Our products were inspired by our heritage. Natural beauty sourced from within Africa and handcrafted for a global citizen.
In November 2014, Akos found herself in South Africa and very quickly learned that the climate was unlike anything she had experienced before. Her skin was not happy and she had to find a solution. Heading straight for the 'Women's Gold" (Shea butter) at local stores, Akos very quickly realized that there was no organic, REAL Shea butter available. In fact, it was tough finding pure, natural ingredients at all....and so began Orobaa of Africavisit our store

Akos began her life in her home, Ghana where she lived with her 18 siblings (fo real!) and her proud father Odi Asem Pa who was known as the 'Wise Man' by his community. He had a generous heart and took the time to share wisdom with those around him. Akos once said to me: "My father loved us all equally!" but his clone, the one who fed on his knowledge about the earth, sustainability and that nature ALWAYS provides, was Akos. These are the roots that led to Orobaa Africa.
