With high standards of quality body care, authenticity and tradition is a state of mind at Agyei Shea.
Our raw shea butter is not mixed with any chemicals or any other unnatural ingredient. We use the shea nut and water to produce an unrefined grade A shea butter. Our product is free of alcohols and parafins. It's all natural, gentle, and safe for most skin types; including babies.
Packaging is just as important as the product. For this reason, we have chosen to use glass containers to avoid some of the known harsh chemicals and carcinogens contained in plastics. We choose to protect the integrity of our product and respect the labor intensive work that goes into turning the indigenous raw shea nut into a butter (used for the body and cooking). Dedicated Ghanaian women from Northern Ghana put love, time, and energy into producing a product that can benefit the world.
