Visit Africa Through Bella Lucce!
You have to appreciate a brand that goes the extra mile to source ingredients from other nations, especially when it’s an independent brand like this next one, BELLA LUCCE. In addition to quite a few products, the line has four collections inspired by different parts of the world – Asian Indulgences, Rainforest Restorations, Arabian Odyssey and the latest addition, the African Adventures Collection. The creator of the line traveled to Africa six times over two years studying the natural botany and talking to the native women in a few of the continent’s countries like Ghana, Egypt and Uganda. The 8 products in the collection are the result. I tried the Moringa & Shea Cleansing Bar ($10/4oz @ bellalucce.com) from this collection and it’s made up of Palm Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Shea Fruit Butter and Avocado Oil, among others. There are no hard-to-pronounce or foreign-to-the-ear ingredients inside this one and each comes from the wilds of Africa!
And what this soap comes in is worth noting. Each is wrapped in a piece of bogolan cloth hand painted by the local women Mali, Africa in the nations traditional black designs with fermented mud from their Niger River. The tag attached to it suggests one find a special use for it and I will be sure to.
