African shea butter is an incredibly amazing and versatile product.

In Africa, shea butter is mainly used by women as a moisturizer for the skin, and is used in cooking too. It protects the skin against cold weather, UV-radiation, skin diseases and burns.

In fact, a growing number of cosmetics companies in the USA and Europe now include shea butter in their products.

Shea butter is made from the nuts of the African Shea tree that only grows in the Sahel region of the continent.

Guess what? It takes 15 years, at the minimum, for the African Shea tree to mature before it starts producing nuts.

In this short video, you’ll see how women entrepreneurs in Mali depend on this product, not only for its amazing uses and benefits, but for its potential to make money.
