Shea butter in singapore

Origin, Cultivation and Processing shea butter

The shea butter for Organic Potions™ Beauty Care comes from Ghana. In 2004, we provided the stimulus for an organically certified project in the region around Brong-Ahafo in the south-west of the country. 1,300 women from 12 villages are involved in the project, collecting the shea nuts from several protected, organically certified areas.

Why Shea Butter?

What sets shea butter apart from other seed oils is its exceptionally large healing fraction. This refers to the percentage of the important nutrients, vitamins, and other valuable phytonutrients that foster healing. Depending on the source, the healing fraction of shea butter ranges from 5 % to 17 %. (The larger the healing fraction, the better). By comparison, the healing fraction of other seeds oils is very small, in the range of 1 %.
Shea butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F. Vitamins A and E maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy. They are particularly helpful for sun damaged skin and to help prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. The Vitamin A in shea butter is important for improving skin conditions, including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis. Vitamin F acts as a protector and rejuvenator soothing rough dry or chapped skin and helps soften dry or damaged hair.Additionally, premium shea butter has properties that treat skin allergies, insect bites, sunburn and frostbite.

How does Shea Butter work?

Shea butter’s unparalleled hydrating property is due to natural moisturizers that are chemically similar to those produced by the body’s own sebaceous glands. Shea butter also contains healthy fatty acids. It is high in unsaponifiables (a type of fat) containing between 7-12%. This is one of the properties that make Shea butter so valuable in treating the conditions above. Shea butter easily penetrates the skin and will not clog pores. There is a high level of cinnamic acid which makes Shea butter a natural sunscreen. Shea butter has anti-inflammatory properties that make it useful in treating arthritis.Shea butter has powerful moisturizing, anti-aging, protecting and healing benefits to the skin. There are many uses of shea butter and it has been clinically shown to provide relief for various skin conditions.

The growth of the shea butter project in Ghana has been simply incredible. Back in 2011, organic shea butter did not exist anywhere in the world. We therefore initiated [a plan to achieve] organic certification. At the time, we were the manufacturer Afrobrong’s only customer and purchased all of its organic shea butter. Today, the company has developed into a stable supplier that produces organic shea butter for a number of customers.

We are now just a small one – [a position] perfectly in line with our aim of our initiative and support helping to create an independent and autonomous company.
