Virgin Organic Shea Butter is derived from the nuts of karite trees grown in the savannahs of the “Gold Coast” of Africa. Karite trees, or shea trees, take between 20 and 50 years to mature and regularly live to be 200 to 300 years old – their long lifespan could partly be due to the fact that the destruction of karite trees is prohibited in many parts of Africa because it is such a valuable resource.
Due to the large population of women employed in the production of Virgin Organic Shea Butter, it is sometimes called “women’s gold”. These women have enjoyed the benefits of shea butter for many, many generations – and now you can too with our Virgin Organic Shea Butter!
