NKU is the local Ghanaian term for shea butter; it is known for its ability to nourish and moisturize the skin. The NKU line is intended to provide skin and lips the best possible care during the winter months when the weather is especially unforgiving. The idea for the body butter was conceived by Alice when her sister was pregnant with her first child. Alice wanted to make a body butter with organic ingredients that could be used throughout her pregnancy. Organic shea butter was her primary ingredient, but she researched other oils that also provided benefits for the skin. This mix of ingredients became the foundation for the brand.
