ORIGIN : The history of shea butter as an invaluable cosmetic traces back to Ancient Egypt, where Queen Cleopatra always kept in stock jars of pure, unrefined shea butter. Today Shea Butter is known as “women’s gold” because it is a valuable source of income for women in the West African community.
HOW IS IT MADE? Shea Butter comes from an indigenous African tree called Vitellaria paradoxa. These are wild-growing trees producing tiny, almond-like fruit that every May start falling on the ground. Villagers harvest the fruits, separate them from the nut, then boil and let the butter float to the surface. The butter is then milled and filtered for impurities, packaged in huge blocks, loaded on large boats, and shipped to our Austin, TX manufacturing facility for packaging. We are a proud woman-owned company, we pay above fair trade and above minimum wage, and are devoted to delivering the highest quality products to our wonderful customers.
WHO IS IT FOR? We can say with confidence that Unrefined Shea Butter is for everyone and for every skin. It is loaded with vitamins A, E, F, Antioxidants, and Essential Fatty Acids (Linoleic and Linolenic), it is known to reduce eczema, skin rashes, even out skin tone, soften and nourish your skin. It is non-comedogenic and perfect for those affected by acne who are looking for an effective and truly natural solution for their skin.
