Shea butter has been a hidden secret for years. Many know the benefits of coconut oil and even cocoa butter but Shea butter is not as widely known. Shea butter is full of vitamins A&E and are wonderful for the skin. It is one of the best skin moisturizers around because the moisturizers in it are the same as the oil in our skin glands. Shea does not clog pores and it has been known to help reduce wrinkles, acne, stretch marks and even wounds. These wonderful benefits are where the Shea tree got its name: the Karite tree which means tree of life.
Shea butter is used in a variety of beauty products from Eu’Genia Shea. It can be found in conditioners, chap stick,soaps, and body moisturizers. Shea is derived from the nut of a tree and then is often combined with other ingredients.
Most products in the store usually have 25% or less Shea butter in the content. This minimal amount is enough to claim they have shea but not enough to give any benefits to the skin. The EuGenia Shea company makes a Shea butter that is 95% pure. A product this pure will have many skin benefits. They offer a variety of products from everyday needs to dermatological. Any of these products would be a great gift to anyone but especially a mom since the company also supports women through job training and above average pay.
The Company hires many women in Northern Ghana. EuGenia pays higher than average wages to the workers who gather the nuts. This was done by the founder Akuete. She named the company after her own mother. Her mother runs the company that supplies EuGenia with its shea nuts. Helping more than 700 women in Norther Ghana by supplying them with training and higher paying jobs is very important to both Akuete and her mother.
