Ingredients straight from the earth

“Mother Earth” scent is our favourite scent. We do not “modify” any of our products because we believe the way nature provides us with these powerful natural ingredients, that is the way we should use them.

Women supporting women

All our raw materials are sourced locally and bought directly from a women’s cooperative from Northern Ghana. More information below.

Packaging that can save the planet

The calabash  is one of the symbols of rural African life and is a product that has been regarded as a planet saver. Once it breaks or become unusable, it can be disposed and it will decay naturally without polluting the soil.

Pagsung “Good Woman”

In line with achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 5 (Gender Equality), one of the cooperatives main objective is to reduce poverty by empowering the  women to reduce gender inequality and aiding them to have a sustainable source of livelihood. The cooperative also ensures that its’ members, regardless of educational background, take part in training sessions geared towards providing them with skills and knowledge to guide their financial and personal growth.

What does empowerment mean to women in Northern Ghana?

Women in Northern Ghana are especially vulnerable to poverty due to gender inequality. More than half of female headed households in rural areas are among the poorest 20% of the population. This results in malnutrition, food insecurity, poor maternal health, and high child mortality. Despite all this, women still bear heavier workloads and work at least twice as many hours as men. This is one of the reasons why it is so important we buy our raw materials directly from the women. By doing so we contribute in supporting the cooperative which in turn gives them opportunity, space and resources to grow. This is going to aid in reducing poverty in rural areas, to induce inclusive economic growth, and to ensure the economic prosperity all women.

African Ancestral Beauty Products

Shea butter has been used since ancient times as an edible oil, medicine, cream, and soap base. It has superior moisturizing, regenerative, and medicinal properties.

Packaging from plants grown in Ghana

Every single part of our packaging comes from a plant, utilising what Ghanaian nature has provided us with. We have chosen these materials specifically because in one way or another, they’re attached to  Ghana’s culture & traditions, which allows us to expose Ghana’s beauty and powerful natural resources to the rest of the world.

Paper with a purpose
