The Mimaami Organics Story
Skincare from the hands of African mothers, to the hearts of mothers everywhere.
After seeing the benefits of shea butter, I knew I had to share it with mothers everywhere! As a mother myself, I searched tirelessly for topical ointments to address my daughter’s eczema. My mother, who lives in Ghana, reminded me of the power of shea butter, used in my family as a moisturizer for generations. This led me to try shea butter and discover its life-changing benefits.
Mimaami means my mother in the Twi language native to the Ashanti Region of Ghana, where our shea butter is derived from. Therefore, motherhood is the best expression of Mimaami Organics.
Welcome to the Mimaami community.
WOMEN IN GHANA AND THE SHEA BUTTER HERITAGE
Mimaami is creating a community with women in Ghana. Our collaboration brings their knowledge from this beautiful ancient shea nut tree to women everywhere, helping heal their skin.
Shea butter is also known as Women’s Gold. This work, taught to women by their mothers and grandmothers, is a source of income for them and their families in Ghana.
As a mother and entrepreneur herself, Mildred works with women in Ghana, valuing their passion and hard work.
From Ghana with Love.
Mimaami Organics raw shea butter is ethically sourced from Ghana, where women-led co-operatives are responsible for collecting and refining the shea nut to its silky-buttery form. Mimaami is equally committed to re-investing in these same women in many ways, including teaching best practices in sustainability, entrepreneurship and leveraging their collective talent to share the power of shea to communities around the globe.
In our most precious moments and every season, nature can lend a nurturing hand.
