Shea butter has been used for years to moisturize the skin. The butter can even be applied to the skin to saturate the cells with moisture and prevent wrinkles and stretch marks. Studies have also shown that due to the cinnamic acid in shea butter, it can reduce inflammation all over the body. Shea butter has the ability to shield the skin from acne breakouts and even the skin tone to get rid of blemishes. The butter also has a low SPF (6), so it can be combined with your favorite sunblock to shield your skin from the sun while providing your skin with extra moisture.
There are a number of shea butter companies around the world that promise to offer quality products. EugeniaShea is one of the shea butter companies that stand out in this regard. Eugenia Akuete, a native of Ghana, wanted to provide a way for women to make a lucrative living and create a solid financial future for their children.
Eugenia wanted to prove that women from Ghana were capable of managing a household while being business owners. EugeniaShea was founded to free women from cultural and societal barriers that prevented them from being successful. Eugenia left her corporate job at Goodwill Industries International and began her shea butter business in 1999. Investing just $20, Eugenia started selling small jars of shea butter and shipping it to the United States. She was able to make $3,000 her first year in business and decided to work on her business full time. She named her trading company Naasakle Limited, after her daughter.
Eugenia Akuete is currently the president of the Global Shea Alliance, and continues to ensure that women are empowered professionally. Eugenia Shea is proud to continue offering quality shea butter for women to cure and prevent a number of health concerns, and is proud to promote women’s empowerment.
