Our Fairly Traded Raw Organic Shea Butter

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 Raw Organic Shea Butter is 100% unrefined, as raw, natural, and as beautiful as you can get it. It retains all its natural content (vitamins A, E, F, minerals, proteins, and a fatty acid profile) to ensure that it is suitable for a variety of skin types and that it will help your skin retain its brilliance and elasticity.

Other products on the market offer 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 unrefined Fairly Traded Raw Organic Shea Butter.

The benefits of our Fairly Traded Raw 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 Raw Organic Shea Butter notice they have softer, smoother, healthier skin.

Our Fairly Traded Raw Organic Shea Butter naturally contains vitamin A and E. Vitamin A is important for improving a number of skin conditions, including, blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis. Vitamin E is a common anti-ageing ingredient that protects your skin.

What is the source of our Fairly Traded Raw 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.

Who should use our Fairly Traded Raw Organic Shea Butter?

Our Fairly Traded Raw Organic Shea Butter is suitable for a variety of skin types. Try replacing your current jar of skin cream with our product and see the difference. Keep a jar in your medicine cabinet, it can also be used to soothe the minor skin injuries that occur during daily life.
