Karité is a brand featuring sustainably sourced shea butter moisturizers created by board-certified dermatologist Dr.Naana Boakye and her sisters.

The sisters set out to create a moisturizer similar to the raw, unrefined shea butter they grew up using, but that would be easier to spread on the skin. The shea butter is sourced from Ghana and blended with plant-based botanicals and vitamins to make a moisturizer that is safe and extremely hydrating for all ages, genders, skin types and skin tones. Every purchase supports the livelihood of women-led shea cooperatives in Northern Ghana.
