Making products by hand is pure joy

I was a very self-aware teen who wanted to create things with my own hands. I remember getting on my knees while in boarding school and opening my palms and asking God to bless my hands because I knew that I was a creative person. And as I got older, that desire to create things with my own hands heightened. I started by writing and blogging; and I would create dishes and cook meals while working under my mother’s tutelage who was and still is a chef; and years later, I would go into making natural products because of that passion to create with my own hands. And till this day, we make some of our natural skincare and hair care products by hand, especially our African black soap products. When you make things with your hands, it is pure labor of love and we put in utmost care into making our products by hand. At the fore front of our activities are our customers whom we want to provide only products that are safe and free of toxins; and our environment, which we must protect. When I make products with my hands, it is pure joy because it means that my dreams and aspirations have materialized and it means that I am helping feel a need for someone. How has your childhood dreams shaped your today?

Our eco-friendly initiave

ENE NATURALS PRODUCT REFILL STATION

“I spent my early years on a farm in rural Nigeria and tended to animals while planting and growing our own crops organically. Influenced by my grandparents who were local herbal practitioners, I had always known the importance of nature in our existence. At 15, I became the president of the Conservation Club in secondary school where I would work towards the preservation of trees and nature in general. I am a nature lover, which is why at Ene Naturals, we are committed to incorporating environmental sustainability into our organization’s culture. I am Ene Adasen, founder of Ene Naturals limited.”

Ene Naturals is a small business based in Lagos, Nigeria and we create all natural skincare and hair care products for the African skin. As enshrined in our vision, we are committed to creating products that are completely chemical-free and toxin-free. Which is the reason why as a responsible company, we will never make bleaching products or incorporate any chemical that is harmful to the skin or body in any of our products. And because we love the environment so much, we are always looking for ways to improve our processes to facilitate waste reduction, especially industrial waste which is the reason why we created our product refill station.

ENE NATURALS PRODUCT REFILL STATION
OUR PRODUCT REFILL STATION

By creating a product refill station, customers are able to walk into our store to refill their products or we ship the refill products to them directly to their homes. By doing this, we are encouraging our customers to reuse their product containers and to dislodge the idea of a single use container mentality. By choosing to reuse product containers and to refill their products with us, our customers are benefitting by saving 500 Naira because they are getting the products cheaper. We are able to accomplish this because by choosing to refill our products in paper packaging and pouches, we as a company, is saving such production costs as water, soap and sterilization, which is common with plastic packaging usage. By choosing to refill and use paper packaging, we are reducing water waste and manufacturing waste, which is a big deal for us. We are also saving on man hours employed in the actual production and packaging of products, which makes paper packaging and refills a better option.

And we are not just stopping there. When we decided to wrap our handmade soaps in cute paper wrappings with paper twine bows, we realized how much love we had put into creating our very cute soaps and saw another opportunity to reduce waste and save cost by recycling the paper trimmings into confetti papers for our gift baskets and gift boxes. We try as much as possible to reuse and recycle materials so we also recycle the printing paper on our labels into confetti papers for our gift boxes as well. Here is a video to show you how we reuse the paper trimmings and paper labels as confetti for our gift boxes and gift baskets.

We also pay our customers 200 Naira for returning our glass containers after use because by doing this, we are able to reuse our containers thereby reducing waste and reducing production cost. So both the company and the customers benefit from choosing to reuse and refill product containers.

We try as much as we can to reduce waste within the company and to recycle or reuse materials as much as possible. This is why when we receive raw materials from our suppliers in carton boxes, we do not discard those boxes but reuse them in packaging products to our clients. Our retail space is made principally of reused display shelves and decorative items rather than opt for a flashy, contemporary retail space. Our goal is to show to our customers that by adopting simple principles, we can all contribute to keeping the environment safe.
