Ashanti Cosmetics was founded by Ghanaian native Rose Appiah in 2017. Rose, who has a degree in science, learned her recipes from her grandmother Maame who was Miss Ghana in 1958. Maame had to learn how to make her own moisturisers and make up. Back then, it was hard to reach cosmetics in Ghana, but as a beauty queen, she had to keep her skin beautiful and glowing for her competitions. She made her products based on family recipes that span over five generations. Maame learnt her recipes from her mother, who was a herbalist, who learnt from her mother before her.
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. She spent six years developing the texture, scent and quality of each product.
Our products are made up of 100% natural handmade skincare which takes you straight to the heart of Ghana.
Rose's family owns a Cocoa, Shea and Coconut farm, so all the main ingredients we use in our products are sourced from those farms. Our products were born from the harmony of ancient Akan traditions, a lot of love, passion and some heavenly exotic and luxurious ingredients.
We believe that the softness of our organically sourced ingredients 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.
We are a 100% positive about the healing powers of love, peace and playful lust. So we highly encourage you to practice all three separately or at the same time while using our magical creams and divine oils to enhance your daily life.
To the people of Ghana, time just doesn't exist. Love, peace, dance and beauty are all in the air along the streets of Accra to the powdery beaches. We try to channel all of this into our handmade and cruelty-free products, which represent the ageless beauty and elegance of African beauty queens.
Lastly, Rose believes in her grandmother's wise words that have formed the Ashanti philosophy:
"Beauty is simplicity".
