Sugar Town Organics
Many Caribbean customs were birthed from the teachings and inspiration of our Ancestors. This is true for Anastasha Elliott, co-founder of Sugar Town Organics, where she has crafted proprietary botanical formulas using family legacy recipes.
Sugar Town Organics was created out of our own experiences as a family spanning 4 generations. The products that make up our various brands were initially created to sustain and to provide healthy alternatives due to low income and social constraints that impacted livelihood. Spurred on by a run in with cancer in the early 90's, my mother chose to fight the natural way turning to her family teachings and crafting small batch products for aid.
Anastasha tells this story of what got her interested in formulating, "At the age of 12 I experienced my mom battling cervical cancer using nature and all it offered. She won that battle in a short space of time and that experience got me thinking about the power of food. My research led me on a journey of discovery and birthed in me a desire to help others live healthier lives by offering products that were healthy for them to use. As I grew I decided I wanted to create not just healthy products, but products that can transform the skin and hair, help women of color to feel better about their hair and skin thus engendering self confidence and helping people live happier, healthier lives."
In 2015, Sugar Town Organics launched Yaphene, it's first line of body care products quickly followed by its food brand Flauriel Foods as a way to create a circle of sustainability in production and reduce food wastage.
