Announcement    We are a South Sudanese Women's Cooperative producing hand made, extra virgin, cold-pressed, organic, nilotic shea butter. Different from West African shea butter, Nilotic shea butter is naturally higher in shea olein and unsaponifiables, melting more gently into the skin. 100% of the sale price is ours to cover our costs, strengthen our cooperative, support our families and develop our communities. Our cooperative sells at competitive market prices determined by the inherent quality of our products, without resorting to ‘ethical’ mark-ups. As a producers' cooperative, we achieve fair trade not by over-charging you but by selling direct, avoiding middlemen and ensuring maximum returns to our members. Learn more about us in this video: http://www.infocusworld.org

We also want you to know that we are officially registered both with the Forestry Department in South Sudan, and with South Sudan and Kenya as a business. Thus we are able to export our lulu to Kenya and then to the US legally, complying with OFAC regulations. We even received recognition from USAID as representing good practice in "adding value" to primary production in conflict-affected areas and Eunice, our manager was on Ted Talks! http://www.ted.com/tedx/events/6219

We are a South Sudanese Women's Cooperative producing hand made, extra virgin, cold-pressed, organic, nilotic shea butter. We began in 2001 with technical and financial assistance from Medic, an international NGO.

Our cooperative sells at competitive market prices determined by the inherent quality of its products, without resorting to ‘ethical’ mark-ups. As a producers' cooperative, we achieve fair trade not by over-charging you but by selling direct, avoiding middlemen and ensuring maximum returns to our members. 100% of the sale price is ours to cover our costs, strengthen our cooperative, support our families and develop our communities.

We also want you to know that we are officially registered both with the Forestry Department in South Sudan, and with South Sudan and Kenya as a business. Thus we are able to export our lulu to Kenya and then to the US legally, complying with OFAC regulations. Once in the US we are helped by "Friends of Lulu" a registered 501(c). We even received recognition from USAID as representing good practice in "adding value" to primary production in conflict-affected areas and Eunice, our manager was on Ted Talks! http://www.ted.com/tedx/events/6219

We welcome constructive feedback on our product; the consistency, the smell, the cost, the packaging. Even if you don't buy our products but see them on the internet, please write us and tell us what you think. Our intention is to learn about international markets. Etsy is helping us do that.
