About Divine Naturals
Divine Naturals evolved from a simple request received by Divine Naturals founder, Shawnte Herkley received from her mom, Jean Herkley. After reading "Where Beauty Touches Me: Natural Hair Care and Beauty Book", written by Pamela Ferrell and "Natural Cures They Don’t Want You to Know About" by Kevin Trudeau, Shawnte's mother wanted more information about sodium lauryl sulfates and parabens, and their side effects. Her mom, having suffered from multiple sclerosis for over 23 years, was committed to living naturally and asked Shawnte to research sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
The studies about SLS were astounding, and Shawnte began to wonder why she was using products with these ingredients. In her research, she also discovered numerous “do it yourself” hair care recipes. Shawnte began making hair butters and twisting gels, and even took several soap-making classes. She found great success in making the recipes found online and decided to create her own products.
With her background in cosmetology, Shawnte began creating her own line of hair and skin products with a passion. She is totally committed to creating natural hair and body products, and does so with the utmost integrity and love.
