About Shea (and The Old Factory)

The main focus of SHEA is to provide safe natural products suitable for those with sensitive skin (in other words, anyone can use them). SHEA also makes some of the finest artisan candles that will light up your face with the biggest smile. Our specialty range of foot care products bring relief to those suffering from foot pain due to plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and Achilles tendinitis.
We also run very affordable soap and candle making workshops for groups where participants get to take home the items they make. Participants are guided all the way from start to finish to ensure everything goes well and that they make soaps and candles they can be proud of. A short presentation is run before classes to stimulates participants to be more mindful¬† of the products they use daily. We believe that small changes can make a big impact on ours, and our family’s lives.
