One of my favorite ingredient — is Shea Butter! I was happy to receive a Shea Butter Peppermint Lip Balm & African Lemongrass & Lavender Shea Butter soap for review, from BeadforLife — a non-profit organization, founded by three American women — to help the women of Uganda learn skills that would allow them to earn living. The products are rich in quality Shea Butter — as well as boosts essential oils and organic, natural ingredients for your beauty enjoyment pleasure! I absolutely love the products! I was happy to use it on my entire family. My toddler has sensitive skin (eczema) and the products were very beneficial to his healthy skin needs!

BeadforLife began by teaching women to make beautiful beaded jewelry out of recycled paper.”

BeadforLife makes it possible for women of Uganda to earn their livelihoods by farming and gathering Shea nuts — which BeadforLife takes to make the Shea nuts into Shea butter products, including creams, soaps and lip balms. All sales — gives tens of thousands of poor women — the potential to be empowered .

Currently, BeadforLife is working with 740 women, most of whom are farmers, to educate them about how to improve the quality of their farms and bring their agricultural goods to market.
