--->Nilotica Shea Butter™

At SheaPet, we use Nilotica Shea Butter™ exclusively. It is certified ORGANIC and is a FAIR TRADE product. It is wild-gathered and cold-pressed by cooperatives run by Ugandan and Sudanese women. Access to new markets has dramatically increased household incomes and reinforced the conservation of the shea tree in these areas. Sales of SheaPet™ products help sustain these cooperatives and support FAIR TRADE.

--->Shea Butter

Nilotica Shea Butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree indigenous to the Nile Basin in Central and Eastern Africa. Trade in shea butter dates back to Cleopatra's Egypt and shea has been used throughout Africa as a traditional remedy for thousands of years.

Shea butter is sought after for its therapeutic properties and as a rich moisturizer for extremely dry and irritated skin. It is highly effective for treating many common skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and rosecea in humans. Shea butter can also reduce wrinkles from photo-aging, improve skin complexion, and heal minor ailments such as sunburn, small wounds, and cracked skin.

--->ORGANIC Certification

Over 2,000 women of the Northern Uganda Shea Processors Association (NUSPA) finished the rigorous organic certification process. With the new organic certification, NUSPA shea butter products will be able to compete globally in the natural products market.

NUSPA received certification in the fall of 2006, after a long training process with The Shea Project, and an inspection with Ugo Cert on behalf of CERES and the Uganda National Bureau of Standards. CERES is one of the world's most respected organic certification bodies based in Germany.
