Extracted from the nuts of the African shea tree, this nourishing refined, organic shea butter is rich in vitamins A, E & F, and has been hand crafted by local women of the sub-Saharan Savannah-Sahel for decades, for both culinary & cosmetic purposes.
Packed full of nutrients, this butter melts wonderfully into the skin, aiding the production of collagen, which improves skin hydration and elasticity. With powerful anti-oxidant properties, this natural emollient is particularly popular as an ingredient for homemade beauty recipes.
This ethically sourced butter is produced solely by women in Ghana to enable them to secure an income for their family. The women harvest, clean & press the nuts themselves and are also involved in the negotiation of their own price before it is transported to Europe for refining. As a result, this natural raw material has provided a stronger infrastructure for many communities in Ghana that were in need.
To keep the butter fresh, store it in a cool and shady location. This shea butter has a shelf life of 18 months.
