About Us

Our Story

Deluxe Shea Butter Australia is a supplier of premium quality, A-grade, certified organic and fair-trade unrefined shea butter, skincare and soap products, originating from Ghana, West Africa, to Australia and the world.

Our Shea butter is produced and processed by our related company, Deluxe Shea Butter Ghana Ltd, who is certified Organic by Ecocert under the USDA National Organic Program and is certified Fair trade by Ecocert under the Fair for Life Program.

Although incorporated in 2010, the business began operations in 2007 when the two founding brothers formed a partnership with their mother and Auntie, the late Nana Adubea Yeboah II, Traditional Chief of Aduamoa in Kwahu, Ghana. Initially we supplied Shea butter to the Ghanaian community in our adopted hometown of Adelaide, South Australia.

Increased conciousness of the benefits of Shea Butter has seen Deluxe Shea Butter Australia grow steadily from local roots to be an international presence. We hold enough stock to cater for all kinds of customers, whether a large manufacturer or just the occasional user of shea butter because of our strategically placed branch in Accra (in Ghana) and local storage facilities in Adelaide, South Australia.

We understand that our customers expect fast, friendly and reliable service and delivery. At Deluxe Shea Butter Australia we go that extra mile. We are large enough to compete, but small enough to care. We pride ourselves on delivering quality and personal service at a competitive price.

Having grown up in Ghana using shea butter as our family has done for generations, we are passionate about sharing its rejuvenating, healing qualities. We are an ethical company that endorses fair trade, sustainability and caring for the environment.

As a producer and supplier, we work closely with women co-operative groups that operate within our Deluxe Shea Butter Ghana Network of Pickers and Processors located in the northern region of Ghana to pick the shea nuts and process them to the unrefined stage. We possess a robust distribution system where the unrefined shea butter is packaged in Ghana and delivered directly to commercial and individual customers worldwide using reputable freight services. No order is too small or too big.

to bring the benefits of shea butter to the world whilst empowering local individuals and their communities; providing employment and opportunity to create a sustainable quality of life
