Our Shea Butter comes to us exclusively from a collective of over 100 women within the Kperisi Village of northwestern Ghana. Kperisi lies close to the city of Wa, and at the doorstep of the sub-Saharan Desert — a biome of tropical grassland. Here they traditionally hand-make their luscious, therapeutic shea butter the same way their ancestors have for centuries.
Comforting, protective and profoundly nourishing, shea butter is a remarkably versatile ally for skin. This timeless ingredient was once traded to ancient Egypt to be used in their beauty creams. It now has worldwide renown and popularity for its remarkable ability to nourish, protect, beautify and soothe the skin.
