Poapoa produces a 100% plant based artisan soap bars, shampoos and body washes with a fresh take on fair trade and sustainability. Products are produced ‘at the source’ in Africa and SE Asia driving transparency standards and responsible sourcing. We work directly with smallholder farmers and local producers (predominantly female workers), in Ghana, Kenya and the Philippines to create finished products, at source. The focus is on the highest quality plant derived natural ingredients which are also hand blended in small batches.
We focus our attention on what’s in our formulas, so our soap bars are made only with shea butter and coconut oil (not palm oil) to create a more ethically conscious premium soap that has a positive impact on the environment and has enhanced moisturising qualities.
We take the same approach with our shampoo and body wash range, which is 100% plant based, waterless (nearly all body care products water as the first, sometimes up to 70%!), replacing chemical surfactants with coconut-derived alternatives and swapping harmful synthetic fragrances with aromatherapy grade essential oils.
