Good for the skin, good for the world.
Organic on the inside, bright on the outside. For a short time only, four Dr. Hauschka classics have been given a colourful makeover to celebrate our 20-year partnership with shea nut suppliers from Burkina Faso. Inside are some of our most popular products made with certified organic and fair-trade shea butter.
20 years of organic shea butter from Burkina Faso.
Thanks to our long-standing raw material partnerships around the world, we help ensure better living conditions and a more sustainable approach to nature. This is also reflected in the world's first raw material project for organic shea nuts, which we jointly initiated in Burkina Faso. Agrifaso, our partner in Burkina Faso, handles the complete processing of the shea nuts centrally in Bobo-Dioulasso with its 150 permanent employees. That way, we ensure that as much of the added value as possible remains within the country during the production of shea butter, the soft vegetable fat of the shea nut. Around 4,000 women from 25 villages sell their shea harvest to Agrifaso and benefit from a reliable buyer and a fair price for the nuts.
What makes this partnership special?
For us, a partnership of equals thrives through the exchange of knowledge; by providing 10 agronomic advisers through Agrifaso, expertise on sustainable production processes, quality management and agricultural reforestation is shared.
In addition, educating women in Burkina Faso on medical issues and talks on health topics by Agrifaso contribute to this special fair-trade-certified partnership.
Through long-term cooperation, we continue to create sources of inspiration to help achieve independence for all partners within the value chain.
