SaWaShea welcomes you on this platform to find out more about the world of Shea, its virtue and cultural richness. You will discover information about SaWaShea, its products, from their production to their use.
SaWaShea works with a collective of women in northern Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), West Africa, to offer you a variety of handmade, high-quality, organic, fair and direct-traded Shea Butter and Shea products.
This initiative focuses on the well-being of all: your well-being as well as the socio-economic upliftment of the women with whom SaWaShea works.
Shea Butter (“si tulu” in Bambara and "karité" in French, derived from the wolof word "ghariti") is a source of natural antioxidants (rich in vitamin A and E), traditionally used in West-African countries as a natural source for smoothing the skin, healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, as a natural resource for cooking, etc..
In order to have a sustainable impact, SaWaShea does not only sell Shea products but also offers knowledge-sharing programs about the world of Shea such as its provenance and history.
