    Women in Ghana have been turning shea nuts into butter for centuries. People across Africa have used it for skin and hair care, food, and medicine for at least 700 years. But for the past four decades, men have been cutting down the very tree that provides livelihood to many families. We traveled to Ghana to find out how despite the challenges, this group of women artisans is Still Standing.

    Women Built The Shea Butter Industry In Ghana. Now, They Are Fighting To Save It | Still Standing

This is so sad to me. The demand for shea butter has increased by 600%. These women should be living in luxury. Per usual, every country takes the resources from Africa but somehow manage to leave the inhabitants out of the equation. It's sickening but from now on I'll definitely make the effort to buy from small businesses vs commercially

This is because raw output has little value until it has been converted to creams, soaps or processed in any form. They are in the wrong part of the value chain

This documentary is so refreshing! I've recently had the chance to taste the shea fruit. It is very delicious with a rich taste. Eat two and you would feel full. The nuts look like jewelry when taken out of a ripe fresh fruit. The tree does also look good. It reflects beauty, quality and strength. I use the butter often and I can say it makes my body happy in many ways...

its appreciable they're still sticking on to traditional methods but if they take this as their primary source of income it's advisable to incorporate sophisticated technology phase by phase to keep up with mechanised sector. its kinda devastating when we see all our hardwork and labour getting little to no returns just because we stood there while the world went ahead. yall deserve much more for all these efforts seriously

In most of West Africa, shea butter trees are planted, and the whole process of butter making is somewhat industrialised. So I wonder to what extent this video reflects reality.

I started using pure shea butter bar from Ghana on my skin some years back. I had really bad hyperpigmentation on my face and now my blemishes are nearly gone. This is only product that has actually helped to heal my skin(not over night but over the course of a few years). A little goes a long way. One real bar last me for about 6mths. Btw: if the shea butter you purchase looks like a traditional soap bar (dial or safeguard shape) then don't purchase it. A real bar or real butter will look more homemade. Check the label

@Hasan Ażîż Christianity is a relationship with God, not a religion, Christianity is a way of life, Jesus taught us the way how we should live our life, he came as a humble servant to bring us closer to God, God is one but God has three different natures, not three gods but different natures, in the Scriptures it states "in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God, the scripture continues to say that the word became FLESH and dwelt among Us, Isaiah 53 clearly and specifically states what the Messiah is and what the Messiah came to do, scripture also states that Jesus says that if you've seen me you have seen the father he came to reconcile man to God, he came to teach us how to live and show us the way to eternal life because only God can save us.

I could imagine in my hearts mind…..200 acres of land with their very own plantation in the center. I’d section of 1 acre a piece for each women and would have them build earth bag eco dome homes and adjacent barns. I can see them each one having fruits nuts vegetables and vines and every type of poultry for their needs. Each one living under their own fig and vine. ( Solomon’s rule) may they be fully equipped and supplied for every good work full of wisdom knowledge and skill. land in the hands for the people is key. Seed of every good thing tools supply and equipment. Man there has got to be a better way. Sometimes I long for a blue print from heaven to drop down from the heavens a new living way to live move and have our being.

Been using shea and cocoa butter products for years. Who doesn't love walking around smelling like chocolate?

There are some section that should be mechanised like the mixing segment and the refining segment. For the selection and crushing process, it is really good stuff that they are doing by hand.

So how can one go about ordering directly from these women? The producer of this documentary and others like it should setup a site to be able to order directly from these wonderful people, and not charge them overhead. This way we can cut out the corporate middle-man and support farmers directly. It's obviously a higher quality product and worth the effort and wait, to me.

This must be some high quality shea butter especially the women are experienced enough which nuts are to be chosen for the butter.

I got emotional watching this. I buy Shea butter and black soap from markets nigeria. When it runs out I wait till someone goes home and buys it for me. It is authentic and I’d rather give them my money.

I think SIMPLE changes that do not impact QUALITY controls associated with hand labor are a good mix - I love this and have made contact, hope to hear back

its strange to me, instead of getting continuous income from living tree men prefer to get it once off ... as charcoal (perhaps even lower in value then shea butter) 🤔

@Shikhar Agrawal True, that's what even I noticed the way they went on to demonize men for it. They very conveniently forget that men do it for their families, societies, nations and even civilizations.

Rather than men , people. Ghana is poor country, people needs charcoal for cooking and other things.

Can you please add a link in the bio so we can purchase directly from these women? They should be charging $40 USD for 200ml and I'd buy it 😕
