Our Shea butter
Our shea butter is extracted from the nuts of wild shea trees from the so-called shea butter belt in the Otuke district in northern Uganda and is rich in character, complex in depth, colour and completely natural. Shea butter contains vitamins A and E as well as the “skin” vitamin F, is pleasantly scented, absorbs quickly and has a creamy and even texture.
When using our shea butter, you will also benefit from the cinnamic acid esters, triterpenic esters and oleic acid esters, which have anti-inflammatory properties, stimulate skin tightening and elasticity through the formation of collagen, prevent the skin from drying out and can protect it from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Properties & benefits
By establishing standardised processing systems, we have achieved to optimise the quality of our shea butter. This requires that only hand-picked, high-quality shea nuts are processed for its production. Our cold-pressed shea butter is produced in a gentle process using German oil presses and a chamber filter system. All machine parts that come into contact with the shea butter are made of food-grade stainless steel, which guarantees the high quality of the end product. We currently have the capacity to produce more than one tonne of shea butter per day!
