Born from a personal need which then became a business, Shea-Me promote ethical standards, by sourcing their Shea Butter from a woman’s co-operative in Wa, Northern Ghana. This enables them to build a better future for their families and their community.

All of products are ZERO toxins, SLS, preservatives, stabilisers and palm oil. They packaging is recyclable to protect the environment.
A 2010 research found cinnamic acid and
other natural properties in shea butter was anti-inflammatory in particular, lupeol cinnamate was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations.
Shea-Me has started as a personal hobby of today director Suzette Mcdowell .She often found it very difficult to find skin care products on the market which both hydrated and nourished her skin. All begun when Suzette friend introduced her to Shea Butter in its natural form.
Since then she has started creating her own creams and thus the idea of Shea-Me™ was born. Suzette has started to experiment with different raw Shea Butters on the market in order to perfect her recipe.
Shea-Me is geared towards individuals who want a chemical free skincare regime while looking after the environment.
