Over the last decade we’re seen LOTS of trends dominate the Beauty, but the grooming world as well, with many of these, maybe not surprisingly coming from Japan and some specifically, Korea. However, as the decade changes, get ready for the twenties and A-Beauty. Yes, Africa is where the latest upscale, ethical innovations in beauty and grooming are coming from. Think of incredibly recherché brands such as African Botanics (as sold on Net-a-Porter), which harvest the continent’s natural riches and also ethical stars like the social enterprise initiative Organic Savanna.
Now leading this hot trend is R&R Luxury, a beautifully clean and ethical skincare collection created by Ghanaian entrepreneur Valerie Obaze. The sustainable collection is powered by 100% natural Shea Butter Oil, an indigenous African wonder ingredient that has been employed in natural remedies for centuries. This magical ingredient used by R&R Luxury products is proudly farmed in Ghana by a dedicated women’s co-operative which alleviates rural poverty and creates long-term employment opportunities for rural women and young people.
R&R Luxury products are packed with indulgent, ultra-hydrating ingredients that are incredibly gentle on the skin, drenching it in all of nature’s riches. The brand is also vegan and clean, containing no chemical nasties such as SLS, and all formulas are packaged in recyclable plastic so the impact on the planet is minimal as well.
