Shea butter, or vegetable butter, is an edible substance extracted from the fruits of the shea tree. This wild tree occurs naturally only in Africa, in the Sudanian and Sahelian zones north of the equator and whose name means “Life” in Mandingo language. Due to its original positioning, Etykos.Ltd has set up production agreements with the network of women’s groups in Burkina Faso for organic shea butters.
A unique and ancestral know-how
African women have held unique sacred skills for generations that allow them to naturally extract shea butter while preserving its richness and vital energy.
