In Senegal, the Sufis say that nature is man's best pharmacy. As such, I was taught as a child, like all children, to treat her with great care, love, and respect.
I am deeply honored to share with you the ancient healing gifts of Senegal. Each one of our products has been carefully crafted using the finest, most healing and nourishing ingredients Africa has to offer, combined with state-of-the-art clean technology.
The result is Ellativa™, our unique healing complex that combines Black Seed Oil – a natural focal point of many traditional remedies – with an exclusive blend of essential oils and natural ingredients to deliver healthy, radiant skin.
Black Seed Oil
This Middle East native, introduced to Senegal through the Islamic traders via Timbuktu more than a thousand years ago, is a powerful antioxidant with natural anti-inflammatory benefits. It also boasts protection at the cellular level, an ability to control allergic reactions, and even has anti-fungal properties. It nourishes and heals skin from the inside out, providing superior free-radical protection for even the most sensitive skin. Black Seed Oil can be found in our Body Cream, Body Lotion, Body Polish, Bar Soap and Body Wash. SHOP >
Unrefined Shea Butter
Drawn from the Karité Nut tree of West Africa, Shea Butter delivers a wealth of nurturing benefits, and has been used for centuries in a variety of body treatments. Shea Butter is one of nature’s best emollients and is well known for its smoothing and healing properties. Unusually rich with fatty acids, it is the remedy of choice for dry, damaged skin. Unrefined Shea Butter can be found in our Body Cream, Body Lotion, Body Polish, Bar Soap and Body Wash. SHOP >
Wildly nourishing, Aloe Vera delivers a wide range of key nutrients, including vitamins, fatty acids, and amino acids – a unique combination among plant extracts. Using advanced freeze-drying techniques, Tiossan crafts the same extract that has been traditionally generated for over 1,000 years by the breaking of leaves. Aloe Vera can be found in our Body Cream, Body Lotion, Body Polish, Bar Soap and Body Wash. SHOP >
Safflower Seed Oil
Safflower Seed Oil is known for its powerful skincare benefits. Very rich in Omega 6 and Vitamin E, it also contains linoleic acid – an essential fatty acid that reduces inflammation and encourages skin hydration. Safflower Seed Oil can be found in our Body Cream, Body Lotion, Body Polish, Bar Soap and Body Wash. SHOP >
Rice Bran Oil
In Senegal, rice is one of the staple foods. This Rice Bran Oil is cold pressed from the inner husk and the germ of Oryza sativa rice. The oil contains a gamma oryzano, a unique component and one of the most effective anti-oxidants existing. The high sterol content makes Rice Bran Oil a powerful agent against free radicals, providing excellent supportive activity for mature skin. Rice Bran Oil protein can be found in our Body Cream and Body Lotion. SHOP >
