Shea Butter, like you’ve never seen before
Sourced from the local villages of Benin, West Africa, Noix De Shea brings some of the finest Shea Butter to the UAE market, 100% natural, fresh, and raw. Noix de Shea butter is a soft, smooth, multi-purpose essential. The brand also offers its own exquisite Grade A original blends that include organic Lavender, Rose Musk, Peppermint, Jasmine and Lemongrass.
Noix De Shea is the creation of Shahd Elghazali, a believer in the power and beauty of nature. A striver for exceptional simplicity and a fellow human with a passion to inspire, Shahd is bringing more than just an excellent product to the market. Through Noix De Shea, Shahd seeks to improve the understanding of the audience about what natural Shea butter should look and feel like.
“In 2019, I took a trip to Benin Republic where I discovered the undermined treasure that is raw unrefined Shea butter. Learning all that I did about its incredible properties, benefits and the women’s cooperation under which production is held, I soon realized that raw Shea butter is definitely one of the greatly misunderstood and misused products. That’s how Noix de Shea was born.”
“As a mother, I’m passionate about introducing only clean, safe, ethically sourced and effective products into my environment. Through Noix de Shea, we are dedicated to introducing a new, fresh take on the bioactive beauty skin superfood that is raw Shea butter. Our slogan is ‘Shea butter, like you’ve never seen before.’ The meaning behind this is simple: our Shea butter is like no other – whether it’s the texture, quality, story or attention to detail. This is Shea butter, but redefined,” says Shahd.
Shea butter is known widely to deeply nourish the skin from the inside to reveal plump, radiant, healthy glowing skin. Shea butter is fat extracted from the nuts of the shea tree and has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for centuries. Native to West Africa, this skin superfood has a high concentration of vitamins and fatty acids and an easy-to-spread consistency, making it a great product for smoothing, soothing, and conditioning your skin.
Ethically sourced butter
Ethically sourced products are a gateway to the economic stability of many developing communities. Noix de Shea sources its shea butter through fair trade, an arrangement designed to help producers in developing countries achieve sustainable and equitable trade relationships. It obtains natural shea butter through 100% fair trade with village locals in Benin, West Africa. This collaboration with the women's community in Benin brings not only the best shea butter to the market but also leaves a lasting positive impact on the Beninese communities. This relationship tells the story of taking a stance for women’s rights and fighting poverty, and that brand is very proud of the partnership they have with the women’s cooperation and Association Karite Benin (Benin Association of Shea butter).
