An incredible skin food shea butter is rich & creamy, packed with vitamins A, E & F & pure tree goodness!

Shea Butter is also applied to nourish the skin & is thought to possess its own sunblocking powers. Nutrient rich, it is easily applied & sooooo softening! Ideal for parched, hungry or very dry skin it is also great for rubbing into babies bottoms!
Unrefined, unbleached & totally unadulterated, this wildcrafted, organic & fairly traded shea butter is produced by womens co-operatives from Ghana, West Africa using harvesting & crafting techniques that have been used for thousands of years. Free from any chemical processing, this shea butter retains all its natural goodness, creamy colouring & natural nutty aroma. It is a far cry from refined hard, white shea butter which is literally processed to death!
Fairly traded with producers in Ghana, this organic shea butter is an important resource for local communities. The producers harvest shea nuts from wild Karite trees. Over 94% of the producers are women who have an extensive knowledge of the butter & its production. Regardless of their indigenous knowledge, women are excluded from mainstream employment because they do not have a formal education. Shea butter provides a valuable & sustainable source of income to these people & ensures better amenities for their communities.
Just before going to bed, slather your feet in shea butter, slip on a pair of old socks (to save your bed sheets!) & in the morning your feet will be baby soft!
