FAIR WAGES & AFRICAN WOMEN SHEA BUTTER FORMULATORS
AFRICAN WOMEN & SHEA BUTTER FORMULAtion
We really hope these women will eventually be fairly
compensated for their labor of making shea butter. This is important to me and
my company of making natural products because we use organic Shea butter
shipped straight from Africa that we pick up from Vital Health Foods in NY
annually. Once in a while, we have even seen a few pieces of the nut or shell
in our bags straight from the village. So different than purchasing local. I
went on a YouTube binge of watching women in several villages creating shea
butter. I wanted to share with you as well. I loooove shea butter for its many
benefits but enough talking. Here's the two last videos I watched.
Women are teaching other women from rural areas, how to
make shea butter. This is powerful because women are teaching other women how to create income for them and their families. This is EMPOWERMENT! This is how it was many years ago when so many of our ancestors used their creativity and experiences to help their communities and become entrepreneurs which creates jobs for families.
