Certified Organic. Unrefined Shea Butter. Fair Trade Certified. Cruelty-Free & Vegan. 

Shea butter is used for making your own body butter, lip balm, concealer sticks, hair treatments and face masks, just to mention a few.

Also known as the African karite butter. It is expressed from the pits of the fruit of the African butter tree, which grows in Central Africa. It makes a hard bar of soap with a silky feel that is conditioning and has a stable lather. Shea butter is beneficial for treating dry skin, blemishes, skin discolouration, scars and wrinkles. This organic and fairtrade Shea Butter is collected with the help of women's cooperative groups to empower local individuals and their communities, and, in turn, provide employment and opportunity to create a sustainable quality of life.
