American Shea Butter Institute

American Shea Butter InstituteIn the late 90’s, Dr. Samuel Hunter, recognized the failure to get consistent healing results from various imported shea butters which lead to the founding of the American Shea Butter Institute (ASBI) in December 2001.  While on a seven country tour of West Africa’s Shea region, Dr. Samuel Hunter learned that there were many variations in the traditional method for processing Shea Butter. These varitations could occur from village to village, country to country or region to region. To that end, The ASBI made the commitment to develop criteria to normalize Shea Butter of varying quality or composition. Through biochemical analysis the ASBI has developed criteria for a classification system that may be used to compare or differentiate one batch of Shea Butter from another.  The ASBI believes the classification of various Shea Butter, based on a set of strict guidelines, is good for the industry. Most importantly, the classification of various Shea Butter is priceless for the consumer.
