Shea Butter Benefits – Natural Skincare Solutions

Pure shea butter benefits.

Silky, luxurious shea butter is a skincare secret brought all the way from Ghana.  In Africa, shea butter is referred to as, “Women’s Gold.” Once processed, this special nut takes on a nourishing quality. It is filled with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which are critical for cellular restoration and moisturizing.

Shea Butter Cream from Ghana

This shea butter cream is 100% natural.  Hand-processed by women artisans in Ghana and packaged in a keepsake clay pot, shea butter is a simple pampering indulgence.  By applying shea butter daily, women often notice softer, more radiant skin (Some even see a difference after the first application).

Ten Thousand Villages’ Shea Butter Cream is a multi-functional, all-natural cream.  A very small amount goes a long way, so that 1.5 oz clay pot is sure to last a while.

What sets Ten Thousand Villages fair trade shea butter apart is that not only does the money go towards building a sustainable income for the women of Ghana, but the shea butter is 100% pure shea, while competing products typically include as little as 10% of the shea ingredient.
