After years of clinical experience and research Phytocare produced the first petro-chemical free Papaya ointment.
"Knowing that many mothers use Papaya during breast feeding or even on their baby's bottoms it was important to ensure that there was no other harmful chemicals hidden within. Unfortunately and unbeknown to many people, a relatively high number of "natural raw materials" are bound to chemicals," says Baden.
When choosing raw materials Phytocare makes an enormous effort to ensure that they are organic and fair trade. Their papaya ointment contains shea butter harvested from the small villages on the savannahs of West Africa. This has an enormous positive cultural and financial impact on the lives of the villagers. Shea kernels are mainly collected by women who have used their earnings to build schools and health facilities throughout the villages of Burkina Faso.
At Phytocare they know that health is being at one with the environment.
