Shea Terra's journey began in 1999. A lifelong quest for purity and a burning desire to preserve ancient beauty rituals led Shea Terra founder to create the never ending line.
Our Secret Ingredients
African Black Seed:
From the Nile Basin to Ethiopia, this ancient seed oil is more potent here than anywhere else in the world. With over 100 active constituents the oil has been used to improve health, skin and hair conditions.
Ugandan cold pressed shea butter offers many of the same benefits as its western counterpart, but in a soft, easy to apply texture. The rare butter provides skin with hours of dry skin relief as well as does wonders for stretch marks, wrinkles, and even brittle hair.
Kigelia (Sausage Fruit):
Lab studies have shown Kigelia Africana to destroy melanoma cells. Locals will tell you that it helps to tighten their bust region, essential for native women who still prefer traditional dress customs. They also use the fruit's powder for a variety of skin ailments.
One of the rarest, most exotic oils in the world. A close relative to the shea tree, the argan fruit kernel produces rich, anti-aging oil high in antioxidant vitamin E, polyunsaturated and fatty acids.
Marula oil is valued for its nutritive, skin restoring properties. Rich in oleic acid and antioxidants, this oil is used by native women to protect their skin from the harsh Kalahari Desert environment.
Contains rare punicic acid which helps to rejuvenate and nourish skin cells. Our Egyptian, cold pressed oil, is pressed from the whole fruit providing a more nutritional oil.
Contains five times the amount of polysaccharides as aloe vera. Aloin, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids work synergistically on a myriad of skin issues. Apply African Aloe on burns, damaged skin or use for deep penetrating hydration.
Ximenia is extracted from wild harvested “plums.” This thick oil has amazing humectant and emollient properties. It works wonder to soften the hair and to keep nails from chipping.
Carrot Seed Oil:
High in pro-vitamin A and Beta Carotene, this cold pressed oil (not the common essential oil) works well for sun damaged, aging and lack luster skin types.
