Handmade in Ghana with only the finest and purest ingredients, SKIN GOURMET is processed with only natural goodness. In Ghana, our traditional method of caring for our skin is based on what we eat.
” In other words, if it is not good enough to put in the body, then it is definitely not good enough to put on your skin. The reason is simple – what we put in our body will show up on our skin and what we put on our skin will end up in our body.”
Because of this belief, skin care in Ghana is made using old traditional techniques that are gentle in the extraction and collection process. Everything is made by hand with minimal heat. The result? Skin care that is not only Raw, Pure & Natural but food grade because the method of processing allows the products to remain in their most unadulterated form.
“We keep in mind that every body is unique, and each person’s path to vibrant living may be different. This is why we are concerned with both internal and external health. Hence, we design a skin care line that is 100% natural and chemical free.”
