O&3 presents Sheanut Butter, Refined

Your slice of Africa! O&3 presents Sheanut Butter, Refined. This traditional Ghanaian product has been hand crafted by local women of the sub-Saharan Savannah-Sahel for decades, for both culinary & cosmetic purposes. The butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree that grow across Africa. It has grown in popularity in the cosmetics industry in the past decade. Similar in makeup to that of Cocoa butter, Shea butter is a healthy option for your body, both internally & externally. Rich in vitamins A, E & F, this butter is full of nutrients that aid in the production of collagen. It is considered one of the best skin nourishing ingredients hence its popularity in body butters & massage, it melts wonderfully into the skin. The sustainable story of Shea butter production is its greatest asset, providing solely women with a secured income for their family. The women will harvest, clean & press the nuts themselves (within their community) & then given the chance to negotiate their own price before it arrives in Europe for refining. This raw material has made significant positive impacts on communities within Ghana & delivering a new & stronger infrastructure in so many communities that were in need.
