Shanell Edwards' Profile

About

Welcome! My name is Shanell Edwards, I am the founder of Zabana Essentials (Pronounced: Zab-Ana Essentials), located in San Diego, California. Zabana Essentials got its start when I began my quest to find natural-hypoallergenic bath and body products that would not irritate my sensitive skin. I was a college graduate, attempting to start my career in the workforce and was on a tight budget like many and found it difficult to afford many of the well-known natural products on the retail shelves.

It is now my mission to offer Natural - Vegan - Human Friendly - Cruelty Free Cosmetics that are not only effective and nurturing for the skin, but enjoyable, attractive, and aroma therapeutically pleasing! I’d like to be able to reach individuals who may not fit the stereotypical natural products consumer of the past, but people just like me. People who are seeking healthy, non-intimidating alternatives, for their everyday lifestyle.



What does Zabana mean:

I often hear "What does Zabana mean?", "That's a unique name." Zabana means Savannah in the Native American Taino dialect. What is special about a Zabana to us? A Zabana is a grassy plain eco-system that may contain an abundance of herbaceous plants that lend benefits to us humans. For centuries therapeutic oils have been extracted from natural plant matter to promote good health and well-being. All Zabana Essentials products are of plant derived origin, and every formulation we use the essence of herbs, whether it be through the use of dry herbs or essential oils, herbal or vegetable based body oils and butters. I believe it is vital to our health that we responsibly utilize the nutrients provided to us by mother earth, as there is an abundance of gifts that exist in nature.
