Black Soap Production Center (Adenta)

Global Mamas Dandy Lion Black Soap is a traditional African soap produced by Naasakle Ltd, owned and founded by Eugenia Akuete. Through the production of black soap, Eugenia provides dependable, well-paying, and supportive employment for many women and men in Adenta, an area of Accra. While this work has an immediate positive impact on their lives, it also touches the lives of their families extending across Ghana's many regions.

Eugenia Akuete founded Naasakle, a shea butter production company, in 2002. In testament to the power of her high quality products, dedicated customers, and growing consumer awareness of the benefits of shea butter, Naasakle's production grew from 50 to 3,000 pounds in three years. Despite the growing success of Naasakle, Eugenia misses her children who remain in the United States, and at times she misses how smoothly things seem to run there. "You can do business without so many surprises!" she chuckles. But what matters more to her is helping those truly in need and building the strong relationships that ultimately make a difference in people's lives.
