Versatile, organic and fairtrade, this shea butter brings great benefits all round. Read on to find out more...
Unrefined shea butter is a fantastic product with a multitude of uses. As a natural moisturiser - you can add your favourite fragrance or colour tint - it is far healthier and more eco-friendly than petroleum-based products on the market. It is renowned for its health benefits too, being effective against skin inflammations, burns, scars, stretch marks, fungal infections and small wounds so a jar in the medicine cabinet seems a good idea. This wonder product can be used in the kitchen too if you run out of cooking oil.
The shea butter is produced from nuts of the Karite tree, harvested by the Akoma Cooperative in the Ghanaian village of Pusu-Namogo. The nuts are crushed, roasted, churned into a paste, kneaded then heated; then the precious oil is filtered off and cooled to form the butter. Purchase of this butter supports the local women, children and the elderly and helps sustain healthy and productive village life.
