Women co-operatives in Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana

Many of us spend a lot of money on Shea butter related beauty products, but very few of us are familiar with the process and the conditions of the fantastic women who collect, sell and process the nuts from which Shea butter is made.

Shea nut processing is an important income earning activity for many women in Northern Ghana and for some. In many cases, it is their only source of income. However, the traditional method of processing is an extremely arduous and time consuming activity. We thank the women cooperatives in Bolgatanga, in Northern Ghana that bring our Shea Oil products to live.
