About Community Commerce

At SheaMoisture we invest proceeds from every purchase into the community. When you purchase SheaMoisture, you are investing in women globally. Our educational and entrepreneurial programs are designed to create an inclusive and thriving society from the US to Africa. To date, you have helped us fund millions in education, healthcare, safety, and fair wages.

Our handcrafted shea butter is sourced directly from Ghana. Your proceeds are developing critical community infrastructure in Ghana such as a safer work environment, access to healthcare, and piped water that boosts production capacity and quality. In the U.S, investments are made in entrepreneurial and educational programs that empower women and transform communities.
