Raw. One ingredient. Ethically sourced. Fragrance Free. Vegan.
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)
Love the Liha Gold Shea butter the best product I've had the pleasure of using in ages
I love the Gold Shea Butter so much. Just what I needed. I’ll definitely be adding it to my list of must haves skincare!
I had seen Lina online and wanted to try it for ages so treated myself over Christmas. It’s such a lovely product and I’ve used on some dry patches since I got it with great results. Will definitely buy again!
My wife loves it!!!, I normally buy her the ivory Shea butter which she also love’s, but after reading reviews I thought she might like this so thought why not. BIG smiles from the both of us 😁
I absolutely love your Shea butter. Since finding your company is a repeat purchase! I gifted one to my daughter for Christmas and she loves it to. I use it on any dry patches or as a foot moisturiser at night or as an all over body butter, mixed with a few drops of your Ilia oil. Just divine.
