Djebess was born out of a passion for natural productss, body care, moringa and above all the sharing of ancestral traditions, conscious and slow living practices. Originally from northern Cameroon, Aminatou Ali Taiga, Founder & CEO of Djebess, grew up in a community that favors body care, beauty through traditions passed from mothers to daughters, sacred beauty gestures for sublimate the woman's body and which provide well-being on a daily basis.
This ancestral and family transmission is unique. It takes shape around sharing, body massages, skin care with natural oils and gestures of love to awaken awareness of the body, of inner and outer beauty. These body treatments have almost a sacred therapeutic character.
The name Djebess is a sacred name, a name given to her by her mother in memory of her deceased aunt and of whom she was the namesake. She practiced her beauty rites thanks to the miracle plants of the house: moringa, used in many ways, this versatile nourishing plant is prized for cooking, health and skin care. Moringa is one of the most popular plants in this region for its benefits and easy access. This plant with miraculous powers is also known as the miracle tree.
It was in Montreal that she developed her skills in the manufacture of natural cosmetic products, in particular through high-level training, collaborations and ongoing research in the laboratory. Aminatou recently developed a mini laboratory to test its formulations.
