Akoma Skin Care

Akoma manufactures and supplies fair trade beauty and skin care products.

Akoma UK works with the Akoma Cooperative Multipurpose Society in Bolgatanga, a poverty-stricken area in the Upper East Region of Ghana. Unemployment is high here and there have been few opportunities for the people in this village to improve their lives.

Akoma has been working here since 2008, helping the local community improve their job prospects, their education and their health. It is their belief that they can do business in a way that benefits everybody – from their cooperative workers to the customers buying their products.

By building a cooperative in Ghana to help local people, in particular women, they are providing them with an opportunity to rise out of poverty. They are also keeping traditional production methods and the community's knowledge alive.

By adhering to Fairtrade guidelines, Akoma represents a new breed of companies that focus on fair prices, good working conditions, sustainability and fair terms of trade.
