Ashanti Cosmetics

Ashanti Cosmetics was founded by Ghanaian native Rose Appiah in 2017. Rose, who has a degree in science, a granddaughter of a Miss Ghana and who comes from a long line of Ghanaian herbalists. She learnt her recipes from said beauty queen, who had to learn how to make her own moisturisers and make up because of the limited resources. She made her products based on family recipes that span over five generations. Thanks to this, Rose became well versed in the secrets of naturally beautiful skin. And thanks to her scientific background, she knew how to combine nature's best ingredients with science to provide the best formula for glowing, healthy skin. We believe that the softness of our organically sourced ingredients from our family owned farms, like shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut make our moisturisers, oils, and delicious scents purify your mind and ease your soul. They beautify your skin without the worry of nasty chemicals or environmental damage. Each one of the products is bursting with organic vegan beauty and love. Our promise to you is to help keep your skin perfectly young, supple, golden and smooth without any added synthetics. Beauty is simplicity.
