Fair trade moisturiser

Life in Ghana

Ghana is a country in west Africa with 18.5 million inhabitants and an area of 238,500 square kilometres.

The country is rich in many important natural resources like diamonds, gold and cocoa. However, most of these are in the south of the country.

In Tamale, a region of northern Ghana, life is hard.

The one valuable resource that keeps the communities of Tamale going is the shea tree, which grows in large numbers across the region. Click on the next cog to find out how a moisturising ingredient is providing the people of Tamale with a lifeline.
