What our Customers say about Nilotica shea butter

After a lot of searching I landed on Nilotica. Now it is a my secret ingredient that I use in almost all my products.

Helle, Product formulator, Denmark

My whole family uses Nilotica for everything. In fact we use it soo much, a 500g jar lasts only about 4 weeks. And knowing it empowers women up North and that it is natural.. It just makes me happy :).

Brenda, Uganda

When customers ask me to recommend ingredients, Nilotica is almost always on the list. It is clean, pure and effective so it helps my clients create products that meet customer demands.

Kim, Product expert, Netherlands

Before I used Nilotica I was worried about all the ingredients in the skincare products for my kids. Now with Nilotica I have peace of mind that I am giving them the best.

Angela, Mother of 2, United Kingdom

My skin is sensitive and I couldn’t find a good cream that worked. Pure Nilotica is now all I need to keep my skin healthy. I even carry it to the gym!

Immaculate, Mother of 4, Uganda

When I was told it was so good you can eat it I just had to try it on toast. And it was fine! I won’t say it was delicious, but simply knowing that it is so healthy makes me happy to use it on my little boy.
