Order high quality handcrafted Shea butter for your business here

Toontibo sells traditional high quality handcrafted Shea butter to companies that require top quality and a fair product. We provide ethically sourced Shea butter in a regenerative trading model.

Building a regenerative value chain

Toontibo’s purpose is to reverse the value chain in Shea butter trading that adds value to the source, Africa. Toontibo is co-owned by Dipaliya Women’s Association, producer of shea butter in Ghana, Africa. We pay the processors above the average fees, we give back to the community and build a regenerative ecosystem. We do all that by selling Shea butter – the women’s gold – to the cosmetics and food industry.

Our values

  • Abundance is there, the divide is unfair.
  • We consider it a basic human right that people earn a decent income, including the women processing the high quality handcrafted Shea butter.
  • We aim to create conditions where money (profit) is used and divided transparently, adding value to the whole processing chain – a sustainable chain.
  • We do not help the women; we co-create with them.
  • We do not compete on price – we create value for money.
  • We talk our walk.
