SheaMoisture is the extension of the founders' Grand Ma Sofi's legacy. In 1916, she began gathering and trading Shea Butter and other harvests at the Bonthe village market in Sierra Leone, to support her young family. Four years later, she opened a tiny shop selling her home made products using Shea Butter, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil and other local produce. In 1992 the SheaMoisture Company was founded, offering her home remedies and their healing properties to their friends and extended family.
The SheaMoisture Company utilizes the highest possible concentrations of pure Shea Butter, the most effective natural skin hydrator, with other active natural ingredients to promote skin health, rejuvenation and radiance. As a pioneer in incorporating Shea Butter into beauty are products, SheaMoisture has brough the natural healing and regenerative properties of Shea Butter to the forefront of skin care treatment.
