The Importance of the American Shea Butter Institute
By Joseph Constant
Let me tell you why the American Shea Butter Institute is so important to us and to you as an informed consumer. The American Shea Butter Institute provides consumer and industry education on Shea butter; establishes voluntary standards on the quality of Shea butter entering the USA; engages in basic and applied research to identify Shea butter ingredients or derivatives of its ingredients as new solutions for important problems in nutrition, health care and material science and promotes the benefits of Shea butter in various US industries.
FACTORS THAT LED TO ORGANIZING THE AMERICAN SHEA BUTTER INSTITUTE
Early factors that lead to organizing The American Shea Butter Institute were:
1. Recognition of the extremely wide variations in the quality and potency of Shea Butter entering the United States.
2. Lack of governmental or industrial standards for quality and classification of Shea Butter.
3. Lack of reliable sources of information on Shea Butter.
In 2001, The Institute was organized to fill the existing void on Shea Butter standards and scientific data as well as to serve as the primary source for consumer and industrial Shea Butter information and education.
The ASBI's mission is to provide consumer and industry education on Shea Butter; establishing voluntary standards on quality of Shea Butter entering the USA; providing basic and applied research to identify Shea Butter ingredients or derivatives of its ingredients as new solutions for important problems in nutrition, health care and material science; and promote the benefits of this product for solutions in various US industries.
This is the organization that we’ve needed in this industry for such a long time. At the Institute, they classify various Shea butters imported from Africa into one of the following classes: Class A, Class B, Class C, or Class F where class A is Premium Shea Butter, while class F is poor quality Shea Moisturizer.
