About Shea Radiance
Shea Radiance is an eco-luxury beauty brand. We create effective and luxurious beauty products using shea butter as our key active ingredient. Our shea butter is sourced directly for 8 women led cooperatives in Northern Nigeria and shipped to our warehouse in Maryland where we formulate and manufacture natural based hair and body care products.
Our journey began in 2005, while seeking a natural solution for our boys’ dry & eczema prone skin. It led us back to our homeland, West Africa, to the savannah, the source of shea butter. Shea butter is an amazing natural moisturizer that nourishes and protects the skin. It has been used for centuries in Africa as a beauty and healing balm and even for cooking. Shea butter is filled with natural bio-actives and anti-oxidants that make it the ideal moisturizer for skin that needs extra conditioning and moisture.
We found much more than the solution for dry skin during our trips to Africa. We found hardworking women who rose early to pick the shea fruit to process into butter. We were touched by how lack of access to education and good health care kept them in a perpetual cycle of poverty despite the abundance of beautiful, natural resources that surround them.
We aspire to make a difference. Our success is their success, and this keeps us motivated. Income from fairly traded shea production can provide a better life for women and their children. We are inspired by the beauty, strength and dignity of the women who harvest & process the shea butter we use in our production.
Shea Radiance represents the full circle of giving that uplifts women all the way through the value chain – from seed to shelf. Together we can make a beautiful difference in the lives of women and their communities.
