Process Flow

Our process flow has been created to ensure that our product is always the highest quality. We astart by harvesting the organically grown fruit seeds from the shea tree. The edible green peel is removed to expose the nut. The nuts are then boiled and sun dried, followed by sorting the kernels, washing and more sun drying. The nuts are then grinded, roasted and expeller pressed. We do not use any solvents. Once the oil has been collected, it is bleached by filtration through organic clays, rapidly cooled and packaged.
