SHALOM LLOYD, FOUNDER NATURALLY TIWA SKINCARE RECEIVES MBE FOR SERVICES TO INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND WOMEN IN BUSINESS

We are proud to announce that our founder, Shalom Ijeoma Lloyd, has been recognised in The King’s
New Year Honours List 2024 and awarded an MBE for services to International Trade and Women in
Business.

Shalom Lloyd is an inspirational leader, colleague, parent, and entrepreneur who drives diversity and
engagement in all she does. Born in Nigeria, with secondary education in Ukraine for Pharmacy she
has lived in the UK since graduation. For nearly 30 years, Shalom has worked in the pharmaceutical
industry supporting the research that brings new medicines to patients across the world, transforming
the work of her teams to deliver excellence. In recent years she has become the true entrepreneur
establishing new businesses across two sectors to increase diversity, inclusion and ‘Trade Not Aid’,
especially for sub-Saharan Africa. Built on her drug development expertise she co-founded Emerging
Markets Quality Trials (eMQT) as a service provider to the drug development industry to drive the
inclusion of African people into development programmes, alongside establishing a skincare company,
Naturally Tiwa Skincare, as a result of her sons’ eczema. By building a Shea Butter factory in rural
Nigeria, the Kingdom of Essan based facility and with the establishment of JE Oils in Abuja, Nigeria,
she has brought ‘Trade and Not Aid’ to life in communities, empowering and employing the local
women. Her inclusive approach has seen her actively support the drive for greater exporting and
importing to a wide list of countries. As a result, Shalom has been a Department for Business and Trade
Export Champion since 2018 and sits on the Made in Britain International Trade Panel, as well as a
Freeman of the Worshipful Company of World Traders.

Alongside this, Shalom creates opportunities to give back – SMILE a charitable meeting place for local
cancer patients, using MK Snap whose workers with learning disabilities fulfil product orders, and
fundraising and delivering women’s cancer screening in Africa. Shalom provides mentoring, both here
in the UK and to women in Africa, driving opportunity and growth. Her impact on those around her is
immeasurable and leaves a legacy beyond her own efforts.

Achieving all this while being an amazing parent to 5 children. We are incredibly proud of all of
Shalom’s outstanding achievements thus far and this well-deserved recognition.
