Global Mamas is delighted to offer Global Mamas Pure Shea at a reasonable cost to you, and fair payment to the producers in Damongo, Ghana.
In a remote region of unforgiving drought, famine and poverty, the Karite tree has sustained life since it began. Since the 14th century, women have been working together to process the nuts into products that have enhanced their lives. We work with over 700 women in the Damongo area who practice the centuries-old trade of collecting the fallen nuts of the Karite tree, and laboriously transform them into the silken, nourishing and versatile creamy substance known as Shea Butter. We assure the quality and authenticity of our Grade A shea butter.
Buying Global Mamas Pure Shea gives women an opportunity to support themselves, and also feed and educate their families in a sustainable partnership with nature.
Global mamas is a fair trade organization, and is working with the shea butter producers to get organic certification and fair trade certification. These tools will guarantee that the hard work of the women of Damongo is properly recognized, appreciated and compensated.
