World Chocolate Shortage and Shea Butter

MSN ran a story yesterday about the world-wide shortage of chocolate. They stated the following:

"A drought in Western Africa and unrest in the Ivory Coast -- the world's biggest cocoa producer -- has combined with rising consumer taste for cocoa-rich dark chocolate to raise concerns about a shortage in supply."

Now what does this have to do with Shea Butter you may be asking yourself. Well, Shea Butter is often used as a cocoa substitute when making chocolate. So if there is a cocoa shortage, the demand for Shea Butter will increase causing the price to go up.

Here at Purely Shea-The Leader in Organic Shea Butter Skincare, we will watch this closely and keep you updated about any Shea Butter shortages.
