More people are becoming aware of the natural benefits of unrefined Shea butter and with this increased interest the demand for the product grows. During the development stages of the Emi & Ben we came to understand the hard work of those involved in the making of unrefined Shea butter. From the start we made a promise to purchase our unrefined Shea butter directly from local women in West Africa. Not only for the reason that the product is sustainable because it is hand harvested and hand produced, but also because it allows the local people of Africa to be in control of their resources.
goals and aims
Since Emi & Ben was founded we have been working with a local family in Nigeria to purchase our Shea butter in bulk, in order to support them directly. As the company grows our vision is to give 10% of company profits each year, towards the local suppliers we purchase our shea butter from. We want to be in a position to help them sustain a standard of life which those living in the Western world often take for granted. We're not there yet, but we are working hard to be. We hope you will support us to achieve this goal so we can support them.
