Our cold pressed, unrefined shea butter nilotica is wildcrafted, sustainably sourced and produced by womens co-operatives in Kenya. Wild harvested kernels are harvested and processed in Kenya – providing a commercial outlet and a sustainable income for the community. It is a traditional product and has been hand crafted by local women of Kenya for decades, for both culinary and cosmetic purposes. The sustainable story of nilotica production is one of it’s greatest assets and provides women with a secured income for their family. The women will harvest, clean and press the nuts themselves (within their community) and then they have the opportunity to negotiate their own price before it arrives in Europe for filtering and cleaning. This raw material has made significant positive impacts on communities within Kenya.
Please Note: Shea Butter contains a natural substance which is similar to latex and it’s use should be avoided by people with a latex allergy.
