Keeping with long held traditions, indigenous women still turn to the
African wild for all their skincare needs. Our Journey for beautiful skin begins
in Malawi where growing Fair Trade sugar provides clean water and education for
farmers’ children. Evaporated cane juice contains glycolic acid which breaks
down dead skin. We whip this naturally grown sugar into an emollient cream made
from skin loving, certified organic East African shea butter. This rare butter,
also known as nilotica, is sourced from a cooperative of women who live in war
torn Uganda. Many of them have escaped enslavement by the rebel army. Their
shea butter project has allowed them to buy homes and begin their own
micro-businesses. We next travel further north to Somaliland where local women
collect leaves known locally as qasil. This traditional treatment adds skin
softening and conditioning properties to our luxury scrub.
When in Egypt, do as the Egyptians do, and that is eat guavas, and so Tammie did. The fragrance of ripe guavas sends ones mouth salivating, good for those poor in appetite. Sweet, yet tart, subtly dry, men and women alike love to be pampered by pink guavas. Not surprisingly, Shea Terra Organics was one of the first skin care lines to incorporate nourishing pomegranate seed oil into our healthy skin care products.
Contains only: pure spring water (no recycled
water), Fair Trade Malawi cane sugar, certified organic nilotica shea butter,
volcanic stone, natural emulsifying wax, baobab oil, pomegranate seed oil, pink
