"If you can't eat it, you probably
shouldn't put it on your skin."
- Sahra Deer, Isankofa Founder -
iSankofa is an all American skin care company that makes effective, cruelty-free, all natural skin care products. Founded by Sahra Deer.
iSankofa products were created out of love and concern and the driving passion to remove harsh chemicals from our deodorants to our everyday skin/beauty products.
Our founder, Sahra first came up with the idea when she was pregnant with her first born.
Sahra was adamant about finding a chemical-free deodorant safe enough for her and her child while breastfeeding.
She was aware of the dangers of aluminum that may be found in most deodorants, later enlightened, she had learned that small amounts of the toxins enter the bloodstream that can later result in anemia (decreased red blood count or hemoglobin), Alzheimer’s, Breast Cancer, bone disease, and memory changes.
As for pregnant women, case reports suggests that daily exposure to large dosages of antiperspirants that contain aluminum, causes bone damage and extreme tiredness.
That’s when the passion ignited! She then knew that it was her job to come up with a safe, all natural, EFFECTIVE deodorant, and that’s when iSankofa was born.
After the success with her deodorant She later started adding more natural, home-made beauty products to her line. Check us out!
