In today’s health-conscious world, we all want skincare products that are all-natural with no exotic chemicals. But for those of us looking to buy natural and organic, it’s hard to tell the difference between products that are safe and those that aren’t.
That's why we're here. Our mission is to provide our customers with all-natural, traditionally-made skincare products from around the world. We spend our time finding and testing unique products, and those we choose meet our high standards for quality and ethics. We are excited to make our products available online for the first time!
We sometimes overlook where skincare ingredients come from, even though we apply these products to our skin every day. Often, plant-based ingredients are intensively grown using pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Further, animals are frequently used to test new chemical formulations.
We strongly disagree with both practices. That’s why we set out to find products that are organic, sustainably sourced, and ethically produced. For example, our Tama line uses premium organic shea butter purchased from women’s collectives in northern Ghana, which provides economic opportunity in an otherwise rural-poor area.
We get very excited about the natural qualities shea butter, which is found in all of our products. Shea butter is made from the nut of the Shea Tree. It has been used in West Africa for centuries to promote healthy skin and hair. Scientists now know it is naturally concentrated in fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants which benefit the delicate chemistry of our skin and hair. Try it for yourself and you will see!
