REsources is the result of 14 years of commitment by its president to the women of southwestern Burkina Faso to structure and develop an excellent organic fair trade shea butter industry.
Recognized by the most demanding cosmetic laboratories and certified since 2008 as bio-fair trade, it was necessary to go further and to be able to offer you these materials directly at home according to your needs. In order to increase the level of transformation, we have approached the best laboratories in the food and cosmetics industry. This allows us to offer you 3 different levels of quality: raw shea butter, slightly deodorized raw shea butter and refined shea butter.
Thus, REsources was created in 2019, to offer you Burkina Faso Shea butter directly to your home with the level of processing best suited to your uses.
Since 2021, REsources has been developing new fair trade supply chains in West Africa, based on its expertise in the construction of supply chains, on certification aspects as well as on quality procedures, still on Shea butter but also on other materials such as Hibiscus flower.
Located in the heart of the lower Ardèche in France, REsources also offers organic essential oils from French producers who are as passionate about their product as they are about preserving biodiversity and the environment.

REsources est le fruit de 14 ans d’engagement de son président auprès des femmes du sud-ouest du Burkina Faso pour structurer et développer une filière de beurre de karité bio-équitable d’excellence.
Reconnue par les laboratoires cosmétiques les plus exigeants et certifiée depuis 2008 bio-équitable, il était nécessaire d’aller plus loin et de pouvoir vous proposer ces matières directement chez vous au rythme de vos besoins. Afin de pouvoir augmenter le niveu de transformation, nous nous sommes rapprochés des meilleurs laboratoires de l’agroalimentaire et de la cosmétique. Ce qui nous permet de vous proposer désormais 3 niveaux de qualité différents : du beurre de karité brut, du brut légèrement désodorisé et du beurre de karité raffiné.
Ainsi, REsources a été créée en 2019, pour vous proposer le beurre de Karité du Burkina Faso directement chez vous avec le niveau de transformation le plus adapté à vos usages.
Depuis 2021, s’appuyant sur son expertise en construction de filière, sur les aspects de certification comme en démarche qualité, REsources développe de nouvelles filières équitables en Afrique de l’Ouest toujours sur le beurre de Karité mais aussi sur d’autres matières comme la fleur d’Hibiscus.
Installée au coeur de la basse Ardèche en France, elle vous propose également les huiles essentielles biologiques de producteur français tout aussi passionnés par leur produit que par la préservation de la biodiversité et de l'environnement.
