Our Story

I created Tiossan (tee-oh-sahn), the first luxury skincare brand from Senegal, because I wanted to share the gifts that had been passed down by my ancestors.  As a child, my grandmother nourished my skin daily with the formulations made by our village traditional healer.  Now, as a cosmopolitan woman with a life on three continents, I use the same ancient recipes and natural African botanicals to keep my skin vibrant, healthy, and young.

Over the past few years, I have put love and care into bringing these formulations to the global market to share with you. It is my pleasure to introduce Tiossan. Enjoy!
