With the ushering in of a new year brings in the opportunity for new beginnings it’s a universal ritual that every time we hit a new year it’s the time for something fresh to begin in our lives it’s the universal gift of a new beginning. In the words of G.K Chesterton
“The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose: new feet, a new backbone, new ears and new eyes,”
We at Sankofa truly believe that this year will be the year that we offer something fresh and new and ‘step up our game’ so to speak and that’s exactly what we intend to do. We have new products launching this year, along with a more interactive social platform. We hope that you will enjoy your journey with us through 2018 and we hope to offer you the highest standard of custom, care and product ranges.
We also have a new face joining our team, Mrs Priscilla Olatunde BSc, MSc, (ANutr), who is a qualified registered nutritionist. Sankofa values itself as a high-quality provider of shea butter products and oils and Priscilla will be on hand to share expert advice on healthy lifestyle and natural beauty care, and a guide on how the natural products we design and provide at Sankofa will aid you in becoming “the healthiest version of you”.
Here are a few words from our new resident nutritionist and health advisor.
I’m so excited to be joining the Sankofa team, and believe it or not I absolutely love all things shea butter! I’m a 12-year naturlista sister and going strong YES! (fist in the air) And shea butter has been my beauty staple for maintaining my soft 4C curls. As you know I’m also a qualified nutritionist. I have a BSc in medical biochemistry and an MSc in Public Health Nutrition along with a strong passion for health and natural remedies. I hope that my experience and knowledge will be a great source of benefit and help to any of you who are unaware about the natural benefits of any of our products, (and there are so many!)
We now live in a time and a world of quick instant fixes especially when it comes to beauty we moved further and further away from nature and all things natural and towards more synthetic preservative and chemical laden fixes. Which believe it or not tend to bring us out in unknown rashes because of the added chemicals (some of us haven’t made the link yet!).
The media tells us that if Lancôme/Estée Lauder come out with a £50 vile of facial cream to give you the perfect complexion it must be worth it! So, let me be the first to say when it comes to beauty and health mother nature knows exactly what she’s doing! And there are so many health benefits of natural products like shea butter and natural oils, for our bodies that so many of us have forgotten about.
I hope that through 2018 I’ll be able you to arm you with more knowledge to make better choices. I also hope that the year brings you all health peace and prosperity in all that you set out to achieve. Myself and the Sankofa team will be working hard this year to provide you with a service to meet your beauty and health care needs.
“Dream with your eyes closed, but live your dreams with your eyes open”
Have a wonderful January!
The Sankofa Team
