    1. Hi June, thanks for your question. You can purchase shea butter and palm oil directly from our website. If you add the products to your cart, you will see all the different shipping options/prices at checkout. We do ship worldwide. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi, Mango Butter is in our plans, but any source needs to fit our Fair Trade priorities that support the women and communities we partner with. Typically, Kokum butter is sourced from Brazil. We don’t currently have Fair Trade partnerships outside of Ghana. A Google search on retail sources for both products turns up multiple resources if you need them immediately.
