Our Ghanaian, unrefined Shea is a heavenly creamy, soft and silky Shea that is hand-made in rural Ghana. Using traditional methods, the crushed Shea nuts are roasted over an open fire so the finished butter has a mild smokey smell.

We purchase our Ghanaian Shea from a collective whose mission is to help eradicate poverty through the empowerment of the rural women of Ghana. As the manufacturing process is traditional and requires only basic equipment the collective has quickly been able to improve the lives of over 1000 women in rural Ghana and more are being assisted every day.
Please note: due to the artisanal and unrefined nature of this product, it is not uncommon to find foreign matter in the butter. The colour and texture may also vary.

Suggested Uses:
Lotions & Creams: 3-5% | Balms: 5-100% | Bar Soaps: 3-6% | Hair Conditioners: 2-5%

Easy to use

I brought this by accident thinking it was the refined shea butter I had previously brought. This is a bit gritty but is softer and easier to smear onto the skin than my previous one. I'll probably stick with it
