Funmilayo Oyeogbe

is the root and fruit behind the The Purple Root. For years Funmilayo has been making products personally for herself, pets, family and friends, always thinking of something new with quality ingredients.

While working in a vegan restaurant in NYC, Funmilayo Shared some of her products with coworkers. After being asked several times does she sell her items?  Funmilayo thought to herself it would be nice to have a brand that can cover your whole family from your bundle of joy to your playful pooch. Not knowing where to begin or having a team it was just a thought.

“From the Roots to the surface Purple Bliss”

In 2020 to the worldwide pandemic, Funmilayo begin making hand sanitizer to hand out to people. That’s when the thought came back, it came every night stronger and stronger. Funmilayo purchased 2 books on starting your own business, which help her turn her thoughts into actual plans.  

With Purple being her favorite color and the root being the foundation for things to grow.  The Purple Root has surfaced, Funmilayo is dedicated to build the brand to magnify quality, originality and customer service. Not only for Health & Beauty but, the root of inspiration to grow into whatever you desire.
