Why we love it

This Pure Unrefined Shea Butter is the kind of "does-it-all-and-then-some" products that you'll want on hand all the time. The butter is so smooth and easy to apply—and works to moisturize your skin and your hair. It has no sulfates, parabens, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances (the list goes on) and it's also cruelty-free. So you could say it's basically the shea butter of our dreams.

How it does good

Empowering women and families in West Africa
