I am sure that you have heard of raw unrefined shea butter. Shea butter comes more often than not, from Africa. The main place being referred to as ‘The African Shea Belt’. It covers approximately 3,000 miles. It spans from the foothills of the eastern Ethiopian highlands across to Senegal in the west. This is the region which occurs between the southern African rainforests and the northern Sahara desert. The more popular areas being Benin, Mali, Ghana, and the Ivory Coast.
I am a big time lover of shea butter and although I order most of the times from Back2Africa, there are times when I need my shea butter delivered tomorrow and not in a week or so. You can read more about shea butter in an article I wrote HERE!.
I ordered this brand from Amazon and was nicely surprised once I received it.
