TIOSSAN IS AN ALL-NATURAL ARTISAN SKIN CARE BRAND INSPIRED BY THE TRADITIONAL SUFI HEALERS OF SENEGAL. LEARN THE BEAUTY RITUALS OF THE GORGEOUS SENEGALESE WOMEN, ADMIRED AROUND THE WORLD FOR THEIR AGE-DEFYING FIRM AND SOFT SKIN.
OUR BEAUTY SECRETS
UNIQUE BODY CARE
Senegalese women are admired around the world for their age-defying firm and soft skin. Tiossan brings you their secrets so you too can tighten, tone and moisturize your skin and indulge in centuries-old formulations passed down from generation to generation, never written, one woman at a time.
Sleep is the best beauty secret of the Senegalese women, one they take very seriously. Our therapeutic Beauty Sleep collection is expertly formulated to feed your body and soothe your mind, helping you prepare for a restful night of sleep, waking up feeling and looking great.
Magatte, the Founder, says that in her native Senegal, there is a ritual for all babies. For the first 45 days, a grandmother gives her a daily full-body massage. Thus, a daily ritual of self-love is established for life by spending a few minutes every day making those gestures over your own skin with nourishing ingredients that come from the land.
This ritual of caring for the body creates a unique connection with it. That is what the indigenous people know. Women who observe and practice these traditional methods radiate with a different type of health and beauty. Tiossan offers you, not only these sacred ingredients and formulations to feed your body skin, but a reminder of the importance of doing this every single day.
Today's women spend most of their time, energy and resources on the face and hair, while completely neglecting the rest of their skin. Skin is the body's largest organ and it needs to be kept in optimum state of health so it can do its work: absorb nutrients for the body, expel toxins and form a natural barrier against external pollutants. Don't you think such a vital organ deserves as much attention as the face and hair? From our body care line to our sleep collection, Tiossan products were designed to help you keep your body skin healthy, radiant and beautiful.
In addition to featuring the purest, organically grown ingredients Africa has to offer, Tiossan products are crafted around a key ingredient , Black Seed Oil. Used for centuries by Senegalese Sufi elders and locally described as “The Remedy for Everything, Except Death”, modern science has discovered Black Seed Oil contains intense healing and anti-aging properties. It is a powerful anti-oxidant, an anti-microbial and super botanical that has been shown to have anti-carcinogenic properties. The traditional Senegalese recipes have been updated by the best contemporary green chemists to offer you an all natural product line with scents, textures, and absorption characteristics designed to cater to the most discriminating customer in the world.
Tiossan's philanthropic goals are to finance entrepreneurial education in Senegal. 50% of Tiossan profits are dedicated to the creation of innovative schools. Magatte's husband, Michael Strong, is co-creator of the Kọ School (formerly Khabele+Strong Incubator), an entrepreneurial incubator for teens integrated with a Socratic college prep secondary school (Inc Magazine wrote a great article on the school here). By means of creating entrepreneurial schools, we intend to expand our impact and foster hundreds of additional well-educated conscious Senegalese entrepreneurs, job creators of tomorrow.
