Vitellaria Nilotica, East African Shea butter is a superior moisturizer that’s prized due to its rarity. It’s soft and smooth so it readily absorbs into your skin on contact. Nilotica Shea butter boasts a light scent, which allows the aromatic blend of essential oils to take center stage.
Our Nilotica is unrefined, sustainably wild-harvested and fair-traded by a women’s co-operative in Uganda. Sourcing our Nilotica Shea butter from a women’s co-operative in Uganda empowers women and families to break the chains of poverty. It also spotlights these once-orphaned jewels and establishes these women as guardians and keepers of these rare treasures.
The Marula fruit is called, ‘Food of Kings’. The Marula kernel is full of nutrient-dense, healing oil. The high content of oleic acid gives it great antioxidant activities. The oil is easily absorbed into skin for excellent moisturizing.
Our Marula oil is cold-pressed, sustainably wild-harvested and fair-traded by women’s co-operatives in Swaziland and Botswana.
Dead Sea salt adorns our Cleopatra-inspired milk bath. It has stood the test of time. With an abundance of minerals, Dead Sea salt is recognized in Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest ancient Egyptian medical books, for its therapeutic benefits.
Baobab tree is called, ‘The Tree of Life’. Baobab trees are self-regenerating and the largest succulents in the world. Harnessing these two traits, your skin benefits from this vitamin and essential fatty acid packed moisturizer.
Our organic Baobab oil is cold-pressed, sustainably wild-harvested and fair-traded by a women’s co-operative in Zimbabwe. Baobab trees sustain the life of women in rural Africa by providing steady work and economic empowerment, which provides a source of income for food, clothing and schooling for their children.
Exfoliating dates back to ancient Egypt. They exfoliated with alabaster particles combined with milk and honey. Cleopatra maintained her flawless skin with sea salt scrubs.
We take a sweeter approach to exfoliating by using raw brown sugar, Mongongo oil, Dead Sea salt, and Nilotica Shea butter. Raw sugar provides a natural source of alpha hydroxy and glycolic acid. Dead Sea salt is magnesium-rich. Nilotica Shea butter provides high-levels of fatty acids your skin needs. Mongongo oil is high in polyunsaturated fatty acids and has a thin, light texture that's nourishing for dry skin.
We infuse local, raw buckwheat honey into our body wash. Why Buckwheat honey? Buckwheat honey has the highest antioxidant content compared to other honey. That means greater skin benefits for you.
Castor oil is the other key ingredient in our body wash. Castor oil dates back to ancient Egypt for cleansing the skin. Egyptians viewed cleanliness and wellbeing as sacred.
