Hand extracted by Akoma and refined and deodorised in Europe
Cosmetic use only
We are proud to confirm that our shea butter products received both Fairtrade certification (from the Fairtrade Foundation) and organic status (from the Soil Association) in 2009. Our Fairly Traded Pure Organic Shea Butter is refined using natural clay and is as beautiful as you can get it.
Other products on the market offer highly refined white shea butter. Such products have been stripped of their nourishing properties and supplemented with extra ingredients to replace those lost in the refining process.
Be kind to your skin and try the nourishing goodness of our Fairly Traded Organic Shea Butter.
The benefits of our Refined and deodorised Shea Butter
Renowned for its health benefits, shea butter has been used by Africans for thousands of years. It is unusual from other cosmetic products in that it actually encourages your skin to absorb moisture from the air ensuring that your skin becomes softer and stays moisturised for longer. Regular users of our Fairly Traded Shea Butter notice they have softer, smoother, healthier skin.
What is the source of our Fairly Traded Organic Shea Butter?
Shea butter comes from the Karite tree, also known as women's gold™. This tree grows in the Savannah regions of West Africa from Senegal in the west to Sudan in the east and onto the foothills of the Ethiopian highlands.
