A story from mother to daughter...
I am Aimée Tenu Lawani and since I was 14 years old, I have been involved in several initiatives with social and ecological values that you will find below:
- Zam-Ké: luggage made from recycled water bags
- ViViFruits: natural fruit juices and sorbets
- Espace ViVa: eco-responsible leisure centre
- Farmers’ market: promotion of local products
- BeeFarmer: agro-ecological farm
The Kari-Kari Africa project was given to me by my Da, who used to be a soap maker, as was her passion for entrepreneurship. It is a great joy for our whole family to see our mother’s know-how revived through Kari Kari Africa. For our committed generation, I personally believe in our identity as citizens of the world, in our Africanness and in all that we do to return to our roots and to preserve our planet for future generations.
Kari Kari Africa fait son petit chemin…
An authentic soap factory in Togo
The Kari Kari Africa soap factory is an artisanal and traditional soap factory. We mainly produce black soaps and cold process soaps through traditional and ancestral processes. These are age-old processes that have crossed time and continents and our soaps are produced in accordance with international cosmetic standards.
Kari Kari Africa is also at the forefront of research with a modern laboratory that combines tradition and modernity in terms of healthy quality cosmetics.
You will recognise Kari Kari Africa soaps with our trademark handmade, with care and love.
All steps in the making of our products are done by hand. From the preparation of the ash water with the plant ashes, the work that is done on the shea and cocoa butters, the mixing, the pouring, the demoulding, the baking, the stamping to the packaging, everything is done with our hands and with love.
Through our commitments, we are also keen to promote the age-old know-how of local soap making that has been passed down from generation to generation by our grandmothers, our mothers, our aunts and our sisters.
We offer you products that are the result of the rich human collaborations that we have created throughout our entrepreneurial journey.
