How It Meets Our Value Standards: Baobab Fruit Powder

Why We Love Kaibae: They harness wild, forgotten African crops to improve microbiome health. 

About Kaibae: Kaibae is a microbiome wellness brand that harvests wild ingredients of the African Savanna important to preserving biodiversity. Founders Dr. Luc Maes, Thomas Cole, and Barbara Berger Maes were inspired by the Baobab tree, once considered a lost crop and known by many as the “Tree of Life.” The trio turned to these lost crops as a basis for Kaibae, seeing wild plants as powerful catalysts to improve people’s health and offer economic development opportunities to the local harvesters in Ghana. Kaibae’s mission is to simultaneously create daily rituals that build and support a healthy microbiome in your gut and skin, all while supporting local communities and economies. 

More On The Fruit Powder: Baobab fruit powder boosts gut health, an excellent source of prebiotic fiber, bioavailable vitamin C, antioxidant polyphenols, and minerals including calcium, magnesium, and potassium.


What You Should Know: Baobab fruit powder is 100% pure organic baobab fruit powder from a single origin. It promotes gut health and digestion, aids in weight management and blood sugar balance, boosts immunity and protects collagen strength.

How it Meets Our Values:

  • Women-Owned: Kaibae is co-founded by Barbara Berger Maes. 
  • Clean Ingredients: By using natural, plant-based, cruelty-free products that avoid harmful ingredients.

Behind the Brand: Dr. Luc Maes (a naturopathic doctor), Thomas Cole (a botanist humanitarian based in Sub-Saharan Africa), and Barbara Berger Maes (a curator, marketer, and project manager) combined their passions and experiences in the natural health industry to create Kaibae, a well-being and health-focused brand built on the forgotten wild ingredients of Africa.
