We've been selling this shea butter produced by the Shea Project in Uganda for over 10 years now at Uncle Jer's but wanted to feature it here on our blog for several reasons:
- As a versatile skincare and beauty product, we find this particular shea butter to be second to none
- The money goes back directly to women's co-ops in Uganda, where the cash is spent on such things as children school fees and household food items that can't be farmed locally
- By raising the economic value of the living, producing shea tree, the local eco-system is spared from the axes of charcoal traders
- And, last but not least, the project was founded by Cassandra's sister Alisa and a colleague in the early 90's. Yay, family!
