Community Fair Trade shea butter

Intensely nourishing for dry skin and hair

Shea butter has been used for generations to help Ghanaian women protect their skin from the dry Saharan winds. Its rich texture and high fat content makes it intensely moisturising, which is good for skin and good for the community. Every 200ml tub of Shea Body Butter is packed with the butter of 36 shea nuts. It’s a lot. We counted.

We’ve been working with Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association in Ghana for over 25 years. Over 600 women from the association use traditional techniques handed down through generations to handcraft the shea butter that fills our favourite Body Butters.

It was our founder, Anita Roddick, who started this partnership, and it’s something we’re really proud of.

Very moisturizing

Skin Type: Normal
Age: Over 45

I used to use L’Occitane ultra rich moisturizer and this is the only product that has compared to the former. Much more affordable price point especially when on sale. Smells great and provides day long moisture to dry skin.

Reduced quality. Shame shame shame

Skin Type: Very Dry

The quality is reduced, it flakes, reduced smell and subtly reduced quantity. Why trick customers. If you’re going to increase price , at least keep the quality and quantity.

Scent Changed

Shea Body Butter

Skin Type: Normal
Age: 16 - 25
Time using product: 1 week
The scent is insanely weak compared to the original, and just seems like a really bad dupe of the original (that you wouldn’t spend your money on, even if it was a 1/20th the price.) I would expect much better performance from something even half the price of this. On a moisturizing level it’s not the worst but not comparable to the old formula. All in all don’t get this if you love the old product, especially if it’s for the scent.
