Shea Radiance's Mission
To create eco-luxury beauty products from quality ingredients delivered in sustainable packaging while positively impacting the lives of women.

The Main Ingredient
Shea Radiance's key ingredient is shea butter comes from renewable ans sustainable sources. Shea butter comes from shea trees, which grow predominantly in West Africa.  It takes 50 years for shea trees to mature and they can live up to 300 years. Shea butter is produced from a nut in the core of the fruit that the shea tree produces twice a year. Shea trees are carefully tended by local farmers and they grow without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. Traditionally, shea trees were not cut when clearing land for farming because the shea tree was so valuable. Recently however, shea trees are being cut for charcoal and firewood. When shea farmers are paid fairly for their products, they are more inclined to protect the shea trees from being cut down, thereby helping to sustain the environment.

Financial and Social Commitment to Local Shea Producing Communities
Shea Radiance spent time training and working closely with eight cooperatives in Northern Nigeria. With training support and the provision of locally manufactured technology, women were taught to add value to their labor by producing the best quality shea butter. Shea Radiance's goal is to establish a viable business entity that will be a sustainable source of income and economic activity for the women, their families and the entire community.

The Multiplier Effect
By processing raw shea nuts into shea butter within the local communities, the women producers  add value to the product prior to export. This allows them to make a significantly higher income from the sale of shea butter than the sale of unprocessed shea nuts. The impact of our decision to produce within the local communities, extends beyond the shea collectors and producers to the community at large. As the volume of shea production increases within a community, the need for supporting services like transportation, packaging, warehousing and banking increase. The positive economic impact spreads through the community.

Strategic Collaborations and Partnerships
Shea Radiance has partnered with GIZ to increase the quality of shea butter produced and to allow for larger scale production within selected  communities through a pre-financing and capacity building program. Shea Radiance with support from USAID/WATH (West Africa Trade Hub) seeks create international awareness of the benefits of West African Shea Butter as a viable alternative to petroleum and mineral oils in cosmetic formulations.

About Shea Radiance
Shea Radiance is a Columbia, Maryland based eco-luxury beauty brand that was founded in 2005 by husband and wife team Shola and Funlayo Alabi.

The Alabi’s founded Shea Radiance after they started using pure unrefined shea butter to develop skincare for their children. Long familiar with the legendary power of shea, the Alabi’s concocted a product that was the only solution for their sons severe dry skin and eczema. Soon, friends and family members began to make requests and encouraged the Alabi’s to sell their product. Shea Radiance went from home use to farmers market stalls and is now on sold at premiere salons and spas as well as select Whole Foods markets, independent chains and online.

Shea Radiance re-directs 10% of net profit to women shea producers and currently supports eight co-ops in Nigeria. Shea Radiance has also grown from one main line, Shea Radiance Body, and added Shea Radiance Hair and Shea Radiance Spa in November 2011. Shea Radiance has received numerous accolades for its all natural, fairly traded and high quality products, Innovative Green Packaging Award – winning sustainable packaging and overall social responsibility.

Shola and Funlayo Alabi are both actively involved in Shea Radiance with Shola overseeing back of house operations and Funlayo taking the lead up-front. Everyday the Alabis, and the rest of the Shea Radiance team, strive to demonstrate the exceptional beauty of shea.

Funlayo Alabi is the President and Creative Director of Shea Radiance.
She was born in Manchester, England and raised in Nigeria. She received her undergraduate degree from Howard University and an MBA in Management from Regent University.
