WHY ARE WOMEN OBSESSED WITH SHEA BUTTER?
Our pure, unrefined shea butter is produced by women in Ghana, West Africa, where the shea tree/ Karite tree naturally grows. Unrefined shea butter is used for an endless amount of uses by South African women: the number one reason is for deeply moisturising skin and moisturising natural hair.
Pure, unrefined shea butter is also known as Women’s Gold because women in communities across West Africa are able to make a sustainable living extracting the rich oil from the shea nut and producing it for women around the world. Purchasing fair trade shea butter like ours is a way of supporting and empowering communities of women.
SHOULD I PURCHASE THE IVORY SHEA BUTTER OR THE YELLOW SHEA BUTTER? WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Pure, unrefined shea butter is often an ivory/ cream colour. If shea butter is white, it is refined/ processed/ filtered which means essential nutrients are missing. This shea butter is also bleached to produce the white colour and remove the natural nutty smell of pure, raw, unrefined shea butter.
Yellow shea butter is sometimes shea butter that has been coloured with turmeric or with the the bright coloured yellow shavings of the Borututu tree.
HOW SHOULD I USE PURE, UNREFINED, RAW SHEA BUTTER?
Though shea butter is in solid form, with a little warmth, it instantly melts into your skin, work it into your skin, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.
Apply a small amount to the ends of your hair and the roots, work the shea butter into your hair. Get great tips on moisturizing your natural hair in our “I’m Natural Now What?“.

If you are allergic to nuts, shea butter is not for you as it produced from the shea nut, native to West Africa.
