MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — Out of Africa, which is a line of natural and vegan skin care products using 100% pure, unrefined shea butter, is sponsoring in November the Shine On Sierra Leone’s Cash & Rocket VolunTourism Trip Sierra Leone, which will launch the building of the first and only secondary school in the Bongema Village.
This journey also will include visits to Shine On Sierra Leone's program sites, including participation in building The Muddy Lotus secondary school. "This event brings women from around the world together for a common cause, and it is a privilege to support this initiative and help the people of Sierra Leone rebuild,” Out of Africa CEO Victor Lulla said.
Out of Africa also sponsors two charitable projects by donating a portion of their sales to The Benin Education Fund and Shine On Sierra Leone.
The Out of Africa product portfolio includes bar soaps, hand and body washes, body butters, lip balms, lotions, creams, body oils and shea butter tins. The line harvests and crushes the shea nuts available while supporting several women's cooperatives in Benin, West Africa. Their shea butter, known as the "Women's Gold" of Africa, is made by hand in order to maintain maximum healing and moisturizing properties.
