My Story

Founder of Jiri Naturals

Welcome Visitors!

My name is Leria McClendon, the Owner and Manufacturer of Jiri Naturals.  I was born on the 25th day of September in 1994.  I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from Jackson State University, and am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Business Administration.  I work in finance and run my business (Jiri Naturals), so its safe to say I have a hand in everything! I have been a proud Naturalista for 3 years now, and I love doing artwork which is one of many talents.  Now that I have introduced myself, let me share my story with you! 

An Idea was Born

My story started off with me just looking for products with all natural ingredients for my dry skin and kinky/curly hair. Even though there are a ton of products on the market, most were too expensive for me or just did not work. The body and hair butters at the store would moisturize my skin at first, but it would become dry throughout the day. There were always chemicals, alcohols, and other long and unfamiliar ingredients in the products, even the bunch that made "all natural/organic" claims.  I then began looking for other alternatives. I did a lot of research and experimenting, learning what ingredients worked together best for different causes. Then I started making many recipes that were specific to my needs and they turned out to be a major success! Family and friends were inquiring about what I used for my hair and skin. I always told everyone I made my own products, and they wanted to try them. After getting so many compliments on my products, I decided to share them with the world! I also wanted to make my products more affordable, because usually, the raw ingredient products are much more expensive than the average products. So that is my story. Feel free to read below to learn more about my products, and enjoy! Also my products are not exclusive to women only. Men, women, and children alike can all benefit.

Whipped Shea Butter

This product can be used interchangeably for the hair and skin.  The key ingredients are Raw Shea Butter, Cocoa butter, and Coconut oil.  It also contains many other natural moisturizing and essential oils. The whipped Shea mix seals moisture into hair after water or a leave-in is applied.  It is also an excellent moisturizer for skin, and can be useful for people with certain skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, flaking skin, burned skin, and dry skin. In addition, the enticing buttercream scent tops off the loveliness of this product. 

Coconut Mango Butter

The Coconut Mango Butter can also be used interchangeably for hair and skin. The key ingredients are Coconut Oil, Mango Butter, and Tea Tree Oil. This product is another excellent moisturizer, with a fruity tropical fragrance.  The formula is fluffier and lighter than the Whipped Shea Mix, so for those who prefer a lighter moisturizer for their hair or skin, this product a great choice.  It is also one of our best sellers and can be useful for the same skin conditions as the Shea butter mix.
