The Story - Behind the Product

Desert Date Beauty Oil is an emollient skin treat from the women of Burkina Faso. The production of our Desert Date Oil is part of a conservation project aimed at protecting the remaining wild lands of the Pama & Singou. The trade off is protecting some of Africa’s last large animals in exchange for beautiful, glowing skin. We think that is quite a trade. Desert Date Beauty Oil comes from archaic desert growing trees often referred to as balanites. Desert date oil, also known as balanites oil, was one of the preferred beauty oils used by ancient Egyptians. Bottles of desert date oil were frequently found in the tombs of the pharaohs. Our Desert Date Beauty Oil offers skin nourishment from its large amount of a-carotene. It is rich in plant phyto-chemicals which can help to regenerate the skin. It is the perfect balanced oil for all skin types as it is light and penetrating, feeding skin without clogging pores or producing acne. It is a medium textured oil perfect for wearing under make up and heavier creams. It helps to increase the fluidity and elasticity of the skin as well as helping to decrease moisture loss of the skin. Desert Date Beauty Oil can be paired with Shea Terra Organics’ premium quality argan and rose hips oils for increased benefit of skin. 

A growing population has continued to put a strain on remaining forests in Eastern Burkina Faso. In need of land to produce vital crops such as maize and millet, local inhabitants continue to slash and burn the forests essential to the survival of several mega fauna. Nomadic cattle grazing, firewood collection and poaching place added strains of the fragile eco-systems of the Reserves of Pama and Singou. These reserves are rich with indigenous, wild growing flora providing sustainable, income generating opportunities. An organization was founded to pair wild growing ingredients with with local inhabitants in order to preserve the remaining forests- home to elephants, duiker, oribi and lions. Desert date trees are plentiful in the region. A project was set up to empower the local women to gather and press the fruit into an oil with anti-aging properties. Cash payments allow the women to purchase food supplies rather than further destroy wild life habitats. This region is currently the only region in Africa where the elephant population is increasing. Your patronage of Desert Date Beauty Oil not only improves the condition of your skin, but the condition of the women in a race to help save Africa’s remaining wild life.
