Nigerian Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret. Used for centuries by women to protect and regenerate the skin, its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E.
A multi-purpose moisturiser for all skin types, it can be used on dry areas, stretch marks, scars, as a nappy balm, or as a base for making your own natural cosmetics.
Our Nigerian Gold Shea comes from Abi’s dad’s town and is waxy in texture. With a little more moisturising power than the Ivory, this is a favourite among our customers who suffer from eczema. The natural fragrance is more earthy and has notes of clean soil.
Shea Butter is known for its high content of fatty acids and its naturally occurring content of Vitamins A and E. Traditionally used as a “cure-all” balm, with women in Africa using it on everything from stretch marks and scars to babies' bums. An excellent natural alternative to petroleum jelly.
Face: Shea butter is rich so use it on dry patches on your face or has a 10-15mins face mask or a DIY overnight mask depending on your skin type. Use to treat chapped lips and an aftersun treatment.
Body: All over body butter - great for really dry areas especially hands, feet, elbow. Has been known to help skin conditions like eczema. Also, use it as a base to make your own creations.
Baby: Made from one natural vegan ingredient so it’s great for babies and kids. 100% safe. Use for nappy rash, moisturiser, belly balm.
We use top quality, ethically sourced Ghanaian, and Nigerian Shea butter.

How To Use
All you need is a small amount, let it melt between your hands and apply everywhere - body, face, feet, and hands.
Psoriasis suffers are advised to patch test before use as Shea butter encourages the regeneration of skin cells. People with psoriasis have an increased production of skin cells resulting in the build-up which is what is associated with psoriasis.
Shea butter contains natural latex, although reactions to Shea butter are quite rare please be aware of possible allergic reaction.
Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii ( Shea Butter)
The Liha gold Shea is the best Shea butter I’ve ever bought. It smells nutty and hearty and when you massage it into your skin it feels like it’s doing good instantly. It’s become part of my every day routine and helps me love my body and my self.
I adore this product! I’m a body butter addict and this and the ivory butters are hands down the best products I’ve ever tried. Sinks into the skin and hydrates fantastically!
I love the Gold Shea Butter, it is so light and also deeply moisturising! I use it daily and often use it on my partners dry patches, he would not normally like moisturiser, but he also loves it!
I absolutely adore this product. It has made me feel whole again. My skin was for some reason feeling very tight and dry, for a very long time. But, since I have been using these products my skin feels that it belongs to me again. The bonus being that it is also much softer and it glows. Thank you so very much. I am a customer for life!
Got this for my husband's birthday. He has very dry skin and used shea butter as a child back in Nigeria. Love the smell, the minimum packaging and the ethos.
