Bubune Skincare is a manufacturer of shea-based bath and beauty products. All our product are paraben-free and plant-based. As part of our corporate social responsibility, we have started training females in cosmetic production. These women pay a nominal fee and are taken through the science of formulating body lotions, body butters, lip balms, clay masks and soap making.
Participants are first taken through the theory of skin science, cosmetic toxicology and good manufacturing practices (GMP). Once the theory is complete, they are allowed to enter the lab wearing PPE’s where they get to experience the practicality of the ISO standard in skincare manufacture.
The feedback we have obtained so far has been very good with all the participants expressing gratitude for receiving the training. We started offering the training because we realized that Ghana has a major skills deficit. We would like for Ghana to not only be an exporter of raw materials but also have the capacity to produce high quality finished products. The training is our way of bridging the knowledge and skills gap and creating more entrepreneurs
