Made for Knoxville: Tanika Harper

Maker and Change Maker: Meet Tanika Harper, Founder of Harper’s Naturals

Tanika created an entire skin care line by hand just to keep her own skin healthy, and in the process realized that she could help others who wanted pure, chemical free, handcrafted products. 

But helping others didn’t stop with skin care. Tanika is a tireless advocate for the need to build greater opportunity for economic success within the Black community. Through her various foundations, Tanika is a supporter, champion, and a source of inspiration and capital for Black-owned businesses in our region.
