About Us

Brown Earth was founded in 2003 with the objective to buy Grade A Shea Butter at fair prices, with the intent to formulate first class Shea Butter based skincare products for a worldwide audience.

Our product development approach means…

  • • Ingredients used in any of our products must be wherever possible sourced from a fairly traded source. We actively work with various ethical groups and local communities to conserve natural resources, and also actively support indigenous and rural development projects.
  • • NEVER test products on animals, nor do we use ingredients from animal sources.
  • • Always considers the consumer and their needs above all else when developing Brown Earth products.
  • • Develop Shea and Cocoa butter skincare products blended with natural herbs, essential oils, plants, salts, mineral, and flower essences.

Many product awards later, this mindful product development approach means we have built a strong reputation for skincare products with unparalleled skin protection, nourishing, moisturising, repairing, revitalizing, cleansing properties it’s all in the name ……. BROWN EARTH.

Today Brown Earth has extended this wholesome ethical development concept to other cooperatives and craft communities struggling to bring non - food & food products to a wider world market.

  • • Teas & Beverage
  • • Bags & Baskets
  • • Ethical
  • • Apparel
  • • Lights & Lamps

We hope now you understand our business concept and what we do, how we do it and why we do it, you will try some of our award winning products, and remember we put you our customers first.

Finally, we are very open to any ideas and suggestions (constructive ones please), be it a new product, or cooperative we could be working with, please contact us at ideas@brownearth.co.uk. Thank you.

Yours sincerely
