Our Ghanaian 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 Shea butter comes in two varieties from two different regions.
Ivory Shea is from Ghana and has a light crumbly texture and is slightly lighter in colour. It has a natural nutty, vanilla honey-like fragrance.
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, 100% 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)
Bought as a birthday gift for my daughters girlfriend and she loved it. Apparently it smells amazing!
I use the ivory Shea butter daily it’s light for a balm I like it very much
Last October we came across the LIHA brand and instantly fell in love with the story and the beautiful smell of the candle and IDAN Oil. Since then we have given so many of our friends and family these as gifts. I use the Ivory Shea butter and Idan oil daily as part of my skin care as does my daughter.
Was my first time that I bought this African product the smell was not pleasant but the texture was lovely and cam be absorved very easily on your skin
This is a real treat for the skin, which I use from my head to my toes.
Very moisturising and leaves your skin feeling so smooth and soft.
A little goes a long way, which makes up for the initial disappointment at the size of the jar.
Beautiful scent too....I personally prefer the ivory Shea to the gold.
Would definitely recommend.
