“Delivery was fast than expected. Oh wow the smell alone is breathtaking. I can't wait to start using it. By the way 1kg for that price is way cheaper than the ones I’ve seen in some shops. I will order again soon.” Beata K.

“I have tried a ton of different lotions, potions, and balms for dry skin. Coconut oil seems to sit on top of my skin and made it really oily after application - let's just say you could see your reflection in my face. I was just about to give up and lament that fact that my flaky elbows and velcro-textured heels would be part of me forever, until ... SHEA BUTTER! Not only did this help with my skin's dryness, it also left it smooth for hours without an allergic reaction! I've since experimented with adding essential oils to my raw shea. Let the journey begin!

I'm also a huge fan of supporting women-owned businesses as well as those with an added mission: to help communities grow.

Highly recommend this product to anyone with skin and those who would like to know that their purchase is making a real difference to actual people.” Christine B.
