SHEA YEAH’S STORY
The founder Sandra has been passionate about the production of ointments, balsams and oil extracts since her training as a farmer in a Benedictine monastery. The knowledge of herbs fascinates and accompanies her until today and so she has been producing her own cosmetics for her own use for many years.
When shea butter was her «rescuer in need» after sunburn in Ghana, she was overwhelmed. She was tracing the origin of this raw material. Building on her experience and always open to new things, Sandra intuitively followed this call from Ghana. Chaotic, unplanned but full of passion and love, she created the label SHEA YEAH. In order to deepen her knowledge about the skin, Sandra trained as a natural skin therapist.
«create, unite and be»
SHEA YEAH believes in social empowerment by designing cross-cultural creations. It is close to the founder’s heart to keep traditions alive, to celebrate what you have and to create something new out of it. Visualization and creation is always holistic, in agreement with mother earth and the human beings, always with passion, character and a pinch of positive madness. Yeees!

Processes and standards
SHEA YEAH produces with an experienced partner at his side. The Bellevue Pharmacy in Zurich has been characterised by its anthroposophical and homeopathic approach since 1931. To this day, it pays great attention to natural medicine.
All products are consciously made by hand in the pharmacy’s laboratory.
If you look at the overall life cycle assessment of a product, it is clear that about 90% of the environmental impact is caused by the production of raw materials and packaging accounts for about 1%*, so it is more important to look at the procurement of raw materials.
SHEA YEAH has analyzed different packaging solutions extensively. Find out more about the packaging concept and the recommendations for improvement to SHEA YEAH, which was developed for the label by an environmental engineer from ETH Zurich.
