Want Shea Butter? Holler at Estella’s Pride!

Hello Naturals in Nigeria,

New on the scene is Estella’s Pride, here to bring you all-natural shea butter and oils you can trust!

Why buy from us?

A lot of Shea butter sold today isn’t the real deal.

When Shea butter isn’t authentic, it doesn’t have the qualities you seek.

The Shea butter Estella’s Pride stocks is gotten from the Middle Belt of Nigeria and neighbouring Ghana.

We are very familiar with the people who make it, and are well acquainted with the production process from start to finish.

What we’ve got

That’s not all. We’ve also got Cocoa Shea, Whipped Shea butter, 100% Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Ginger Oil, Jojoba Oil, as well as other oils.


Find us!

We are based in the Lagos area, but we do deliver to other locations!
