Meet Gabriela

As a self-proclaimed “chief explorer”, I enjoyed extended travel throughout my life. I had a chance to see over 30 countries from Europe, Central and South America and of course, Africa. Some were short visits, others were places I lived in for some time. Ghana is one of the places I lived in for 3 and a half beautiful years and I must say that it is one of the few places in this world I will always call HOME. Apart from the warmth of the Ghanaian people I have discovered another treasure: natural skin and hair food in the purest form: SHEA BUTTER - a fatty substance obtained from the nuts of the shea tree, used in cosmetic skin preparations and food. 

So, I decided to take this treasure and use it for natural products across borders. It can be used as moisturizer, in lotions or simply just raw butter. Not only Shea butter is used for skin problems including acne marks and burnt skin. It can also be used as sunblock because of its natural SPF 6 and is rich in vitamin A, D, E and F. Of the Shea butter from several countries on the African continent, the Ghana Shea Butter is one of the most praised and searched for. 

Keeping in mind these many benefits of Shea Butter, I decided to bring it to you in its most natural and unprocessed form as I can. Therefore, I designed hand-made products to be used on your skin and hair. Every product on this website is 100% natural, cruelty free, and without any preservatives or artificial ingredients. Out of the ingredients that are used with our 100% natural butter, some include organic carrier and essential oils to add fragrances and even more benefits to the final product.

However, having the best products is not everything to satisfy customers. Keeping your privacy and safety as a priority, I use the best payment options including VISA, Apple Pay, Google Pay, MasterCard and PayPal. This is to ensure safe payment channels that do not compromise customer’s privacy and safety or expose them to the threat of being hacked or phished. However, if there remains any ambiguity with regards to this payment procedures or any other queries, feel free to get in touch with me through any of the social media handles including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or simply email me at gabriela@treasuresofwestafrica.co.uk.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoyed making them. I am always open to suggestions therefore don’t forget to leave a review!

Many thanks!
