Ingredient Focus: The shea butter used in our Shea Butter Collection is harvested by local women, and helps empower the community, creates social interaction, protects the environment, and advances the local culture.
It takes 15-20 years for a Vitellaria tree (Shea Butter tree) to grow before it’s ready to harvest. Arbonne has been investing in these Shea communities for that long, waiting and utilizing it’s rich resource.
Ethics Matter and I’m proud to represent a company that cares about the health of people, animals, the environment, & the communities AND the source communities! Our Shea Butter Collection is Fair Trade & supports Women’s Shea Collectives & Development Initiatives! Supporting fair trade helps reduce potential abuse to those who don’t have a voice or income.
