I like the look of these little tubs of Shea Butter from Shea Radiance, they remind me of ice-cream tubs and with names like Chocolate Truffle, Sweet Vanilla, Rainforest Spice, Pomegranate, Coconut Cream, Citrus Blossom and Lavender Bliss sound good enough to eat. Shea Radiance is a family-owned manufacturer, founded by Funlayo Alabi and her husband Shola Alabi who started making natural skincare products from unrefined shea butter in response to the specific health needs of their young children. Aromatherapy and botanical extracts are blended with the shea butter to make up moisturising and healing body and bath balms. Based in Maryland, US the company is deeply rooted in West Africa working in partnership with local shea butter producing communities to help provide a sustainable living. In cooperation with the German Technical Cooperation, Shea Radiance has established a shea butter production venture in northern Nigeria.
