When we test products, we first look for only the purest botanical ingredients. We avoid any petroleum distillates and questionable fixatives. We seek products that use only the finest natural or organic herbs and extracts, pure essential oils and organic fruit and nut oils, and organic butters. Our next test is a very personal one. We use the products we’ve selected on ourselves, our friends, and our families before we offer them to you. If anyone who is testing a product reports a negative response (other than a preference for or against scents), we do not offer that product.

producers as a team, expanding each others’ talents and ideas. It is rewarding to work with such skilled artisanswho enjoy
what they do and to know that they realize a fair return for their work.
Ojoba Collective was started in 2003 as a means to help poor villagers in West Africa gain a fair wage for their crafts. Working as teachers in a rural village in Ghana gave us an up-close look at the challenges faced by local people in West Africa. Most live at a very subsistence level, and often go hungry, or cannot afford basic needs like health care and school fees. We realized that one of the biggest obstacles to development in the region was a basic lack of financial resources. We met so many wonderful, talented, and hardworking people, but there was just simply not enough economic opportunities for them to improve their situations.
