from the jungles of West Africa to our kitchen in Kent
we created skincare that is Kind to Skin, Kind to People + Kind to Planet.
Our Hero ingredient is super sustainable organic Palm. Native to West Africa, oil palm tree (Elaeis guineensis) bears fruit that has been an ancient healing remedy that works wonders on skin.
While working on rural farms in West Africa, we saw how amazing Red Palm, Palm Kernel Oil & Shea Butter were for the skin and hair. Local Sierra Leonean women swore by it.
Back home in England, we were also trying to soothe + heal the skin of our children with severe eczema.
We mixed powerful potions in the kitchen and experimented on our family’s sensitive skin. Our creation was a completely natural, plant-based product which effectively mimicked the consistency of paraffin-based emollients. POWER BALM was born.
