For years, three sisters from Ghana, West Africa had been searching for a natural skin moisturizer comparable to the raw, unrefined shea butter they used growing up—to no avail. With diverse backgrounds in dermatology, marketing, sales, law and economics, the siblings set out to recreate the traditional formula that eluded them for so many years. As a result, Karité was born.
Unlike other shea butter moisturizers that are often formulated with low concentrations of highly processed refined shea butter, Karité's natural, antioxidant-rich, dermatologist-formulated products include high concentrations of raw, unrefined shea butter and palm oil sourced directly from Ghana.
Formulated without harsh chemicals or irritating solvents, Karité products are hypoallergenic and free of synthetic dyes, silicones and parabens.
