Our organic unrefined Shea Butter, traditional hand crafted by local women’s co-operatives in Ghana.
Our Organic Shea is called “Hippo Shea” as it comes from the Wechiau Community Hippo Sanctuary, a hippo conservation area in the Upper West Region of Ghana. This initiative to organically harvest Sheanuts is in collaboration with the Calgary Zoo (CZ), the Nature Conservation Research Centre (NCRC) and the Sanctuary Management Board (SMB) of the Wechiau Community Hippo Sanctuary (WCHS). The success of the initiative relies on education, eco-tourism and increased benefits reaching communities in the area, who in turn learn to better understand and respect biodiversity conservation and to protect the last remaining natural population of hippos on the Ghanaian stretch of the Black Volta River.
