Why is the company called Naturally Tribal Skincare?
The name Naturally Tribal is significant as historically, people associate the word tribe with negativity, segregation, and otherness. We have used our name to flip this narrative by building a tribe of people of all backgrounds connected by their love of nature, their love for natural products and their love for our planet
What does Source to Jar mean?
We know that consumers are well informed, want to know where ingredients come from and want to ensure a transparent and clear supply chain. Our source to jar journey speaks to the traceability of our main ingredient (Shea Butter). It means that when you pick up one of our products, you can take the journey with us from our Shea Butter sourced in the Kingdom of Essan to the jar in your hand.

What does Clean Beauty mean to Naturally Tribal Skincare?
Clean beauty is currently an unregulated term, we define our clean beauty ethos as a focus on safe and effective natural ingredients that are fantastic for you and your skin. Our skin absorbs approximately 70% of what we put onto it, therefore we believe that what you put on your skin should be as important as what you eat. All of our products are chemical free, formulated without parabens and sulfates.
What do you mean by Trade Not Aid?
Trade not Aid to us ensures that we collaborate with the women of Essan by sourcing our main ingredients, including Shea Butter, from their community in an ethical and sustainable manner. We do this by providing the infrastructure needed to ensure quality, and the training that will help them progress.
What are you doing Essan?
We are currently building a factory in the Kingdom of Essan to allow us to ultimately employ up to 70 rural women, creating employment and empowerment. For us when you educate a woman you educate a family, a community and a nation.

Is Shea Butter Comedogenic?
Comedogenic simply refers to the ability of this ingredient to clog up our pores and noncomedogenic, meaning that it does not clog pores. There has been much debate, claims and disagreements as to whether Shea Butter is or isn’t comedogenic and with no actual research to validate either way, it is mostly down to personal and professional opinions. It all depends on your skin type, for some, it could clog the pores but for the majority, this is not the case. Some report that Shea Butter has helped manage their acne and others say its use led to a breakout. The human body is different, we are all individuals hence the approach to skincare is trying and finding the right thing for you.
Have your products undergone any testing?
Every single one of our products has been professionally developed and cosmetic tested. Each of our products comes with its own Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR)
