About Shea Origin
Shea Origin specializes in crafting exclusively natural skincare products
derived from locally sourced, genuine Shea Butter.
Our primary objective is to establish a globally recognized brand that not only delivers premium Shea Butter and ﬁnished skincare and cosmetic items but also champions women’s empowerment in the rural regions of Nigeria.
At Shea Origin, our mission revolves around fostering women empowerment within our rural communities. Since our inception in 2014, we have collaborated with women Shea producers in Nigeria, providing them equipment and comprehensive training to enhance the quality of Shea Butter.
To date, we have successfully trained over 8000 women in Nigeria through the Training of the Trainers (ToT) method. Through our non-proﬁt organization, the Shea Empowerment Foundation (SEF), we remain dedicated to advancing the cause of women in Nigeria. Our focus on producing world-class Shea Butter serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to both quality skincare products and empowering women on a global scale.
