Our Commitment

Ojoba Collective provides the highest quality, fair trade, natural plant oils to the natural cosmetics industry and our retail customers. We started as a humanitarian project in 2003, and have never strayed from the original goal:  helping to alleviate extreme poverty and empower villages in rural Africa, through the sustainable production and sale of green cosmetics and ingredients.

We’ve grown the company ethically, from the way we conduct business in Africa, to the way we treat our customers around the globe. We strive to be fair, green and sustainable each step of the way. We are 100% committed to corporate social responsibility.  

We also believe that actions speak louder than words, so please click on the links below to learn what we've been doing!
