Shea Butter XO in a Nutshell

About Shea Butter XO and The Importance of Shea Butter Products

Shea Butter XO in a Nutshell

The phrase “Skin’s Best Friend” refers to the knowledge that people have about shea butter. The reason why we created the brand, Shea Butter XO.

Shea Butter XO, was established by Marketa and Alena, who wanted to educate others about the importance of skincare.

After working with a renowned holistic medicine expert the Late Prof. Paul Henderson for seven years, Marketa gained a deeper understanding of the healing properties of essential oils. She then focuses on creating high-quality blends. Alena, on the other hand, is a motivational speaker, an energy architect, and a registered holistic aesthetician.

Originally, the goal of Shea Butter XO was to educate people about the skin-nourishing properties of shea butter by making body butter. Through this activity, they were able to prove that it is the skin’s best friend. Today, they have a wide variety of high-quality blends that can be customized.


The company’s small yet strong team is made up of like-minded individuals who share the same beliefs about skincare.

Skin has no gender…

Like the rest of our bodies, our skin needs nourishment and care to stay healthy. At Shea Butter XO, we believe that gender should not be a barrier to skin wellness.

One of the most common myths about skin care is that it is exclusively for women. This misconception is because the term is associated with beauty products. However, skincare is not only about the appearance of your skin. It also encompasses the overall health of your body. Even though our skin is the largest organ of our body, it is still important to take into account its well-being.

Organic is the way forward…

The elements found in our bodies are the same as those found in the planet. It is no surprise that harmful chemicals found in some products are just as harmful to us as they are to the planet. We have to be conscious of what we eat and how we care for our skin in order to maintain its health.

At Shea Butter XO, we believe that our faith in nature is not only a powerful healing force for humans, but it also serves as an effective protector of the planet.

Sustainability is not a choice but a responsibility… 

As a company, we are conscious of the impact that we have on the environment. We are committed to being as responsible as possible when it comes to our products. We never use chemicals that are harmful to the environment.

Respect for all life-forms is the basis of coexistence… 

Being pet-owners, it is our goal at Shea butter XO to create a work environment that is pet-friendly. We believe that animals are as important to the ecosystem as humans are, and we should learn to respect other life forms.

We do not use animals’ products in our blends. All of our ingredients are tested on real people to ensure that they are not harmful to animals. We also do not support animal cruelty and only use sources that share the same beliefs.


“There is a time for fun and there is a time for work,” a motto we stringently follow. While our work life is fun, our work code is strict and consists of three values we never waver from… 

Quality Assurance… 

At Shea butter XO are very proud of the quality of our products. Sourcing only the finest organic ingredients to the creation of our blends. We are dedicated to bringing you the best possible blends that are made with the highest possible standards.

This is why we list down all of the ingredients that go into our blends on our website. We also take it upon ourselves to provide our customers with any necessary warnings.

With Shea butter XO, we aim to achieve two primary goals…

Educate everyone…   

Shea Butter XO’s goals is to educate people about the benefits of using high-quality organic and all-natural skin care products. Through spreading the word about the importance of skin health.

The brand strongly holds on to this basic sentiment that Marketa started out with- educating everyone so that more and more people can benefit from this miraculous skincare solution. 

With the primary focus being on Shea benefits, we also strive towards spreading awareness about the importance of skin health and wellness and the need to go natural. 

Having learnt it the hard way herself, Marketa has always said, “By the time we realise how important it is to take care of our skin, it is often too late.” We want to educate people before it’s too late for them. 

Make skincare hassle-free…

Both Marketa and Alena, who are both working single mothers, have a good understanding of the hectic lifestyle that most people face. They know that one of the main reasons why people tend to neglect their skin is because they don’t have the time to keep up with their skincare routine. Having benefited from their own experience, Marketa and Alena decided to introduce people to the benefits of using a simple yet effective one-step solution known as Shea butter.

Now that you have joined the ranks of skin guardians, you can nourish and tone your skin with the help of other products such as cocoa butter, vitamins, and essential oils. These high-concentration blends can address various skin needs, such as hydration, anti-aging, and toning. They can also be incorporated into your daily schedule.

Taking the one-step cause further, Shea butter XO also offers custom blends for people with specific skin conditions.


At Shea Butter XO, we believe that your skin deserves the best. We thrive hard to ensure that it gets what it deserves. Our blends are carefully crafted to live up to their reputation of being your skin’s best friend. All Shea butter XO blends, premade and custom-made, are produced under the strict (a little too strict if you ask us) supervision of Marketa herself. Each one of our blends is… 

Undiluted and Non-toxic… 

One of the reasons Marketa decided to make Shea body butter blends was the absolute dearth of high-concentration Shea butter products in the market. Some supposed Shea body butters with as low as 20 per cent Shea butter in them. With Marketa’s primary goal of familiarizing people with the boon of a natural skincare that Shea butter is, Shea butter XO blends come with 70 per cent or more of the finest quality Shea butter (Unrefined Grade A) that has been ethically sourced from Ghana, Africa and blend it with other organic ingredients including Cocoa butter, Carrier Oils, Essential Oils and Vitamins. You can read more about our ingredients here.

We do not dilute down our Shea butter formulations with cheap oils or synthetic junk. We have a strict policy against using parabens, silicons, artificial fragrances, SLS or any other synthetic and chemically produced ingredients. 

Perfectly Proportioned…

All our formulations are centred around Shea butter with no blend having any less than 70 per cent Shea butter in it. The Shea butter is then blended with Cocoa butter to optimize its benefits and with Coconut and Avocado oil to ensure a smoother texture.

Another important factor that requires careful study and consideration is the essential oil ratio. With so many champions of natural wellness out there advocating the countless benefits and uses of all things natural and organic, we know it would be hard for you  to believe that nature, when used incorrectly, can be dangerous, especially when thinking of essential oils. Essential oils are highly potent healing forces but using them without a thorough knowledge and proper understanding can be fatal. While some seemingly harmless oils are harmful to pregnant women, others, when used in more than recommended doses,turn toxic.

Shea butter XO issues appropriate warnings if and when desirable.

The proportioning of all our blends is closely monitored by Marketa herself.

Temperature Controlled…

Another aspect that plays a key role while creating a Shea butter blend is the temperature. While too much heat can result in considerably diminishing the nutritional value of the butter. It can also lead to reduced healing abilities of other ingredients including Cocoa butter and the carrier and essential oils. Sometimes even rendering the oils absolutely useless. The butter needs to be heated to just the right temperature to blend the oils in.
