Who are we?
Bio Carato was born in 2019 from the desire to offer 100% natural cosmetic care products made by local artisans in Ghana, West Africa.
The two founders, a couple of passionate and engaged entrepreneurs, were inspired by Africa’s beauty secrets and the powers of African flora to design a range of face and body care products adapted to all skin types.
Naturalness and “consuming locally” are essential characteristics of the Bio Carato brand.
The products and their natural ingredients from Ghana
Composed exclusively of certified active ingredients of plant origin, Bio Carato products contain only between one and six ingredients, depending on the treatment. With its four skincare products, the brand offers the extraordinary virtues of plants such as moringa leaves, coconut or shea used for thousands of years by Africans.
Moringa, known in Africa as the Tree of Life or the Tree of a Thousand Virtues, has multiple benefits such as nourishing and moisturizing the skin thanks to its active ingredients: Omega 9, Vitamins A, B and C, Iron, Calcium and Zinc.
Coconut oil, which has an excellent reputation in terms of skin care, is ideal for nourishing, moisturizing and perfuming the skin.
Shea butter has been used for many years in African beauty rituals. Derived from the fruit of the tree, shea butter is rich in fat and vitamins A, E, F and D which allows it to nourish, protect, soften and regenerate the skin.
Cocoa butter, derived from the cocoa bean, is an excellent moisturizer and has antioxidant properties due to its high content of vitamins A, B, C and E as well as minerals.
Neem oil is known for its exfoliating, scrubbing and cleansing properties.
Lemongrass oil is known for its purifying properties and provides a fresh and invigorating fragrance.
Baobab oil, derived from the seeds of the most representative tree of the African continent, softens and restructures tight and dry skin.
Wild honey has a repairing action, it soothes, beautifies and deeply nourishes the skin.
Sea salt is a very effective natural exfoliant for the skin. It allows deep cleansing of the skin without damaging it.

Ghanaian craftsmanship at the heart of Bio Carato
All the ingredients used in the manufacture of Bio Carato products are produced, harvested and processed by hand in Ghana. Bio Carato is based on the unique know-how of the Ghanaians and their ancestral knowledge of plants to develop effective and high quality treatments.
In order to preserve this great heritage and to offer the best, the brand is committed to a remuneration policy that allows local producers to make a decent living from their activity. Bio Carato also has selected partners who are committed to a truly eco-responsible approach that respects their environment, as well as the livelihood and well-being of the producers.
Bio Carato goes even further in its approach to supporting local production with the design and manufacture of certain packaging by local craftsmen. Some packaging composed exclusively of wood is in fact hand-carved by independent carpenters in Accra, the capital of Ghana. Specialized in the manufacture of furniture, these craftsmen responded to the founders’ request and designed an aesthetic, light and practical container for the care of the brand.
