Shea Butter has an outstanding high skin restoration component, above 8% as compared with other seed oils. It has a high portion of unsaturated fats for all day moisturising. It contains natural sunscreen. It is suitable for all skin types and all ages and has dry skin, eczema and stretch mark healing properties. Allergies are extremely uncommon. Cleo Organics Shea Butter products are 100% natural, chemical free, and vegan.
Shea butter is used in cosmetic products and in the food and confectionery industry worldwide. It is an important cacao substitute in chocolate. The current methods of producing shea butter unfortunately involve significant wood consumption and therefore deforestation. This amounts to ten kg of wood every one kg of raw shea butter. To put this in context, around three million people in Burkina Faso alone are involved in processing shea, from picking the fruit to boiling the kernels.
Together we are organising and modernising shea butter production into a dynamic force for good. We are collaborating with the Burkina Faso Government for nationwide replanting of natural parklands, building Eco-centres with cleaner, renewable and water saving production methods, and a hi-tech, exclusive, quality control program. Packaging is fully recyclable.
