Our story began on our home farm, with lavender grown by Zehra.

Motivated to challenge the current buzzwords mis-used in skincare today she reverted to first principles of human biology: Healthy skin comes from proper cell division, healthy collagen production, and efficient dead cell removal supported all through vitamins delivered to the dermis in a non-comedogenic medium.

We craft skin care
that builds cells.

Blending the right botanicals with science-backed formulas, our all-natural ingredients help the body synthesize healthy skin cells reducing discoloration and wrinkles for beautiful results.

Purposefully designed and formulated.

Our vegan and botanical based ingredients are formulated to have the highest level of vitamin A, B, C, D and E derived from botanical sources. 

From lavender to aloe vera, sunflower and grapeseed oil, rosemary, marigold, oranges and carrots, we distill every essential oil and hydrosol, in our products. Our infused oils and blends are purposefully designed with high amounts of vitamins and antioxidants. Our Ghanian shea butter supports the women who create it.
