    Brief History:

    It is recognized that the Pharaoh Nefertiti, the queen of ancient Egypt thousands of years ago, attributes her great beauty to the use of Shea Butter and its use extends to our days in the best cosmetic formulas.

    It is made from the fruits of a sacred tree called Shea. This tree grows wild in the savannahs of West Africa and is collected only by women following an ancestral ritual. This type of local handicraft production, managed by women's cooperatives, is the engine of the economy and the livelihood of miles of families in West Africa.
