HANDMADE WITH MOTHER’S LOVE
IYOBA started in 1999 as a mother’s journey to heal her son. When her child was diagnosed with eczema, Efiya Asabi, our founder, realized that the artificial ointments prescribed were not improving his skin condition. The chemicals were too harsh.

With determination, knowledge, and recipes inherited from her mother and her grandmother, Efiya began experimenting in her kitchen to find a solution that would soothe his skin.  She created what is now known as her famous artisan soap. As she started seeing results, she also discovered her passion for crafting natural home remedies.

FOUNDER

Hi, I am Efiya Asabi, the founder of IYOBA.

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area as the eldest of two children. My grandmother has been my greatest source of inspiration. Some of my earliest memories are of my grandmother tending to her garden and chickens and working around her yard. I loved spending time with her because she was so kind and loving, and I was fascinated by her ability to create things with her hands. I guess you can say IYOBA is in my DNA.

When I’m not concocting new formulas for our next bestseller, I am working with clients in my Transformational Health Coaching practice. I also enjoy spending time with my family, studying herbalism, hiking, yoga, travel, and good ol’ wholesome fun.
