Our Fairly Traded Raw Organic Shea Butter
Authentic Raw Shea Butter is hard to find, and harder still if you are concerned with ethical purchases. The decline of African culture among African nations is in direct proportion to corporate experience, therefore we encourage you to buy Raw Shea Butter and other products from “Fairly trading” companies such as the Akoma where the purchase of this wonder product helps sustain village life and supports the women and children of the community who live off of the profits of their Raw Shea Butter production. The Akoma Cooperative provides traditional jobs to the Ghana village of Pusu-Namogo; giving them the means to keep their village alive and healthy.
Do It Yourself
When purchasing our Fairly Traded Raw Organic Shea Butter remember also that you can “mix” it yourself. Add your favourite fragrance oil to make a lustrous body moisturiser. The oil will hold the fragrance to the skin much longer than an alcohol-based perfume. Add “tint” to make it a tinted moisturiser for the face. Need to tame the ends of your hair before a social night out, take a pinch of our Raw Shea Butter and rub it between your fingers then apply to the ends of your hair. It is also great as a conditioner for the health of your scalp.
It is a versatile product and far healthier than the petroleum-based products that most companies put out. Moreover, when purchasing our Raw Shea Butter from Fairly Traded, organic suppliers like the Akoma Cooperative you are putting your money where your heart is.
