Our healing balms are made predominantly of organic unrefined Shea Butter
A thick, lustrous butter pressed from the seeds of the Shea (or 'Karite') tree, this oil contains high levels and a wide variety of phytonutrients, making it a superb skincare ingredient. Catechins and vitamin E provide powerful natural antioxidants that fight free radicals. Vitamin A helps with cell repair and regeneration. Other phytonutrients provide anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Shea butter is a superior moisturizer that offers long-lasting protection and hydration and offers benefits for numerous skin problems including dermatitis, eczema, burns, chronic dryness and other irritations.
You will find organic, unrefined shea butter in all our soap bars and in many of our other products.
We obtain our organic unrefined shea butter directly from the source - a local women’s co-operative in Uganda. This co-operative ensures that the collection and harvesting of the shea nuts is empowering 450 previously impoverished women and their families.
