Founder and Chief Mixer
It all started with a few jars, a desire to share with others and a passion to make a body cream that nourished the skin and awakened one’s senses. So Freda Obeng-Ampofo started mixing and making a few creams for her family and friends, but this was not just any cream. Using the finest amounts of Ghana’s golden shea butter, coupled with 10 years of hand-making experience, Freda whipped-up shea butter so light and pure, and delicately infused them with memorable aromatic oils that undoubtedly left one longing for more. And, pretty soon, friends and friends of friends wanted more. A few years later, KAEME was born.
KAEME is a high premium African beauty and cosmetics company that specialises in personal and skin care products offering a range of natural shea butter and liquid black soap products — all handcrafted using essential oils and natural ingredients.
Named after the Akan phrase meaning, “forget me not” or “remember me,” KAEME has quickly become unforgettable, taking the African subcontinent by storm.
