Shea Radiance offers a distinctive line of natural bath and body products made with pure Shea butter and using only ingredients from renewable and sustainable sources in Africa. The key ingredient is the healing Shea butter, extracted from the nuts that come from the Shea tree. Those Shea trees are carefully managed by local farmers and grown without the use of fertilizers or pesticides.
Shea Radiance works in partnership with local Shea butter producing communities and in cooperation with GIZ, German Technical Cooperation. The company has established a Shea butter production venture in Northern Nigeria, processing raw Shea nuts into Shea butter within the local communities.
Shea Radiance blends the powerful properties of aromatherapy and botanical extracts with Shea Butter to create a complete moisturizer and healing balm. Shea Radiance uses only unrefined Shea butter as the base for all products as unrefined Shea butter has been shown to be an effective healing balm.
Unrefined Shea butter is rich in properties that moisturize and heal the skin. Shea butter contains bioactives that include tocopherols, flavinoids and cathechins, similar to those found in green tea.
In addition, unrefined Shea butter contains a sizeable quantity of unsaponifiable fats, vitamins and other essential elements, which help cell regeneration and capillary circulation. Unrefined Shea promotes the healing of small wounds, stretch marks, eczema, cracked and irritated skin and skin ulcers.
