'Tiossan' is a social enterprise that sells luxury skincare products produced in Senegal. While many people are interested in buying ethically produced products, the brands have yet to become mainstream. This company seeks to take ethical production one step further, while also protecting the skills of local artisans.
Tiossan is a luxury skincare brand based out of Senegal. The company was started by Magatte Wade as a way of creating local jobs and protecting valuable aspects of local culture. As a result, all of the products are based on the same ancient recipes and natural botanicals Wade and other Senegalese women grew up with. Some of these products include soap made from Black Seed Oil, body wash scented with jasmine buds and moisturizers infused with Quinoa Protein.
Wade is currently running a crowdfunding campaign in order to sell even more skincare products produced in Senegal.
