Aviela started in 2007 after Patricia Monney, the founding director, visited her family back in Ghana along with her husband, Chris and daughter, Charissa. This is Patricia's story.
Dry sensitive skin is a common skin problem but it can be managed with the right natural skincare routine. Our products are made with pure plant oils blended using traditional African methods. All of the products in the Aviela skincare range have one thing in common – 100% pure shea butter as the main ingredient. No silicones, no parabens, no petroleum, no mineral oil, no artificial colours, SLS free – just 100% pure natural raw shea butter.
Aviela makes skin care products using a very high concentration of unrefined raw shea butter, blended with other natural oils to offer optimal benefit to the skin. We always start each product formulation with unrefined Shea butter and select other oils that synergise and augment the moisturising, nourishing and softening properties of shea butter to make amazing products for your daily skin needs.
Voted one of the best body washes for sensitive skin
Try our top rated liquid black soap voted one of the best body washes for sensitive skin by The Independent.
"Aviela’s Black Soap is a rather distinctive product, as it is not really soap, contains a high amount of raw shea butter, and is entirely free from synthetic ingredients.
It can be used on the face, body and hair – and is so moisturising that it is recommended for shaving on extremely sensitive skin also. It is scentless, and a little goes a long way. Traditionally used in Africa (it’s made in Ghana), this product is a real standalone in terms of the anti-itch qualities and natural contents."

Shea Butter Benefits for Dry Skin
Pure raw unrefined natural Shea Butter has many benefits for dry sensitive skin. The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturising. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils. Due to its natural properties, shea butter is anti-inflammatory calming skin problems like acne, eczema and psorasis. Shea butter also aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and elasticity.
