Skin and Hair

Aburi Botanicals skin products are made primarily of shea and cocoa butters sourced from Northern Ghana. Our hair products often feature shea butter, hempseed oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil. We offer unrefined shea butter and cocoa butter sold in its raw form as it is in Ghanaian markets. Our silky shea and creamy cocoa butters are of the highest quality and are suitable for all skin types. We also offer whipped shea butter and whipped cocoa butter that have added oils (restorative rosehip and almond oils, for example) to create velvety soft body butters.

Both shea and cocoa butters are highly moisturizing oils that nourish, protect, and soothe the skin. They are solid at room temperature, but melt when applied to the skin. Shea butter is rich in vitamins A, E, and F, naturally helping to reduce the appearance of aging. Cocoa butter is also rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants, and is an excellent emollient. Shea and cocoa butters have been used for centuries to:

Hydrate, smooth, and soften skin
Alleviate and reduce symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis
Prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks
Assist in healing and reducing the appearance of scars, blemishes, sunburn, and minor burns
Hydrate and moisturize dry hair and scalp and help repair and prevent hair breakage
