OWNER OF THEBLACBOX Nigerian born, British raised, Abi has been living in Denmark since 2017. Having a background in Law, Primary Education and Sales & M a r ke t i n g . S h e is currently Head of Growth for a small startup in Copenhagen. "After moving to Copenhagen, I was surprised at the lack of variety in stores for black women. Over the last couple of years, brands have become much more inclusive with their product ranges, but those products never seemed to populate the shelves in physical stores in Denmark. I was constantly buying full-sized products (and paying for international shipping) without even knowing if products would suit me. So I created the BlacBox a wallet-friendly and hassle-free way to try different products tailored to your profile'. theBlacBox is a bi-monthly subscription box for black women in Europe. All products are sourced from black-owned businesses around the world and tailor-made to every subscriber based on their hair type, skin type and skin tone. Every other month, you’ll receive 2 products for skin care, 2 products for hair care and 2 products that match your skin tone. Each BlacBox has a minimum total price of 950DKK, which you can subscribe to for 350DKK, shipping included.
