Our Story: Sofi Tucker started gathering shea nuts for sale at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. By age 19, the widowed mother of four was selling her shea butter, black soap and other homemade hair and skin preparations to villages, missionaries and tourists all over the countryside. Sofi Tucker was our grand mother and Shea Moisture is her legacy. Her story is no different than that of millions of poor women in under-developed countries seeking a better life.
