Karité is the brainchild of three sisters from Ghana, West Africa...Nana Boakye, M.D., Abena Slowe and Akua Okunseinde.
For years, they searched for a natural skin moisturizer that compared to the raw, unrefined shea butter that they grew up using—to no avail. With diverse backgrounds that include dermatology, marketing, sales, law and economics, they set out to recreate the traditional formulation that they'd used for so many years.
As a result, Karité was born. Unlike other shea butter moisturizers that often have low concentrations of highly-processed, refined shea butter (along with a slew of other skin-damaging chemicals and synthetic ingredients), Karité's all-natural, antioxidant-rich products feature high concentrations of raw, unrefined shea butter and palm oil sustainably sourced directly from Ghana.
Karité blends these pure ingredients with unrefined organic coconut oil and other botanicals to create the perfect moisturizer that soothes and heals even the most sensitive skin. Formulated without harsh chemicals and solvents that can irritate skin, Karité products are hypoallergenic and free of synthetic dyes, silicones and parabens.
The three sisters are excited to share these amazing natural products with you!
