Connection Is Everything
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.
