I was sad to see Shea Moisture isn’t black owned anymore. I saw a special a few months ago that Shea Moisture was sold by the original founders (the buyer was not revealed but through research I found it was Unilever). The former founder purchased Essence. After two previous fuck ups by Shea Moisture attempting to be more “inclusive" aka chase white dollars, they decided not to inform Shea Moisture’s faith public of the sale. I heard the sale made him a billionaire.
