Shea Terra Shea Nilotik' East African Shea Butter (Ugandan Women’s Cooperative)
For over a decade, Shea Terra Organics’ founder, Tammie Umbel, has been helping native Africans preserve their wildlife habitats by sharing their indigenous healing ingredients with the world.
Not only do Shea Terra Organics’ skin care treatments assist in preservation, they are also the backbone of economic sustainability for many hardworking families across the African continent. Since early 2000, Shea Terra Organics has worked closely with cooperatives and conservation groups to introduce Africa’s time-tested ingredients, such as mongongo oil and east African shea butter, to the world.
Shea Terra Organics was the vision of Tammie’s quest to create a market for natural products from third world countries, which would help alleviate poverty while preserving diminishing natural habitats. Sufferers of skin ailments across the world sought out Tammie’s therapeutic grade African shea butter products because they were amazingly affordable at a time when shea butter was sold at hundreds of dollars per pound.
Realizing the immense impact that a single ingredient like shea butter could have on the world, Tammie Umbel began seeking out other rare and indigenous ingredients that could enhance or compliment the benefits of shea butter. Working closely with cooperatives, scientists, conservationists and non-profits, Tammie actively seeks out ingredients little known outside of remote parts of Africa, which include marula oil, black seed oil, mongongo oil, African black soap and more.
Not only are these time-tested ingredients highly therapeutic, they also bring income and awareness to preserve natural habitats which would otherwise be destroyed. Shea Terra Organics was thus rebranded in a quest to reveal Africa’s ancient skin care therapies -- in time to preserve them before they are lost forever.
