HOME OF OKERE SHEA BUTTER
Because shea trees grow naturally in Okere, we are deliberate in our efforts to regenerate and conserve shea trees by promoting its re-forestation and sensitizing our community not to cut the trees. We are also investing in shea butter by creating cosmetic product lines to launch in the market place - with the first one being Okere Shea Butter. In essence, we strive to position SHEA BUTTER as the "vibranium" that spurs socio-economic transformation in our village. Among other things, we have started Okere Shea Cooperative Society to be the bedrock upon which our shea investments are rested.
I have fallen head over heels in love with Okere Shea Butter. I cannot look further from it. It is by far the best moisturizer I have ever used. Additionally, the story behind the women who collect the nuts is inspiring. To think that when I buy a tin of Okere Shea Butter, at least some money finds its way to these women and the community is amazing.
