Woman's hands using Fairtrade beauty products

Fairtrade shea beauty must-haves

Natural shea butter is the hottest beauty trend this year – and even better, it can benefit women workers too. Here are six of our favourite products.

Why shea butter?

Shea butter has long been treasured for its nourishing and soothing effect on the skin. It’s a natural raw ingredient used in many of our favourite skincare, makeup and haircare products.

By buying beauty products containing Fairtrade shea, you know that it’s not just your super-soft skin that benefits.

The women producers earn a fairer price for their shea. And they can use the extra Fairtrade Premium they receive to support their communities.

We think that’s a beautiful result. Read more about the impact of fairer shea butter in our blog.
