Elephas means Elephant in ancient Greek.
These gentle giants are under tremendous threat, along with their habitats.
We draw inspiration from these extraordinary creatures in order to find ways of protecting them.
The Shea tree is commonly found in these habitats and is threatened by extensive cotton farming, with little yield. This tree gives us one of the key ingredients in natural cosmetics, Shea butter. It doesn’t make sense that we let this rich natural resource disappear.
By increasing the value of the Shea tree for the local communities, we can motivate forest conservation, and therefore the protection of elephant habitats. ELEPHAS Paris® brings income-generating activities to various populations, especially women, because as the saying goes,
“If you invest in a woman, you invest in her entire family”.
The brand is a true social business that gives 50% of its profits to supporting the local communities involved in elephant conservation.
