Extracted from the nuts of Shea trees, shea butter presents a natural source for vitamin A and E, crucial elements for anyone’s skin care routine. Once taken from the tree, manufacturers prepare shea butter by cold pressing it; preservatives and chemicals are avoided in its preparation. The final yield is a scentless, solid, beige block that melts when it contacts skin.
The uses for shea butter are plentiful. It soothes rashes and insect bites, the sting of sunburn, and can be used to repair dry, cracked skin. Shea butter relieves some of the symptoms of eczema, dermatitis, and frost bite and can help tired or tense muscles. It also helps promote the disappearance of stretch marks.
EuGenia Shea offers a wide variety of both unrefined and scented shea butter. Eugenia provides its customers with several types of shea butter formulated for dermatological disorders, relief during pregnancy, and everyday use. The company offers a mix and match gift box that allows the purchaser to choose the fragrance they desire and receive it in a decorative tin. They also provide a subscription delivery service that makes restocking a dwindling shea butter supply easier.

The company not only prides itself on a superior product; it also promotes women-driven business, fair wages, and job training opportunities to women in Ghana who help to harvest nuts from Shea trees and prepare the product for distribution.
