Knowing the shea nut

Shea -- known in the local Dioula language as karité ("life") -- generally grows wild, with

little need for any special cultivation or nourishment. Almost all parts of the tree have

some practical use. The bark is an ingredient in traditional medicines against certain

childhood ailments and minor scrapes and cuts. The shell of the nuts can repel mosquitoes.

Above all, the fruity part of the nut, when crushed, yields a vegetable oil that can be

used in cooking, soap-making and skin and hair care. Harvesting the nuts and making the

butter have traditionally been women's work. Men usually are involved only in transport and

Unprocessed shea nuts have been exported to Europe for decades, primarily for the

manufacture of chocolate in Switzerland and the UK.
They are then buried in pits which causes the pulp to ferment and disintegrate and produces

enough heat to prevent germination. The Shea nuts are dried for a few days and are later

shelled and winnowed, usually by hand. The kernels are dried further to reduce moisture

content from about 40 percent to about 7 percent.
Seemingly Buyers specify their own quality standards for purchases of shea nuts and shea

butter. The following is a benchmark for the composition of the shea nut required for

Knowing your "Cotton"


Cotton is a vegetable fibre obtained from the mature capsule of the cotton plant, a shrub about 40 cm high, with leaves and flowers of a red or yellow colour. When the flower is fecundated it loses its petals and within 25 days a capsule surrounded by a leaf called bract grows. The capsule is sustained by a cup and has a drop shape rounded at the lower extremity. Inside the capsule there are from five to eight seeds on which the fibre developed. When the capsule is mature it opens into four parts showing the cotton ball. On the same plant the maturation of the capsules does not occur simultaneously, therefore more passages are required for the harvest of the cotton. The harvest is carried out a week after maturation. The first operation after harvesting is husking, which permits the removal of the fibres from the seeds. Then the cotton is carded and combed so as to eliminate all the impurities. 4000 fibers is the seed average. Staple length = 1/8" - 2.5" (0.32 - 6.35cm) -  for manufacturing yarns, fabrics, 7/8" - 11/4" (2.22 - 3.18cm) is standard.
