Better Shea Butter was founded in 2013 with a signature 1 lb brick of Unrefined Shea Butter, sourced from a small women’s co-op in Ghana.

We later expanded to offering other butters, oils and botanicals that are carefully and ethically sourced.

Our headquarters are in Austin, TX, where we manufacture, package and warehouse everything we offer.

We believe that the use of simple ingredients, and the creation of skin care products is fun and easy.

A letter from our Founder

We’re all busy women – moms, wives, business owners and career mavens, but I’m passionate about the fact that no matter how busy we get, there’s always time to do the right thing for our bodies. The great part about DIY natural skin care is it truly only involves minutes of hands-on time to whip up a batch of lotion, cream or deodorant and it makes all the difference.

I find DIY skin care enjoyable and rewarding, like cooking a meal the way you like it, using the ingredients you choose and tweaking it however you feel like to make it perfect for you.

I hope you find what you need and enjoy it as much as I do.

The Values We Believe In


Less is more, no need to complicate it. Healthy skincare is easier than you think.


You’re stunning no matter what your skincare routine is. Beauty is about who you are, not what you look like.


Every human is awesome, period. No discrimination over here, never ever.


We don’t use synthetic/toxic ingredients or associate with toxic people, brands or ideas. We like to keep it healthy all around!

Our Global Connection

We get our ethically sourced products from amazing people all over the world.

Each of our products is carefully selected from ethical, fair trade suppliers to bring you the highest quality while supporting the lovely people that make them.
