric Root, Hibiscus Extract, Essential Oils of Sweet Orange, Ginger, Tea Tree

Pronounced ee-bair, “iber” is a statement used to express the meaning “you are beautiful” in the language of the Luo people, a proud Nilotic tribe from East Africa with origins along the River Nile.

When one exclaims “Iber!”, they capture the joy and wonder that natural beauty can inspire. My culture has inspired me to share the knowledge of African beauty with our diaspora.

The ingredients we use honor ancient knowledge passed down from our ancestors. It is our duty to celebrate, educate and connect you closer to the source through 100% handmade, natural African tested ingredients.

I created Iber! Naturals as a way to bring visibility to  Africa’s natural gifts & knowledge in skin and hair care.

After coming to the U.S. in 2008 it was almost impossible to find information and products which worked for my skin and hair. It was disorienting to see the beauty industry mainly catering to hair and skin needs not similar to my own.

After much experimentation, research and consulting friends with similar experiences, I discovered natural oils and butters like lavender, shea butter and Jamaican black castor oil. These products changed my relationship with my body for the better – I have not looked back since!

It is important to share the solutions I have found with others because I know just how much our hair and skin can impact our sense of pride and self-esteem, and wanted to celebrate that our African roots have always had the answers.

My message through this work is that you are already beautiful. The products and information shared is designed to help enhance the natural beauty that already exists within you.
