Mix our shea butter with a few drops of essential oil and slather on as an organic alternative to after sun. Thirsty hair and skin will drink it up in no time.
It can also be used as a cooking fat/oil, used by people from region its grown in for generations as a staple cooking ingredient.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
WHERE IT'S FROM
Native to West Africa, the shea tree has been harvested there for thousands of years. The trees’ termite resistant wood only grows in fertile, well drained soils in warm conditions. Nuts from the shea trees are a source of vegetable butter, which has been used as a staple cooking oil in the region for years.
Sustainable harvesting of the shea tree has been in practice for hundreds of years, simply because the importance of the tree to the locals has continued through time. The trees are respected and maintained by the farmers whose shea knowledge has been passed down many generations.
The popularity of shea provides a stable income to families and villages, and we only work with suppliers who pay their farmers fair prices and have good working conditions.
