About

FOUNDER

Harlem born : Makeba-Guilan: Lloyd ( a.k.a. Keba Guilan) began blending and mixing essential oils and phthalate-free fragrances with shea butter as a therapeutic way to alleviate her chronic dry skin only to discover a convenient method of moisturizing and scenting in one easy step. Inspired by her 2006 travels through Egypt, Makeba pursued her curiosity and fascination for the fragrance world in the natural perfumery classrooms of the New York Open Center.  She furthered her education in the classrooms of the NewYork Institute of Aromatic Studies where she has received her certification in Aromatherapy and is a member of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapists, as well as honed her skills in perfumery at Pratt Institute under world renown perfumer Raymond Matts.  Makeba realized she had a passion for creating fragrances that people would love.  Butter By Keba was born from an innovative idea and passion to create natural, phthalate & paraben free skin care while offering classic plant-powered fragrance options in one product.

When we step out to the world we go nose first, said Sarah Lawrence college professor and author, Joseph Campbell. I hope you will take the opportunity to smell every blend. Each was designed to appeal to every nose by incorporating classic essential oils and fragrances that are familiar but paired to create something unique while stimulating curiosity.   Our mission is to bring people together through fragrance. “ - Keba

Note to customer

Our products have not been reviewed, analyzed or approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Butter By Keba creates fragrant blends using the technique of a perfumer from an aromatherapeutic perspective. While we hold certification in aromatherapy we are not medical practitioners nor prescribe our blends for medical purposes. We advise seeking the consultation of a medical professional for any medical issue you may be experiencing.

We are committed to building fragrance responsibly through mindful application and education. Due to the potential for certain chemical constituents to penetrate the blood brain barrier thus leaking into breast milk, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we advise against using products with Musk notes and Cinnamon Leaf. These include our Chateau, White Silke and Precious Sudan fragrances. Our Almost Unscented and Lavender Cami blends are very light and great for those highly sensitive to fragrance. Our fragrance compositions are collaborations of natural blends, essential oils, isolates and phthalate-free fragrance. Our base ingredients are plant-centered without parabens, sulfates and other complex preservatives.
