For centuries Saharan African Shea butter has been known as “Women’s Gold” because it provided employment and income to millions of women across the continent.
Today’s world economy and mechanized industry is changing the workforce in this marketplace. But thankfully positive change is coming with organizations like the non-profit association, Union for Ethical BioTrade, which promotes sustainable business growth, local development and biodiversity conservation.

The anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties of Shea butter help with irritated skin, razor burns, and rashes making it ideal for under-arm deodorant.
Shea butter penetrates your skin without clogging your pores, perfect for Body Butter. It’s rich in fatty acids as well as antioxidants and aids in the skins natural production of collagen to help renew skin cells and maintain skin elasticity leading to stronger and firmer skin.

Safe to use if you have tree nut allergies! A study by the University of Nebraska found that shea butter doesn’t contain the proteins that usually cause allergies.
