“I could never have imagined that one day I would have the honour of being L’Oréal Paris’ first Sub-Saharan Africa spokesperson,” Mbedu said in a press statement.

Growing up, one never saw oneself as beautiful.

“A brand that stands for women empowerment, with a strong sense of diversity, sisterhood and feminism. So far, I’ve enjoyed learning about the innovative technology behind L’Oréal’s product range and the ground-breaking strides made in understanding African skin. Their products are amazing, and I’m thrilled to be representing my African community within this incredible global brand.”

L’Oréal Sub-Saharan Africa president Burkhard Pieroth said they were excited to welcome her to the L’Oréal Paris family.

“Her exceptional talent, timeless beauty and commitment to empowering others align perfectly with our mission,” Pieroth said. “We look forward to embarking on this exciting journey together to inspire individuals to embrace their uniqueness and celebrate their inner beauty.”
