Shea Butter

Protection from the Elements

Shea trees dot the landscape in Burkina Faso, where hot winds blow sand and dust daily across the Savannah. To protect their skin from the harsh conditions, women have used shea butter for generations. Organized into cooperatives, they use traditional methods to harvest and extract the butter.

Ethical Sourcing

Since 2015, the Group has been working on projects aimed at protecting the shea tree, reducing the environmental impact of shea butter production while maintaining local skills. Today, over 10,000 women are working in this industry and are able to sell their butter at a price that is twice of a standard shea butter sold for export.
