My name is Amandla Bartholomew and I am the founder, maker and the director of initiative of Bartholomew Sisters, an indie natural vegan skincare brand.
Culture is skin deep for me as I first learned how to make homemade body creams in West Africa, ten years ago. Such early experiences not only strengthened my awareness of my Ghanaian heritage but especially helped me embrace the beauty of unrefined pure shea butter. Learning about these rich, hidden treasures of the earth further served to promote my budding palate for an alternative healthy lifestyle. In the coming years, I would hope to fully step forward in pursuit of this newfound way of life.
