Budget Beauty: Lather Up and Give

A bar a soap is one of the greatest beauty items you can own. Soap is a universal cleanser and the way we first begin our beauty routines. But what if the simple bar of soap you use to wash away dirt and grime could also give hope and light to a young child needing education? Get clean and give with our favorite organic shea butter soap made by Out of Africa.

Gilles Adamon, owner of Natura Sarl, headquartered in Benin, West Africa, attended the 2005 Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA hoping to find a distributor for his shea butter cosmetic products. As luck would have it, Victor was at the Expo looking for an interesting opportunity to help expand his product line.

The two men found that they shared not only an interest in natural products, but in social responsibility as well. Producing premium quality skincare products is only half of their story. Lulla and Adamon’s partnership supports several women’s cooperatives and creates jobs in democratic Benin, West Africa. Out of Africa shea butter skincare also sponsors a groundbreaking project in Benin called SCHOOL CHILDREN UNITE. A portion of all sales is being donated to this global leadership initiative.

Do you have any favorite beauty products tied to socially responsible initiatives? Let us know!

Love and Beauty,
