Over a decade ago Shea Terra Organics' founder offered the world shea butter straight from Africa sought after to decrease scars and stretch marks, inflammation of joints and to heal difficult wounds. The butter was sought after by those afflicated by psoriasis so they didn't have to use steroid creams. It was sought after by parents with infants with a rare skin disease that caused skin to fall off, sufferers of eczema, severe dry skin that even doctor prescribed creams would not get rid of. People flocked to Shea Terra Organics for highly effective butter at an incredibly low price. The honest prices Shea Terra Organics offered was because although this butter was so amazing, it was also amazingly cheap in relation to what it was being sold for on the market. These high prices meant that women in Africa could not sell their butter which they had tons of. It meant that people across the world could not benefit from a butter that changed lives. Since then hundreds of companies have arrived on the scene and even Shea Terra Organics' original low prices have been far undercut. But Shea Terra Organics continues to bring forward over a decade in shea butter experience offering only the highest quality butter available.
Shea butter is collected from many parts of Africa and processed in many ways, often under highly unsanitary conditions. Highly refined butter greatly decreases potentially dangerous pathogens in butters often processed with unclean water. However, for maximum skin care benefits unrefined butter is preferred. After reviewing dozens of samples of shea butters from across the shea butter region Shea Terra Organics has selected a premium version we have coined the Gold Standard based on medicinal quality and hygiene of the butter.
Shea Terra Organics' Shea Gold Virgin Shea Butter is produced by a group of collectors in Ghana. This virgin pressed butter is machine pressed for maximum hygiene and purity. The butter is a beautiful light yellow color due to its high vitamin content and highly hygienic extraction process and still retains its light nutty aroma.
About Shea Terra Organics
Not only do Shea Terra Organics' skin care treatments assist in preservation, they are also the backbone of economic sustainability for many hardworking families across the continent. Since early 2000, Shea Terra Organics has worked closely with cooperatives and conservation groups to introduce Africa's time-tested ingredients to the world.
Shea Terra Organics was the vision of Tammie's quest to create markets for natural products from third world countries, which would help alleviate poverty while preserving diminishing habitats. Sufferers of skin ailments across the world sought out Tammie's therapeutic grade shea butter products because they were amazingly affordable at a time when shea butter was sold at hundreds of dollars per pound.
Realizing the immense impact that a single ingredient like shea butter could have on the world, Tammie Umbel began seeking out other rare and indigenous ingredients that could enhance or compliment the benefits of shea butter. Working closely with cooperatives, scientists, conservationists and non-profits, Tammie actively seeks out ingredients little known outside of remote parts of Africa. Not only are these time-tested ingredients highly therapeutic, they also bring income and awareness to preserve natural habitats, which would otherwise be destroyed. Shea Terra Organics was thus rebranded in a quest to reveal Africa's ancient skin care therapies -- in time to preserve them before they are lost forever.
