Ellie Bianca

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Growing up in Kenya, Evelyne was immersed in a culture of stark gender inequality that conditioned young women to believe that expectation and privilege differed between men and women.

Despite this, she developed an admiration for the resilience and grace of the women in her community. Their quiet strength coupled with their beautiful, healthy skin became a foundation of beauty for Evelyne that she knew she wanted to share.

Inspired by her daughter, Eliana, her rich heritage, and her passion for the environment, natural beauty and healthy living, Evelyne set out to help create a world where every woman has the opportunity to embrace and own her strength and beauty, inside and out.

Evelyne has personally developed authentic connections with producers through her 15+ years of working globally in Environmental and Social Sustainability, and Stakeholder Engagement.

Spending much of her professional experience in Africa, Europe, and North America, has allowed her to develop key relationships for sourcing natural, sustainable, and ethical ingredients of the highest quality.

It was through these connections that Evelyne observed the process of harvesting raw shea from the land and recognized the opportunity for an eco-friendly, naturally nourishing ingredient that also supported the women who were manually harvesting and processing this resource.

Ellie Bianca is the embodiment of Evelyne’s life’s work as an Environmental Scientist / Chemist, African-Canadian woman, and proud mother, and was established as a means to make an important difference that is powerful and sustainable.

PRODUCTS

Ellie Bianca products are centered around raw, unrefined African shea butter and oil, which are not only incredibly rich in skin loving properties but also come from the shea nut, which can be sustainably harvested and prepared. Along with the nutritious fruit itself, working with shea means nothing goes to waste.

Our shea butter and oil is sourced in person by our Founder, Evelyne Nyairo, and through Ellie Bianca it is our goal to bring people closer to where their products come from and in so doing bring people closer to each other and the environment. In addition to the shea butter and oil, the herbs, plants and botanicals that are used in Ellie Bianca products have been chosen based on their history of healing and fortifying generations around the world.

We are so proud to say that Ellie Bianca products contain ingredients that are:
Vegan

• ELLIE BIANCA BODY OIL CITRUS VERBENA

Ellie Bianca Citrus Verbena Body Oil is a luxurious blend of 13 perfectly balanced natural oils formulated to address dryness and boost skin's vitality while promoting the skin's natural cell regeneration process. This ultra-gentle oil awakens the senses and uplifts your spirits. It absorbs with ease for lasting hydration and can be used on the body, face and hair.

I absolutely love my Citrus Verbena oil, and I don't impress easily! I saw a difference in my skin (more even skin tone, smaller pores) in less than a week, and a little goes a long way. I love running the residual oil through my hair after applying it to my face. Also, Evelyne Nyairo is a business owner who cares about so much more than just her bottom line- and that's the kind of business I feel good supporting.    Mandy Smeets
