Our Team

It is them, artisans and local people, who make Africana Skincare possible

Africana Skincare Artisan Collaborators


Rascharles transforms the natural calabash into a unique and original design to make the packaging of our products. He is also the creator of our calabash candle holders.


Paul uses raffia (Raphia) to create one of our handmade cover designs.  Paul is also the creator of the corn husk bag.


Maa (meaning “mother”) uses a local material called elephant grass, also known as Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum Schumach). One of our goals is to involve more women weavers in the creation of our packaging.


Gatuso is in charge of producing our handmade spatulas as well as varnishing and polishing the calabashes.


Joseph is in charge of engraving the logo on the calabashes and spatulas.


We collaborate with several calabash suppliers. Depending on the season, it can be difficult to find a specific type of calabash, which is why we have developed relationships with a broader network of local calabash suppliers.

Women’s Shea Cooperative

To obtain our raw materials, shea butter and African black soap, we collaborate with a women’s cooperative in Northern Ghana.

Handmade paper

As part of our packaging, we use a handmade paper (Mulberry paper) that also comes from a plant: Broussonetia papyrifera. We obtain this paper through our collaboration with The Ghana Paper Project.
