Nature Meets Science.
For centuries, African people have used powerful botanicals as traditional healing elixirs. Terres d’Afrique has studied how people use these relatively unknown ingredients. The curative and restorative power of many African plants is legendary for a reason. They work. In crafting our products, we have combined these ingredients in potent formulations that maximise their skin care benefits; the culmination of years of exploration, field research and laboratory development.

Collecting the nuts and extracting the butter is hard work for African women who can take up to 20 hours to produce 1kg of shea butter. Shea butter has been used in Africa for centuries for its rich skin protection properties.
