Nilotica Shea-Butter

What is Nilotica ?

Nilotica shea-butter comes from a sub-species of the shea-butter tree indigenous to the Nile region of Africa. Shea-butter from the nilotica variety is soft and fragrant, with high levels of olein and therapeutic unsaponifiables.

Much softer and smoother in consistency than conventional shea-butters, nilotica shea-butter is a unique and precious botanical substance, a blend of natural compounds with unparalleled healing and moisturizing effects on the skin.

In support of the Shea Project, COVOL and NUSPA are sole distributors of the finest-quality crushed cold-pressed shea-butter from the nilotic shea-butter tree. All proceeds from the sale of Nilotica Shea Butter products sustain the Shea Project.

Nilotica Shea Butter And the Shea Project

COVOL works to support ‘Bright Green’ Fair Trade Products

All shea-butter used is handmade by women from wild-gathered sheanut and marketed through farmers groups and cooperatives in rural northern Uganda. Direct returns to the producers increase the value of the living shea tree, engendering conservation of indigenous African woodland for future generations.

Nilotica Shea Butter is a superior cosmetic and pharmaceutical grade product which is:

  • natural process / cold-pressed
  • softer and more fragrant than conventional shea-butter
  • high in shea olein and unsaponifiables
  • no preservatives
  • wildcrafted
  • fair trade
  • cruelty-free — no animal testing
  • handmade and marketed by majority-women producers cooperatives

All proceeds from the sale of Nilotica shea-butter sustain the Shea Project for Local Conservation and Development (The Shea Project).

Your purchase promotes conservation of indigenous savanna woodland and helps preserve the cultural and ecological integrity of the project area.
