Family-owned and operated New York-based SheaMoisture was established in 1912, built from the ground up over four generations; the company began when the daughter of healers in Sierra Leone made handmade shea butter, African black soap, and other natural remedies to sell in local villages to support her family. Soon her salves and soaps were sought after across the countryside; today, as they were from the beginning, each product is natural, eco-friendly and organic. The company?s goal is to make better-for-you beauty, hair and skin care products with certified organic and natural ingredients; products are made at a local factory in Amityville, NY while the iconic shea butter is ethically sourced from women?s co-ops in Northern Ghana. The adult personal care product line includes all natural body oils and lotions, body wash, bar soaps and body scrubs; the company also offers baby care products including baby massage oil, baby ointment, baby lotion and raw shea butter for baby.
