ABOUT OUR INGREDIENTS
Shea Butter is extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. Rich in vitamins A, E and F, this butter is full of nutrients that aid in the production of collagen. It is considered one of the best skin nourishing ingredients. The shea butter used in our soap has been sustainably produced. Hand crafted by local women of the sub-Saharan Savannah-Sahel, it provides solely women with a secured income for their family. The women will harvest, clean & press the nuts themselves (within their community) and then given the chance to negotiate their own price before it arrives in Europe for refining. This raw material has made significant positive impacts on communities within Ghana and delivering a new and stronger infrastructure in communities that were in need.
