With summer just around the corner, we are living in a growing industry of beauty and cosmetic products that focuses on the value of safe, sustainable and organic products.
Some of the very best products for your skin comes straight from the motherland.
In partnership with the USAID and Peace Corps, Inua founder Abir Ibrahim and counterpart Mwinyi Boko established Inua Naturals in rural Tanzania in response to the
gender-poverty gap and high rates of malnutrition in the region.
Inua Naturals main focus is having natural products while creating a meaningful impact. All of these products give global consumers the opportunity to make a direct impact on marginalized communities. All of Inua Naturals products are organic and handcrafted, free of preservatives and harmful chemicals.
Some of these ethically sourced ingredients that we all know and love include: the greatest of all time...Coconut Oil (it is literally EVERYTHING), Turmeric, a super root that is a great anti-inflammatory, offering healing and skin-brightening properties and Moringa leaf, a crazy powerful plant that provides soothing properties to dry and dull skin. It’s also great on acne and dark-pigmentation marks on the face. Other than using this plant for cosmetic reason, it is incredible nutritionally providing 25 times more iron than spinach, 17 times more calcium than milk, 15 times more potassium than milk the list goes on and on. Vibranium is that you?
Working with over 150 artisans, Inua Naturals allows women to be the driving forces in social business and entrepreneurship opportunities. Many are also able to create changes right in their communities like changing rates of malnutrition and poverty.
In having these jobs, the women of Tanga, Tanzania are able to provides more resources and are able to contribute to emerging economy.
Inua has since expanded from Tanzania, to across Africa and the United States, establishing the US headquarters in Washington, DC.
