COMMUNITY TRADE SHEA BUTTER

From Ghana

Our founder Anita Roddick placed our first Community Trade shea butter order way back in 1994 after a visit to Ghana. She discovered the amazing, natural moisturising properties of shea butter and the inspiring women who produce it. 500 women from Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association produce our rich shea butter using traditional handcraft techniques in a lengthy 18-stage process handed down through generations. In addition to paying a fair price, we pay a premium for the women to invest in community projects. We are also founding members of the Global Shea Alliance, involving the whole industry in sustainability discussions.
