Respecting Tradition, Supporting Communities
At Deluxe Shea Butter, we work with women’s co-operative groups for the processing of our organic and fair-trade Shea butter. Traditionally it has been the women who go and pluck or gather the shea nuts. The women sometimes have to travel as far as 17 kilometres on foot, and carry bags in excess of 40 kg on their heads while carrying their children on their backs. Working within the Shea trade is in many cases the only form and sole source of income for these women and their families.
The Deluxe Extraction Process
Supporting the Women of Ghana
Here at Deluxe Shea Butter, it’s the people behind the product who make it all happen. Our fair trade products are a direct result of giving members of the Ghanaian communities a fair go with a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.
