Our Philosophy

  • Where we source from: Our sheabutter is naturally derived from the shea nut trees and processed by rural African women in Nigeria predominantly.
  • We are passionate about where and how we source our ingredients as our sheabutter is ONLY purchased from Nigerian markets from rural women as we seek to empower their roles in strengthening their financial position in the developing world/ global south economy. We are a social enterprise determined to make a difference to the lives of rural women in Africa- usually the silent contributors to the financial market economy.
  • To create our skincare, we formulate our products with other naturally derived or certified organic ingredients.
  • Majority of our products are plant based and vegan friendly. However, in a limited selection  of product such as the lip balms, we use pure and natural beeswax - a by product of honey bees. The beeswax is sourced from an approved bee seller in the UK ensuring the right conditions of the beehive and bees community.
  • Testing of products: We do not test the performance of our products on animals.
  • Packaging: Our ingredients are packaged in recyclable non-corrosive aluminium tins reducing waste and the leaching of the products which can be common when plastic packaging is used over time.
