Global Mamas dedicates itself to providing sustainable livelihoods for women throughout Ghana. Our Pure Shea butter is produced by women living in one of Ghana’s most economically disadvantaged regions in the North. Located far from Ghana’s capital and the country’s populous coastal areas, the Northern Region is characterized by beautiful savannas—but also suffers from drought and poverty. Global Mamas Pure Shea is produced using sustainable and natural methods that have been passed down through generations. Since the 14th century, women have been working together to collect the fallen nuts of the Karite tree and laboriously transform them into the silken, nourishing and versatile creamy substance known as Shea butter. Global Mamas Pure Shea gives Ghanaian women an opportunity to support themselves and their families in a sustainable partnership with nature.
