As a young widow of 19, Sofi Tucker sold her shea butter and skin salves to support her family in the Sierra Leone countryside. Years later, her grandchildren founded Shea Moisture — with a promise to ethically produce natural, organic products that love both people and communities.
In that vein, Shea Moisture founded Community Commerce, to support the people that source key brand ingredients — including training and infrastructure to ensure high quality goods and a fair price. In fact, 10% of Community Commerce sales give back to women-led businesses, the broader community and the Sofi Tucker Foundation.
The product line extends to moms, men, kids and babies. They offer skincare, haircare and cosmetics — all paraben free. We like.
BTW, their products are also available at Ulta — if you’d prefer to touch & feel them, first hand. They also have an entire back-to school line. Just in time.
