My name is: Dr. Naana Boakye.
I’m known for being: co-founder of Karité—a natural, non-toxic, shea butter-based skincare line—and owner of Bergen Dermatology practice in northern New Jersey.
I'm helping to launch: Karité! My medical background is specifically in dermatology, so I'm able to truly address skin needs. Our goal is to produce products that are safe. We carefully source our ingredients to make sure they provide maximum benefits and hydration to the skin without being irritating.
You can find it: Our products are currently available on our website at www.mykarite.com.
What makes it special is: Karité products are unique because they contain a high concentration of raw, unrefined shea butter that is cosmetically elegant. That’s extremely difficult to find. Shea butter is known for three A’s: anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antioxidants. Our Crème Mains hand cream combines shea butter with organic coconut oil and sustainably sourced palm oil—the unique combination of these three ingredients makes it a powerhouse.
One thing you can’t miss is: With Crème Mains, your hands won't be greasy and will stay hydrated.
Your body will thank you because: When you use Karité products, you can rest assured that you are nourishing your body and investing in true self-care.
