R&R takes a lot of care and pride in being a socially-responsible business.  As a brand out of Africa, we feel it very important to give back to the land that made and inspired us. We recognize that many are less fortunate and the significance of investing in our community.

Aside from donating a portion of our profits to charity, we ensure that all of our raw materials are sourced from ethical producers.

Our Shea Butter is processed by a women’s cooperative especially put together to process high quality unrefined sheabutter.

Our manufacturer provides these cooperative societies with loans, credit facilities and quality control expertise and a higher price for their quality processed Shea butter. This initiative has in the medium term, alleviated poverty amongst the rural women and in, the long term provides employment opportunities for rural women and young people.

The organized cooperative societies collect shea nut products. The nuts collected are pre-treated to prevent and remove the possibility of surface molds and also as a precaution to microbiological contamination.

The collected nuts, even from cursory observation even appear to be of excellent quality and have been confirmed in  Laboratory analysis. Nuts are stored in a well-constructed and maintained traditional storage facility. The shea nut is very wet when it is picked and the drying process, bagging, packaging and storage has to be managed efficiently to ensure that the Free Fatty Acid content remains as low as possible.

Our training and attention to detail in the areas of processing, packaging, labeling, quality control, warehousing and shipments has made our shea nuts and shea butter products the best in quality.

A Quality Assurance department, apart from providing job opportunities for quality controllers, has provided avenues for increased quality products and increased production of Shea nut yields therefore.

When you buy our Fair Trade Shea butter, you are enabling the women that process our Shea butter to live with dignity and invest in their families, communities and the environment.
