We live in a world where the way you look has become your business card, snap chat filters are the order of the day and reality TV has made the idea of beauty seem somewhat — monolithic. While designer clothes are great to wear, a perfectly laid lace front and a classic face beat are oh-so-necessary, this one thing is true; the list of beauty standards has become endless. So, when the scrolling stops, your day at the office draws to a close or your night out with your girls is a wrap every girl and every woman alike wants to know that she is enough. Enough beyond the power suit and enough beyond the likes. She is enough because her value and confidence is based on the fact that she knows and celebrates her most authentic self in her natural, well-nourished and radiant healthy skin, thanks to Peini.
Peini is a beauty disruptor that focuses on beauty the African way. There is an old adage that says, “in Africa nothing is ever wasted”. Every fruit, vegetable and oil has multiple ways it can be used. To this end, Peini cosmetics range provides the perfect combination of luxurious skin and hair care, formulated from 100 % natural ingredients. Ghanaian coconut oil, baobab oil, premium grade shea butter, and other natural plant extracts (essential oils) leave your body vibrant and glowing with nature’s caring caress.
Peini means “Gift” in Dagbani, the language spoken by the people of Dagomba, a tribe in the northern part of Ghana, where the shea nut is grown. Derived from our indigenous trees, plants, and fruits, Peini is nature’s special gift to the skin. Using time-honoured African beauty secrets, Peini boosts and reinvigorates the skin and hair while naturally protecting you from the harsh elements our bodies are exposed to daily.
Since our conception in 2012, Peini prides itself as being a socially responsible and environmentally-sustainable brand. As part of our eco-conscious practices, no product testing is done on animals and our ingredients are 100% organic and safe. All products are used by our team to make sure they are of the utmost quality. In this harmonious collaboration with nature, even if our products are consumed, they will not be harmful – it does not get more natural than that. Peini products are free from any chemical contaminants including parabens, toxins and synthetic oils and dyes, so any risk of an allergic reaction is also greatly reduced.
