To start an Shea-butter business, money is not the most important thing. You need to have the knowledge, the right idea and the market needed.

Shea butter is a substance extracted from fruits of the tree through the process of crushing and boiling.  The name 'Shea Butter' is short for 'Shea nut Butter'.  The tree is also called "The Karite tree", which means 'the tree of life'.  It is called this name because of the numerous healing characteristics it possesses. The tree grows mostly in Africa. In the dry Savannah belt of West Africa, the tree is found growing wild.   

Shea butter is used for a lot of activities ranging from edible activities to ritual activities.  In West Africa, especially Ghana, Nigeria and Togo, it is used as cooking oil. In some parts of Africa, it is rubbed on the body believing it can stop bullets. It is used for a lot of things in Africa and the world generally, but the commonest of its uses is against skin infections and irritations. It treats skin disorders like eczema, burns, rashes, stretch marks, acne, wrinkles, skin discolorations, itching and other skin problems. It also provides natural protection from the sun's UV rays. It is also an excellent agent for softening skin. It can also be used to maintain hair moisturization especially in dry hair.     

Shea butter is an excellent natural product for maintaining both body and hair vitality. But one of the greatest problems of shea butter is the availability of the pure one. Most of the shea butter marketed worldwide are mixed with one product or the other and once this is done, its effectiveness and quality drops. This is the reason why some people use shea butter over a long period of time and notice little or no change.   
Shea butter contains an ingredient called Cinnamic Acid. This cinnamic acid is an acid bound to other ingredients and once this shea butter loses its purity, the natural bounded acid decreases which results in the overall ineffectiveness of the shea butter. Irrespective of the quality of the shea butter, it does one thing; it helps in skin moisturization. Once shea butter has been adulterated, it is very unlikely that it would give the results of pure shea butter.   

Nigeria produces one of the highest quality shea butter in Africa and the world in general. In Nigeria, pure shea butter is available at the cost of almost nothing. It is used mostly by women for hair and skin treatment. A few use it for cooking. In the Northern part of the country, it is called Kadanya and in the southern part is commonly known as Ori. The purest shea butter is sold locally by market women. Even though it can be found in shops at a higher price, the quality is lower than that of the ones locally sold. 

Now what are the characteristics of good shea butter? Shea butter is soft, creamy and beige in color. At room temperature, it is the texture of butter but once heated slightly, it melts. The smell is not exactly nice.  Sometimes, you may come across shea butter that has a perfumed smell; that is the kind that has been adulterated and no matter what has been written on it, be it '100% shea butter', it is not pure.     
Also, once shea butter has any color apart from beige, it is not pure.Sometimes, you may come across brown or white shea butter, it has been adulterated and if you go ahead and buy this kind, do not expect the results pure shea butter produces. Another way of knowing pure shea butter is that it immediately relieves itching. If it does not do this, then it is fake. Even though shea butter does not have a pleasant smell, once it is rubbed on the skin, it is immediately absorbed by the skin and does not have any smell. Sometimes, your skin may feel greasy after you rub shea butter; this is not supposed to be so.     

All the characteristics of shea butter are found in Nigerian shea butter.    Shea butter is produced in numerous places but what matters is the quality. This is because the source of the shea butter determines the strength of its healing. So the most important thing you should know about shea butter if you are looking for the pure one is the source.   

Nigeria, the leading exporter of shea butter in the world over the last two years sold an estimated US$300,000, the former Acting Executive Director of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Mr Aliyu Lawal said, speaking at a one-day awareness workshop on "harnessing the untapped potential of shea butter for export" in Lafia, about 300 km from Abuja, Lawal said that Nigeria had recorded a tremendous increase in the exportation of shea butter. The by-product of shea nuts was capable of being a major foreign exchange earner for Nigeria if well developed, Lawal said. He observed that the processors’ adherence to quality assurance and best processing practices also contributed to the success achieved in its production and exportation. He praised the women, whom he said, formed the majority of processors in Nigeria. He however, lamented that in spite of the leap, the commodity was yet to get its desired place at the international market. He called for a more concerted effort to develop the industry. Loko said that the state government had packaged incentives to attract investors to the sector.

To start an export business, money is not the most important thing. You need to have the knowledge, the right idea and the market needed. There is a promise to assist any Nigerian with the right will power. What you need to succeed is Integrity, honesty, and diligence. A lot of Nigerians are operating a highly lucrative home based export company and they are making a steady Income of between N50 000 and N500 000 monthly, regulary with no capital investment, no risk at their spare time.   The profit from the first transaction can be ploughed back and an investor will be able to build up his capital base.   

Anyone into the Shea butter export business can work with a lot of Nigerians living in the UK to identify the right product in the Nigerian market because they know the market and the terrain and get regular request from such Nigerians from time to time.   

This is the type of services given to Nigerians who no next to nothing about Shea butter export and don’t have enough money but with small contract, you can then grow big to execute bigger contracts.   

Shea-butter Export has a value chain; you need to plan your export, then you need to get a buyer who is called contract source. The next step is to source for the product followed by the logistics process and documentation, before you eventually ship the products.   

The aggregated export service providers are professional bankers, oil and gas professionals and retirees; some of these people have funds and they want to go into the lucrative export market. If they subscribe to these services, the bills will go to these category of people every month on the available export contract. If there is any they are interested in, they contribute and they have return.


The NEPC is committed to a beneficial partnership with key stakeholders in the sheabutter business to improve the quality of the Nigeria sheabutter.  This is because to meet the demands of the International buyers, sheabutter need to meet the demanding purity and consumer safety standard. On one of the projects in Kogi State, the lead funder, standard and trade development facility provided funds to fund modern equipment for extracting but from sheanut together with analysis and capacity building on improving product quality and safety.

The Community in Saki provided land, the local government provided some infrastructure and the NEPC, the implementing agency for the project provided the building that houses the equipment.  The NEPC realized that local cooperatives that owned the facilities lack the capital, technical experience and knowhow to manage it sustainably. To fill the gap, it brought in domestic investors from shea butter sector with proven track record of working with rural producers. 


There are jobs for this category of people especially the season of exportable products in the Northern parts of the country.    

If you are living in the North, you can go to Jigawa state, go to Babadu or Megatere market; there is also a market between Bernin Kudu and Gwaram and in most major commodity markets in the North and elsewhere, you can meet any of the sellers of sesame seed that live in these towns and tell them and that you need a large quantity of sesame seed.  A bag of sesame seed is about 80kg to 100kg.  All you need to do is to arrange the truck as well as people that will load  and negotiate with the driver. You will need to calculate all the expenses e.g a truck load will carry 30 metric tones; if a truck will collect N240 000.
