The Deluxe Difference

 

Ghana arguably has the best Shea butter in the world because the nuts have the most desirable chemical balance, and the traditional processing methods create a very clean butter.

 

Since the Shea tree is not cultivated, ownership is by those whose farm it grows on. The Shea nut tree pollinates during the harmattan period and cares for itself till after 4 years when it starts to produce fruits. Harvesting of the Shea fruit is done between mid May through to end of July, whereas the butter processing usually takes place from June through to August.

Traditionally it has been the women who go and pluck or gather the Shea nuts. The women sometimes have to travel as far as 17 kilometres on foot and carry bags in excess of 40kgs on the heads whilst carrying their children on their backs. Working within the Shea trade in many cases is the only form and sole source of income for these women and their families.

Shea oil which is obtained from the Shea nuts is used as cooking oil in the northern part of Ghana, as well as oil for the locals to light up their lamps at night. The skin of the Shea nut is eaten and the bark of the tree is also used as a prophylactic against certain childhood illness and minor scrapes and cuts. The dry shell of the nut when burnt acts as an effective mosquito repellent. In fact even the residue left after the butter has been collected during the extraction process is used as organic manure by the local farmer’s for their crops.

RESPECTING TRADITION, SUPPORTING COMMUNITIES

 

At Deluxe Shea Butter, they work with women’s co-operative groups for the processing of their organic and fair-trade Shea butter. Traditionally it has been the women who go and pluck or gather the shea nuts. The women sometimes have to travel as far as 17 kilometres on foot, and carry bags in excess of 40 kg on their heads while carrying their children on their backs. Working within the Shea trade is in many cases the only form and sole source of income for these women and their families.

 

The Deluxe Extraction Process

 

Shea fruits/nuts are harvested – mature/ripe nuts fallen from Shea trees are gathered by women and piled.

A thorough inspection is done, and matured dry fruits are separated from those that are going bad. Normally, the nuts that have had their pits or the sweet part eaten or taken off are cleaned and kept.

The nuts are then boiled and sun dried for a few hours on traditional drying mats.

The nuts are dehusked to get their kernels – this involves the nuts being pounded in a mortar or ground on a grinding stone, and then sent to a grinding machine to be ground to a very smooth powder. Due to the labour intensive process involved, women normally come together at this stage to help.

After the nuts are ground into a smooth powder, water is boiled and the powder stirred in slowly and kneaded by hand (hands are washed with clean water) to form an emulsion to separate fats. As the stirring and kneading continues, lukewarm water is added in 15 to 30 minute intervals.

After a while, the butter starts to form at the surface, and the women carefully collect it with their hands. The collected butter is placed into a different pan, on low heat, to liquefy again. The above process is repeated until the women are sure that no impurities (that is, traces of the husk) remain.

The butter/oil is collected and double filtered into a pan and left to cool down to a thickening point before packaging. The unrefined Shea butter is packed and ready for export.
