The exceptional qualities of Lulu
Most shea butter comes from the West African shea tree (Vitelleria paradoxa) which produces a harder, stronger-smelling product. The nuts used in Lulu Life products come from the Vitellaria paradoxa nilotica trees that grow only in East Africa. They are collected, cracked, sorted, dried, ground by hand and then cold-pressed by our rural women-members. This method avoids even the slightest trace of chemical contamination. Our lulu is unrefined and non-certified organic. Only the very highest quality and most pure is used to make Lulu Life products.
Lulu is one of very few commercially available nilotic shea butters. Chemical testing by ProKarite demonstrates that it is higher in triterpenes - which have proven attributes such as anti-inflammatory and even cancer-preventing properties. Our shea butter is also tested annually by Bureau Veritas. Learn more about shea butter at these websites:Global Shea Project 2010, the Shea Project, and ProKarite.
