How it started
Kaeme was founded in 2014 by Freda Obeng-Ampofo – a former Policy officer with a master’s degree in Public Administration from Sciences Po in Paris, France. She started making Shea butter products for herself, friends and family members since 2011. After returning to Ghana, she decided to formerly launch her beauty business. Kaeme means ‘Remember me’ in Twi, one of the local languages in Ghana. The brand soon gained a niche following through word of mouth, and quickly became one of Ghana’s best kept beauty brands.
Kaeme host a range of fragranced Shea butters and African black soaps. The brand source its raw ingredients such as Shea Butter, directly from women’s cooperatives in Northern Ghana. Its signature Goji Shea Butter and African black soap – rebranded to Eternal Shea Butter and Eternal African Black Soap, has proven to be Janet + George’s western customers best seller. It was quickly sold out on our website upon initial introduction. Another favourite among our male customers is Sandalwood Shea butter and African black Soap – rebranded to Urbane African Black Soap and Urbane Shea Butter. Each product is memorable and made with love. Kaeme products nourish both face, body and hair. Due to its use of natural and non chemical ingredients, it can also be used for children.
Whether you are looking to improve the health of your skin and hair, or simply want to start nourishing your face, body and hair with authentic and natural products, Kaeme is your brand. Proudly made in Ghana. Shop the range here at Janet + George.
