Mmm...shea butter lip balm, as luxurious as a week at a spa.

Lulu Life brings the nutritive properties of Sudan's nilotica shea oil to your lips in a light, creamy natural balm. Nilotica shea nuts yield a light oil that can be combined with natural beeswax and easily transformed into lip balm with very limited processing.

For generations, Sudanese women have tended lulu (shea nut) trees, as this source of nutrition bears its fruit just when hunger peaks during Sudan's dry season. Long a diet staple in Southern Sudan, lulu oil now brings a necessary income to hundreds of Sudanese families. The Lulu Livelihoods program was founded in 2000 by the French non-government organization MEDIC (Medical Emergency and Development International Committee) in response to rampant hunger and need in conflict torn Sudan.

Over the past decade, Lulu Livelihoods has created an infrastructure for a sustainable shea oil industry for the women of Southern Sudan, ensuring the rights of Sudanese women as the traditional guardians of Sudan's lulu tree. Processing lulu oil is extremely labor-intensive, but with proper storage, it can be preserved year round for use. Through the careful organization of nut collection sites and oil processing centers, enough lulu oil can be produced in Southern Sudan to meet local demand and to convert surplus oil into marketable skin care products.
