100 % ALL NATURAL AND ORGANIC SHEA BUTTER FROM NOTHERN GHANA : North Ghana Shea aims to produce and market high quality shea butter from shea nuts gathered in the wild by rural women in Ghana.

MOISTURIZER : Shea butter has the ability to soothe, hydrate and balance your skin. It is used as a moisturizer for dry skin and eczema, as a dry scalp treatment, for chapped lips and to help soften cracked dry skin on heels, elbows and knees.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY : Shea butter has natural anti-inflammatory properties that have been known to heal scrapes, cuts and burns; relieve sunburn and rashes; take the sting out of insect bites; and ease the pain from muscle fatigue and arthritis.
ANTI-AGING : Shea butter has been used for centuries as a wrinkle reducer. Shea butter contains essential fatty acids, along with vitamins A and E, which are imperative to maintaining your skin's elasticity and suppleness.
UNREFINED WHIPPED SHEA BUTTER : It is important, according to the American Shea Butter Institute, to make sure unrefined shea butter is used. Raw shea butter maintains its therapeutic qualities and will keep your skin moist and supple, whereas refined, processed shea butter loses almost all of its healing properties. But in its original state unrefined Shea butter can be hard and sometimes not so easy to apply on a larger skin area. If you want a creamier, softer and fluffier, you can use whipped shea butter cream. Whipping shea butter won't change its chemical structure. Its texture will be more appealing and volume will be increased.
