Ever since our first booth at the Christmas Market in Mondorf back in 2017, the black soap from TAMA is a fixed part of our product range. 2019 we managed to establish a cooperation with TAMA Europe which is based in Germany. So far we were always dependent on the help of our members that brought the soap back to Germany from their trips to Ghana.
Thanks to the cooperation we are now better able to plan and are less at risk of running out of the soap.
We chose the TAMA-products as these are EU-certified, sustainable and produced under faire working conditions in Ghana. The products are vegan, cruelty free and free of microplastic.
TAMA produces Shea butter that is manufactured by women in the SeKaf Shea Butter Villages from nuts that are grown and harvested in Ghana.
The Shea Butter Village is located near Tamale, in the north of Ghana. There the Shea collectors are not only paid for the harvested nuts but also included in the further processing of the product. Furthermore, they offer education and training. That way the village provides a livelihood to the women and helps them sustainably improve their living conditions.
