Natural, Fair Trade Raw Unrefined Pure Shea Butter Suitable for Both Skin and Hair Care – from Mali
“Tulu”, the African natural cream for the skins that never wrinkles…
Shea butter is one of Nature’s wonders. It has been used for millennia by many generations of African people for skin care, baby care, healing and food. The Shea tree is considered sacred because of the bounty of goodness it can do for your skin, hair, beauty and health.
Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree, which grows in the savannah of Western Africa. The English name Shea comes from its Bambara name “sii”, which means sacred. As a sacred tree, it is treated with particular respect. Growing up to 60 feet tall, the Shea tree does not flower before it is 20 years old and can live up to 200 years, it is the ”longevity tree” that gives the “longevity remedy”. Shea Butter is a traditional gift for newborns, a sign of happiness. In the hot Savannah, Shea butter protects the skin from the sun and dehydration. For millennia, people have used it to protect their skin from the drying winds and sun as well as to heal many skin problems, minor cuts and burns. The Shea nuts are traditionally harvested by women.
Collect of the Fruits:
During the months of August and September, early morning at 4am, when the temperatures are still cooler the ladies walk to the forest to pick-up the fruits on the floor. A hard season for them, lots of hours of work each day combining working in the fields (a daily task) and harvest the nuts. The Shea nuts are crushed and boiled to extract the Shea butter.
