In the world of skincare, a new star is shining brightly. Meet Olamide Ayomikun Olowe, the founder of Topicals.

Olamide is not just a successful entrepreneur, she’s also a proud graduate of UCLA. She studied Political Science and Entrepreneurship. Her heritage is a big part of her success.
Her parents migrated from Nigeria to Texas, bringing together rich Nigerian culture and big dreams.

At just 27, she became the youngest black woman to raise over $10 million in funds for her business. This record set makes Olamide the youngest black female to reach this milestone.

Olamide Olowe’s journey is nothing short of inspiring. With the support of big names like Gabrielle Union, Kelly Rowland, Issa Ray, and JC’s Marcy Venture Fonts, Topicals raised a stunning $12 million. She’s not just making waves around the skincare community but changing it.

She shared her experience with her skin; as she had faced skin challenges herself, like boils, ingrown hairs, and acne. Instead of feeling down, she got to work. She created Topicals to help with issues often ignored, like eczema and hyperpigmentation. Her message? Be yourself, love your skin, and know you’re not alone.

Topicals donated $100,000 to support mental health causes, as they care deeply about mental health. For Olamide and Topicals, beauty is beyond the skin. It’s about how you feel inside.

She successfully made it to Forbes 30 under 30! That’s the kind of success that tells you this isn’t just a brand; it’s a movement.

Topicals made a smart move and teamed up with different influencers like Uche Natori, Kira Hominique, Indiyah and many more and travelled to Ghana for Detty December.
Travelling to Ghana was more than just marketing; it was about connecting with people and their culture.

Topicals isn’t just about looking good. It’s about feeling strong, proud, and empowered. When she pitched to Sephora, she showed them a vision. She talked about different chronic skin conditions, not just as a problem but as an opportunity to help and have great skin.
