Let’s meet you
I am Babafemi-Francis Olubunmi by name. The CEO of Ruby Sparkling Herbspa. A graduate of English Education. I’m an Aesthetician, a skin therapist and an herbal practitioner. I’m from Ondo State and I graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University.
How did the Herbspa business start for you?
It’s an interesting story. It actually started from myself. Before now I used to be very big. Back then in school, my friends used to mock me by calling me “rubutu”, that was how bad it was for my size. With a zeal to trim down my size, I tried a range of various products and none came out effective for me. So, I took a further step to travel out of the country and seek remedy elsewhere. I decided that, this time around, I would have to learn it myself and ensure it is all natural. So, I learnt how to gather and mix herbs. This was in Mexico and Ghana. I returned home upon the saying that Charity begins at home and I tested the herbs on myself and within weeks I was all down to my desired shape and size. The result was so overwhelming that people came out in numbers asking me questions like, “What happened? What did you do? How did you do it? and so on?” So, that was how it all began for me. An addition to it was the part where I worked on my Skin too. Though I wasn’t dark but I was able to tone my skin and have it on balance. I need to add this, I went from 96kg to 65kg in just 3 months. That’s over 30kg loss.
So, what led to you opening the Spa and starting the business?
Like I said, I learnt the rudiments of herbs and how it works for weight loss. It worked for me, so why should I keep it all to myself? I started the Spa business not for myself anymore but for others who need it just like I needed it. People can lose weight in weeks naturally using only herbs and not products that contain chemicals and result in side effect(s). Same applies for their skin. They can tone their skin using 100% herbal products.

What were the challenges from when you wanted to start, when you started to this present moment?
Did I really have any challenge? I am not sure of that. I believe the major challenge for every SME is breaking into the market, and that alone can I consider a challenge for Ruby Sparkling Herbspa, considering that we just started 2 years ago, even though we have grown tremendously from when we started. I started from inside my room to the beautiful space we occupy in Ogba now.
