About this shea butter

This wonderful organic, unrefined shea butter is as pure as it gets. It is produced the way it has been done for thousands of years. Each nut is singly selected and the production is done with care. We sell it with pride, because it provides important income for the people in Northern Ghana.

Organic certified unrefined shea butter

This traditional hand-crafted natural shea butter is organic certified by Skal. It is the highest quality you can find. The shea nuts grow in areas with no human activity that can harm or contaminate the shea trees. For example The Wechiau Community Hippo Sanctuary: a large area in the north of Ghana that is organic certified specially for the shea. The production, done by hand, is also organic certified.

 Traditional hand-crafted shea butter

Traditional hand-crafted

We get our organic, unrefined shea butter straight from Ghana. For thousands of years, women have extracted shea butter from the nuts of shea trees (Vitellaria paradoxa) that grow across Africa’s Savannah. The trees don’t grow on plantations, the nuts are wild picked. This traditional production method results in soothing, moisturizing pomades and soaps that treat and restore skin unlike any other product. When the shea butter arrives in The Netherlands it is filtered with a professional filter to make sure it is 100% clean.

Socially responsible

All our shea butter is produced in a socially responsible way. We ensure value addition at source is maximized: this shea butter provides jobs for women in poor rural areas of Northern Ghana, the women who collectively harvest the shea nuts themselves and produce the shea butter.

Unrefined shea butter of the highest quality

This shea butter is of a high quality. Because this shea butter is unrefined it has the characteristic fragrance and ivory color. The butter contains fatty acids such as oleic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, behenic acid, and palmitic acid. The unique fatty acid profile of this shea butter, coupled with the butter’s high level of non-saponifiables, makes a highly effective emollient, especially for very dry skin. It is rich in vitamin F, a vitamin for repairing skin. Shea butter is also known to enhance skin elasticity. Because of those qualities shea butter is used more and more in the cosmetics industry. And like cocoa butter, shea butter is also a healthy edible fat and used in food preparation.

Our shea butter is pure, natural and hand-crafted. Each season is different and no shea nut is the same. This may result in small dissimilarity between different batches.

With the melting point ranging from 31˚C – 45˚C, this shea butter is solid at room temperature.
