Find out why we are so passionate about what we do

Our journey began in 2005, while seeking a natural solution for our boys’ dry & eczema prone skin. It led us back to our homeland, West Africa, to the savannah, the source of shea butter.  We were touched by the lives of the women who gather the nuts to produce raw shea butter. lack of access to education and good health care keeps them in a perpetual cycle of poverty despite the abundance of beautiful, natural resources that surround them.
We aspire to make a difference. Our success is their success, and this keeps us motivated. Income from fairly traded shea production can provide a better life for women and their children. We are inspired by the beauty, strength and dignity of the women who harvest & process the shea butter we use in our production.

Shea Radiance represents the full circle of giving that uplifts women all the way through the value chain. from seed to shelf. Together we can make a beautiful difference in the lives of women and their communities
