October 12, 2020 0 Comments

However, now we’re making our way back to a new kind of normality, we think it’s about time we helped you out with a handy how-to guide for when you’re reaching for the beauty bottles each morning and night.

Shea butter is oiling up its own chain of supply and fortifying the fields in which it grew, anointing the planet and its people with a more cohesive, conscious future. But, how does using shea mean showing up for women and wildlife in Western Africa?


From caressing the complexions of ancient Egyptian royalty to cushioning the pockets of some of the poorest African communities, shea butter has been bettering lives for thousands of years. It has the same chemical makeup as sebum, thus effortlessly mimicking the body’s own natural hair and skin lubricant, while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in our cells. While improving skin health may seem – on the surface – why we love shea here at Tropic, the merits of shea tree harvesting take root right at the heart of our ethical epidermis.

It’s the little things that make a big difference when we commit to making the world a better place. That’s why we’ve got a few ideas about how you can keep loving your little Joy Jars when their Tropic treasures inside are no more…

  • Make a mini terrarium.

  • Fill with shiny shells.

  • Fill with bath salts and essential oils for a luxurious, languid moment in the tub.

  • Grow your own gratitude jar – write down things you are thankful for and pull them out when in need of comfort.

  • Store some beads to make jewellery for friends and family.

  • Keep dried herbs and spices in cute labelled tubs.

  • Store loose earrings or buttons or hair pins.

  • Make your own jam.

  • Store your seeds for the garden, or even better, pot a few in here and see how they grow!

  • Use to shake and serve salad dressings.

  • Light a candle inside.

Teach The Unreached

October 8, 2020 0 Comments

The value of education weighs heavy in many of our pockets, but going to school means more than just punctuation and equations – it’s the formula for the freedom to choose.

What did school mean to you? The feeling of your friends rallying around you with reassuring touches and warm, gleeful grins when you said something funny? The golden hue of relief and pride when you’d score a goal, or manage a nifty catch on the playground? One person giggling at the teacher in class, and the whole room erupting with the unstoppable, blissful roar of a gaggle of giddy children? Wet play and hop scotch and fizzy drinks at school discos? Questionable rice pudding on plastic trays? The “we’ll never live this down” array of costumes in school performances, or playing the recorder (really badly) in your bedroom? 

Although school isn’t the same for everyone, the universal importance of Read the rest
