The Story Behind Akanni
My Menopausal Journey
Embarking on my own menopausal journey as a dedicated wife and mother, I was determined not to let menopause dictate the terms of my life. By 42, I recognized the signs of perimenopause and, although HRT was on the table, I chose a different path. Diving deep into research, I sought out education and became a Certified Natural Skincare Formulator and Wellness Coach, crafting innovative, natural solutions for the menopausal maze.
Menopause, once a "shhhh" topic, has been twisted into anti-aging propaganda marred by the celebrity and "beauty" bandwagon — but not on my watch. I believe in celebrating maturity, not masking it. Rejecting the term 'anti-aging,' Akanni is the revolutionary answer to the call for authentic self-care and wellness for the real, magnificent menopausal woman. A woman who honors her age and desires to reclaim her well-being.
Akanni is more than just a line of exceptional products; it's a movement. It's about empowering you to navigate your menopausal journey with grace, knowledge, and a community that champions feeling fabulous at any stage. Welcome to a new era of menopausal wellness, where feeling normal isn't just a hope—it's your new reality
