The idea to make our bath and body products stemmed from an addiction. I have always been addicted to different fragrances, but a lot of commercial bath and body products were irritating to my sensitive skin. So I decided to learn the art of making my own bath and body products. To my surprise, the first batch of soaps sold in one day with orders for more and the first jars of whipped shea butter cloud were snatched up quickly by friends and family. As demand grew, I joined forces with my sister, who pushed for expansion, she did market research and worked to spread the word about our product, putting Shea Essentials on the map. That was over seven years ago…
Though the name has changed, Duafe Naturals continues to operate with one simple goal: to provide our customers the best in natural, handmade bath and body products made with only the finest, natural ingredients in an amazing array of fragrances. Why Shea? Shea butter has been used for centuries in Africa to aide in the protection, healing and rejuvenation of skin and hair. Its natural UV protection and moisturizing properties makes shea butter an excellent barrier against the elements. Light, and non-comedogenic (does not clog pores), it can be used on all skin types to help bring skin back into proper moisture balance, resulting in a healthy, glowing appearance.
Our formulations use natural ingredients including unrefined shea butter, mango butter, jojoba oils, vegetable glycerin, and other nourishing oils and herbs. We use organics whenever feasible and none of our products contain petroleum-based ingredients like mineral oil, unnatural colors, preservatives or fillers. Our entire product line is 100% vegan. Not only do we make these products, we love them! Each of our products is tested first on ourselves and if it isn’t good enough for us, then we’ll never offer it to you.
What makes Duafe Naturals different is that we are dedicated to making things better ~ your skin, our society and our environment. These intentions, wellness, happiness & prosperity are mixed in with each handmade batch of products we prepare. Thank you for visiting the site. We hope you enjoy your visit and welcome you back anytime.
