Growing wild throughout southern Africa, emollient Marula Oil is collected from intoxicatingly sweet marula fruits. Craved by monkeys, elephants and humans alike, these fruits are often made into jams and juices. But as sweet as the fruit is, the real prize for many lies inside. The tough shell of marula's seed protects the precious oil making those who can't wait to indulge themselves work very hard for it. Each shell must be crushed by hand using a heavy rock. Once winnowed away, the seeds are sun dried while our Namibian collectors await transport of the seeds to the mill.

Get super fresh skin without the dry, itchiness that accompanies most soap bars. Commercially manufactured soap bars, even those that claim to be all natural, are often made with irritating chemicals and allergy causing synthetic fragrance. In order to make a cheap bar that bubbles well they are often made with a high coconut content. Coconut is a drying oil. The combination of large amounts of coconut oil, fragrance and poor quality oils creates soap that is harsh on skin. All Shea Terra Organic soaps are made using only all natural scents and the highest quality of virgin olive oil, virgin coconut butter and 33% shea butter. This emollient combination makes a soap which is gentle on the skin and leaves the skin feeling soft, not stripped.

Commercially made soap, whether natural or not, is usually made from premade soap pellets coming from countries like India. Big companies tell the manufacturer what they want to add as far as colour and fragrance. A die is made and the pellets are pressed into perfect shaped bars and stamped with logos. Some of these soaps are pretty nice. However, the natural glycerin in the soap is usually extracted to sell because glycerin can be resold for a good amount of money. Taking the natural glycerin out of soap produces a harsh soap that dries out the skin. And despite these soaps being called shea butter soap, very little shea butter is actually in the soap. Rather than replacing human labor with machines Shea Terra Organics employ and train people to make their moisture rich soap bars and insist that in order to produce a superior soap for our customers they must handmake it in their factory the old fashioned way. The result is a superior soap that cleans while nurturing the body.
