About Shea Butter
Historically, Shea butter has been used in Africa to protect the skin especially that of a newly born baby as it purity makes it gentle and non-drying to their sensitive skin.
Aviela started in 2007 after Patricia Monney, the founding director, visited her family back in Ghana along with her husband, Chris and daughter, Charissa.
The women from Gurugu who make our unrefined Shea butter try their best to produce Grade A Shea butter which has the highest source of vitamin A and E.
We believe that beauty is found in the most simple and natural things. Aviela, a dagaara word from Northern Ghana which means “It’s beautiful”,
