“We are an all-natural skincare brand for women created by African women.”

The sustainable and natural African plant-based skincare brand, Nokware (meaning “truth” in a local Ghanian language), is a tribute to the recipes passed down from co-founder Tituwa Ahwoi’s great-grandmother and the herbs, oils, and plant ingredients used in the products. Ingredients are sourced from local women’s cooperatives and the brand, founded by Ahwoi and her friend, Thato Tau, in 2017, is backed by African women who do everything from strategy to financing to manufacturing and processing. Products are packaged in biodegradable bamboo or recyclable calabash with natural jute fibre covers.
