We Believe...

Clean beauty originated in Africa. Many of these African beauty rituals we share were initially created with intent to heal or celebrate. Plant botanicals like; roots, herbs, oils and butters were first used to efficaciously treat ailments, maintain health or as part of ceremonious occasions like births and weddings. These same plant botanicals have powerful results when used as part of your beauty routine.
