Description

Artisans in Accra, Ghana, source this shea butter locally. It is hand-processed by two other groups that harvest nuts from shea trees. Ghanaians use shea butter for a wide variety of purposes, including cooking, moisturizing and as an anti-inflammatory. Shea nuts are very hard, and require multi-stage processing before they can be used.

In addition to the harvesting and processing of shea butter, and the production of the cream itself, this product provides work for fairly paid artisans who produce the ceramic container and the recycled glass beads used for decoration.

  • wonderful anti-inflammatory cream

    . . . . .

    I have been using shea butter for several years now. I love it for areas of skin that are inflamed. But recently I discovered that it replaces Chapstick beautifully. I actually prefer the pure shea butter to the one that has extra oils added (but the extra oils do prevent spoiling from dipping one's fingers in the butter). Yet, shea butter itself has some anti-bacterial qualities too. As a doctor, I recommend this product to my patients for "Chapstick" and for rough, inflamed skin.

  • fantastic gift

    . . . . .

    This made an excellent gift for a friend. The price seems fair for the quantity of shea butter and the cute little pot it came in. I'm very pleased.

  • Fantastic cream!

    . . . . .

    The consistency and feel of this makes it one of the best I've used as the weather gets colder and drier. I use it just after the shower and it keeps my skin moisturized for hours.

  • Better then I had hoped for

    . . . . .

    I like the fact it is natural and it feels so good. you only have to pat on a very tiny amount.

  • Awesome

    . . . . .

    I bought this Shea Butter because, I like using natural products. I have used it for a week on the bottom of my feet before I go to bed. I have problems sleeping and I think, it has helped me to relax and sleep better. I will have to buy more:)

  • Works great!

    . . . . .

    I had a patch of very dry skin on my hand. I applied the Shea Butter for a few days and it healed it beautifully. I love this product. It's a little expensive but I think it's completely worth it!

  • Feels Good

    . . . . .

    I was inspired to buy the Shea Butter after watching the video about how it was made. I am so glad I bought it! I love the little pot it comes in, and I love the way it make my skin feel.

  • My skin stays so moisturized.

    . . . . .

    I don't have an amazing story but I love the way my skin feels after using this cream. And I like that it doesn't wash off easily but soaks into my skin.

  • Burn treatment

    . . . . .

    My young son accidentally burned his hand the other night. You can imagine the tears! A friend had told me several months ago that shea butter was useful for treating burns as well as many other things, which is what prompted me to buy it in the first place to have on hand just in case. I was anxious to help my poor son feel better as quickly as possible. The thickness of the lotion helped me to cover the burned area completely and quickly. Within maybe 10 minutes, he stopped complaining that it was burning and hurting. The burned skin turned white within maybe an hour, and he never complained that it hurt again. I'll go right to shea butter the next time we have a skin emergency! After having used it just once, I feel it was well worth the investment.

  • Healing cream - beautiful container!

    . . . . .

    This shea butter cream really does heal. I bought it as much for the beautiful clay container complete with hand made glass bead. My hands are very sensitive to fragrances in most hand creams, but they love this shea butter cream. I keep three freshwater fish aquariums so my hands are in and out of water quite a bit. Hand sanitizers were making my skin raw and this hand cream healed them right away (look up benefits of shea butter -you will be amazed). I keep my cream with its handsome container proudly displayed with my African art objects. It fits right in! Seeing the beautiful recycled glass beads (from Ghana) at Ten Thousand Villages really peaked my interest in African made beads. I now have several African made Krobo beads (powder glass and recycled glass) and African Trade Bead necklaces.
