Village Girl Owns #1 Freshly Handmade Shea Butter Business in Ghana

Hamamat African Beauty is making waves in the country’s business climate by being the first online-based retailer to ship freshly handmade shea butter directly from Ghana to the world.

The brand, known for its collection of natural African skincare products, was founded by proud Ghanaian native and former model and beauty queen, Hamamat Montia.

A dynamic individual and a source of inspiration for women all over the world, Hamamat is known as the Global African Ambassador with a passion for sharing Africa’s cultures and traditions to a global audience.

In 2017, she created ‘Hamamat African Beauty’, which offers authentic, handmade skincare products made with 100% natural ingredients from ancient African origins.

Hamamat African Beauty takes people on a journey on how Ghanaian ancestors, who had a rich and deep connection with the land, cared for their skin and beauty using ingredients provided by the natural environment. Indigenous plants and ingredients, used since antiquity by wise African healers, are carried forth to this day to make Hamamat African Beauty products.

The Golden Shea Butter and Safari Shea Butter are the brand’s flagship products. Carefully made by hand using ancient techniques, the Golden Shea butter has a load of benefits: it soothes dry skin and lips; eliminates wrinkles; relieves skin peeling after sunburn, insect bites, boils, wounds, skin allergies and diaper rash; decreases scarring; reverses stretch marks; and stimulates hair growth. It is also an effective treatment for Eczema, Dermatitis and other blemishes.

Equally sought after is the Safari Shea Butter. Apart from giving the skin a youthful glow, the Safari Shea Butter is high in anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties, which makes it the best natural ointment for arthritis, joint pains, muscle aches, bruising, swelling, etc.

Another popular product is the African Black Soap. Marta S. from Warsaw, Poland writes in her review, “The Safari Shea Butter is golden. I had a red rash on my arm. It was itchy and irritable. My friend suggested I use the Safari Shea Butter and instantly my rash began to heal. I was skeptical because I am from Poland and shea butter is not common. But I think everyone needs to know about this shea butter.”

Handcrafted in Ghana using ancient African skincare secrets, the products of Hamamat African Beauty are designed to soothe, heal, enhance and reveal the true inner beauty of one’s body, mind, and soul. Embracing one’s skin and natural beauty is Hamamat African Beauty’s fervent mission.

Today, the brand ships its products worldwide, making it possible for people of different cultures to experience Africa’s best kept, natural remedies.

“I couldn’t wait to get my products directly from Ghana,” says Amy Choi from Busan Metropolitan City, South Korea. “I first heard about Hamamat online through Instagram. I have been suffering from Eczema for a few years now and the flare-ups are horrible. I read the reviews and I am happy to say, no matter how far I am, I will always order Hamamat African Beauty. This stuff works!”

“This is such an excellent product I have been using Shea butter products for years however there is something really special about the ones from Hamamat African Beauty they really work!!! I shared the Safari Shea Butter with my sister-in-law who had hurt her back, she couldn’t stop thanking me for how much it helped. I tell you, man, it’s the best thank you,” says Andrea G. from California, United States.

Ghanaians, on the other hand, can enjoy same day delivery of these exceptional products. Before becoming an entrepreneur, Hamamat has always carried a deep love for nature and empathy for the people of Ghana. Through the Hamamat brand, she is able to empower Ghanaian women and children through her charitable projects and provide jobs to the people in her community.

With the advent of her brand’s global shipping, she is paving the way for other local Ghanaian businesses to follow her lead and tap into the global market.

Baking Oil – Melanin GLOW

Hello there Kings and Queens!

It’s time to BAKE YOUR SKIN – Melanin GLOW.

The long wait is finally over. Summer is here again! It’s time to set aside those chunky knits and thick sweaters and shove those jackets to the back of your closet.


Most women love summer because it is the time of the year they get to show off some skin. After being trapped under layers of clothing, summer is the time when we can finally let our skin breathe. Unfortunately, the harsh weather of the previous months have left our skin dull and dry. We feel insecure about wearing that trendy off-shoulder top or that cute mini skirt. Thankfully, there are natural solutions to restore your skin’s radiance.

Our Golden Shea Butter can soothe your dry skin like no other beauty product; and best of all, it can work for any skin tone. Having great skin is like setting a solid foundation for your dream house. To achieve your utmost beauty, you must start with your skin.  

When you have your skin healthy and moisturized, you are now ready to beat the summer heat with your fave fashion finds!  

To feel the summer in full swing, add SISAALA Baking Oil to your skincare regimen and get that sun-kissed look that spells out s-u-m-m-e-r!

We like to say here, it’s time to BAKE YOUR SKIN – Melanin GLOW.

SISAALA Baking Oil is made from a special mixture of shea butter oil, hibiscus, virgin coconut oil and indigenous West African herbs. This baking oil will make your skin glow and give it that beautiful tanned complexion that is highly sought after all over the world. Use it for tanning or to even out your skin tone.

We will be sharing more about our Baking Oil. It’ll be available this July!

Lots of love,

Hi there, Kings and Queens!

#11 – Shea Butter for Babies

We all want the best for our baby’s delicate and sensitive skin. Their skin needs to be protected and nourished just like our own skin. Shea Butter for babies is the perfect thing to use for the incredibly sensitive skin that they have, as it is protects, moisturizes, and strengthens their skin.



Moisturizing the skin is especially important after bathing, as the soap strips the skin of its natural protective outer layer. With

this regimen, you are safely encouraging the baby’s skin to renew its thin outer barriers and develop healthier skin as they grow. Shea butter for babies is shea butter for everyone! That’s what makes shea butter so great – anyone can use it, no matter the age, skin type or ailment.

Hamamat African Beauty Shea butter has the healing properties for many issues that babies might face, for example, diaper rash. Shea Butter has natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help resolve the irritations and activate the skin’s self-healing capabilities.

Let your babies know how much they are loved. Protect and prepare their skin for the future so they can proudly face the world with no worries about the health of their skin.

Shea Love with a Head Massage

Shea Butter Head Massage | Hamamat African Beauty

Hi there Kings and Queens!

#3 – Shea Butter Head Massage


Nowadays, it’s very easy to get caught up in so many stressful situations as a lot of us live very fast-paced lives. I, for one, sometimes get headaches, especially when I don’t get enough rest or when there is much to think about.

When I was younger, I was always taught by my parents to always find the most natural way to take care of myself. Thanks to their teachings, in situations like these, I know how to get relief by getting a head massage. What better product to use for that than our Shea Butter?

As a massage butter, it gives you the smoothest massage experience with the added benefits for your skin. By boosting the skin’s natural collagen production, your skin is led to becoming softer and stronger, as well as obtaining wrinkle reduction. So with a Shea butter head massage, you can help nourish and strengthen your scalp to all healthy hair growth.


Get your hands on this raw, natural product available below and experience this Valentine’s gift. With any order of a 9 oz shea butter, you will receive a travel size jar!  Share your shea experience with us!
