The Best Shea Butter Comes From Ghana, Africa

Dry skin, eczema, rosacea, plus many more skin issues can be irritating and embarrassing. Prescription creams often have negative side effects and unnatural ingredients. People try many lotions and creams hoping to find the right product for their skin issues only to find that they are like all of the rest, their money wasted. Natural shea butter is often the best answer for many dermatology problems. The gentle butter comes from the shea tree and has been used for medicinal purposes for ages. Luckily for consumers, shea butter products are now widely available at a reasonable price. Beware the many impersonators that don’t use quality shea. Many companies actually only utilize a small quantity of shea butter and a large amount of cheap ingredients, including water.

EuGenia Shea is a brand that can be trusted, not only do they use sustainably paid farmers but they also use only the highest quality raw shea, using a whopping 95% shea. The company uses a recipe passed down through three generations. Their all-natural products can reduce scarring, repair dry skin, aid with topical skin conditions, and so much more.  Their full shea butter range is available on the website at

Beyond quality products and responsible working conditions for employees, the company also has goals of improving life for women globally. They employ 700 women in Ghana and pay fair wages. EuGenia educates their employees and reinvests profits into charitable programs there. They hope to inspire other women to start businesses, become educated, all while improving their skin. It can easily be said that EuGenia is a company that cares about its customers, employees, and all women.
