Former Miss Malaika Beauty Queen takes trip to shea butter processing plant
Shea butter is a beauty ingredient used in many cosmetic products due to its countless beauty benefits.
Though shea butter does not receive as much praise as it deserves from it’s country of origin, the production of this kind of butter is the main livelihood for more than 900,000 rural women mostly in the northern region of Ghana.
It is one of the most sought after products for export yet the producers (usually rural folks) tend to benefit least from the final value of the commodity.
Former Miss Malaika Beauty Queen, Hamamat Montia took a trip to one of the local shea butter processing plants in the northern region of Ghana and you’ll be amazed just how the ‘beauty butter’ is extracted from shea nuts.
