Shea butter has many uses and benefits from skincare to cooking oil. However, there is another benefit shea butter provides for women in Ghana: the ability to supplement their income to feed and educate their children.

The shea butter sold by 24K Shea is produced in a partnership with a women's cooperative in Ghana, Africa. We are proud of this partnership and the fair trade economic stability it helps provide. Before you visit our online store, let us fill you in on our fair-trade shea butter, the women's cooperative we work with, and how our shea butter can help benefit you.

Our Fair-Trade Women's Cooperative

The women's cooperative that we have partnered with provides the highest quality shea butter possible. For years, the women in Ghana have had to resort to intense labor in order to have enough money to support their families. Many of these women also had to grow crops, like millet and groundnuts, to make ends meet.

Cooperative fair trade agreements like ours have enabled these women to focus on shea butter production without having to worry about their financial situation. We feel our fair trade shea butter is the least we could do to help these women.  

Raw and Wild Crafted Shea Butter

Not only is our fair trade shea butter high-quality, it is also remarkably versatile. While the most popular use of shea butter is for skincare, there are a number of other benefits shea butter can present.  

Our fair trade shea butter is also effective at treating dry, itchy skin.  Not only can shea butter help treat dry skin, but it can also be used daily to prevent skin from drying out and becoming itchy.

Skincare is not the only benefit you can reap from fair trade shea butter. Hair can also benefit from the nourishing properties of shea butter, which will leave your hair healthy and lustrous. The secret to shea butter's success is in the essential vitamins and fatty acids found in our fair trade shea butter. Vitamins A and E can help to strengthen hair and prevent split ends. Shea butter can also be used to help soothe burns and chapped lips.
