Yara Shea Beauty creates natural skin care products made with pure, unrefined shea butter that is sourced and handcrafted by women in Ghana, West Africa. The shea, free of any and all chemicals, is made according to fair trade and organic standards providing these female producers fair wages and safe working conditions.
Nguzo Ogbodo created Yara Shea Beauty to utilize African resources to address African problems. The money earned from the sale of these products is donated to the non profit Nguzo started in 2011, Hope and Dreams Initiative in Nigeria, which focuses on empowering and fighting period poverty, and enabling girls and young women to stay in school. The initiative provides them with the necessary hygiene and sexual reproductive health education, so that they can live their lives with dignity and purpose.
Taking care of your skin not only gives hope to girls and young women, but also empowers marginalized women in Nigeria and Ghana who sourced and handcrafted these products, building stronger communities in the process.
