All of the Shea trees are organically grown and harvested when fruit is ripe and ready to be processed. The fruit seeds are taken to the facility, where green edible peel is removed, and seeds are boiled and sun dried. Shells are then cracked and dried again to allow for sorting kernels. The kernels are washed, sent through a grinder, roasted and pressed before being filtered through organic clays. Rapid cooling completes the process before being packaged into cartons or drums.
