Our organic Shea butter is also UEBT certified. UEBT is a non-profit community that promotes ethical behavior when sourcing natural resources. They verify whether the purchasing of raw materials benefits human beings and biodiversity.
As 20 years pass by, until the first harvest of shea nuts, there were no shea plantations cultivated. Our Shea butter is made of wild grown shea fruits.
The crop starts in May and gets introduced by a traditional festivity. The collection period ends in October. Once the shea fruits are ripe, they are falling from the trees. Female village inhabitants are collection the wild fruits and carry them home. There the eatable green fruit skin gets removed. Afterwards the peeled nuts get sundried and packed in 80-kg-sacks before loading for transportation to the oil mills. Having arrived there the nuts get pressed; the created Shea butter gets packed and shipped.
As the raw material gets pressed in oil mills in its origin, the resulting added value lasts in the region. It contributes to an improving food- and income situation on-site. The female collectors also provide an essential contribution to the family income because they receive a higher salary as usual.
When the crop is over, price negotiations are carried out. All the villagers are taking part in it and the village eldest are involved in every decision.
Dried nuts are the source of Shea butter (approx. 45-50 % fat content). Shea butter contains valuable fatty acids, wax esters, phytosterols, triterpene, tocopherol and allantoin. The melding point is just below the body temperature.. Shea butter contains a high smoke point of approx. 210°C by nature.
