Organic premium cultivation

We source our shea butter from several countries in East and West Africa - including Ghana, where we work closely with the Shea Savannah Fruit Company (SFC).

Shea butter is known in Africa as shea butter or "women's gold". The collection and processing of butter is traditionally in women's hands and is the livelihood for millions of women and families in one of the poorest countries in the world. Since 2012, we have been supporting two women's groups in Burkina Faso who produce our high-quality raw organic shea butter by hand.
