About SheaMoisture:

SheaMoisture, committed to serving those who have been beauty underserved, is Sofi Tucker’s lasting and beautiful legacy. A widow and mother of five at age 19, Grandmother Sofi supported her family by selling handmade shea butter soaps and other creations in the village market in Sierra Leone. Sofi became known as a healer who shared the power of shea and African black soap with families across the countryside. She passed her recipes on to her grandson Richelieu Dennis, who founded SheaMoisture and incorporated her wisdom into the brand’s hair and skincare innovations. SheaMoisture products continue to be made in a culturally authentic way to preserve their efficacy, benefits and rich history. The collections are formulated with natural ingredients and the shea butter is ethically sourced from 15 women’s cooperatives in northern Ghana under parent company Sundial Brands’ purpose-driven community commerce business model. Sundial and SheaMoisture were built on the fundamental belief that only trade can bring true economic independence to communities and empower women to break cycles of poverty. The company reinvests directly in the communities it serves by creating economic opportunities for women and other minority entrepreneurs in its ecosystem.
