Living Simply: An Interview with Saidah from Shea BODYWORKS

Saidah Pearsall is a pretty incredible business owner that we are happy to have as part of our community at Ignite. She owns Shea BODYWORKS, an all-natural skincare company created to nourish dry and sensitive skin. But, her skincare brand isn’t just about creating soft skin, it’s also about creating experiences.

Saidah helps create these experiences with her products because she believes the words ‘“simple” and “natural” are not just reserved for skincare, but are to be used in our everyday lives. Living simply and completely yourself is really important to Saidah because she knows that when you do your own thing and stop worrying about what others think, you are able to stand in your greatness.

When you do your own thing, and stop worrying about what others think, you are able to stand in your greatness.

We loved learning more about Saidah and we hope you do too!
