October 28, 2014

SeKaf Ghana Ltd, producer of TAMA natural cosmetics, recently received the “Indigenous Product of the Year 2014” at the prestigious Ghana Made Awards ceremony. On October 25, the second annual awards ceremony honored 26 exemplary Ghanaian companies for quality products made in Ghana.

Senyo Kpelly is the CEO of SeKaf Ghana Ltd and also serves as an Executive Committee Member of the Global Shea Alliance. After receiving the award, he said, “We are delighted that our hard work has been recognized. This justifies our call for the nation to go natural and consolidates our message to preserve shea trees.” TAMA Cosmetics produces hair and body shea oil, shea butter soap, moisturizing black soap, body lotion, and hand cream.

Mr. Kpelly also noted, “As well as containing numerous therapeutic ingredients to make our skin and hair beautiful, the shea tree also generates income for communities and presents an alternative to urban migration. Using TAMA products can actually support the alleviation of poverty in parts of northern Ghana.” SeKaf Ghana Ltd buys organic shea nuts from over 1,600 women and purchases the shea butter produced by the Kasalgu Cooperative at the SeKaf shea butter village in northern Ghana. Its TAMA factory employs around 30 local people.

The Global Shea Alliance is proud that our members are working to empower women shea collectors and strengthen the shea industry in their home countries and abroad. Congratulations again, SeKaf Ghana Ltd and TAMA Cosmetics!
