NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Known as Women's Gold, Shea Butter is renowned for its radiance-boosting, moisturizing benefits-and its power to improve the lives of women in West Africa, where women are solely responsible for the harvesting of the precious ingredient.

The Jergens® skincare team visited these inspiring women in their native Ghana and shot a video chronicling their vital role in the Shea industry and showcasing how they bring radiance into the lives of women around the world. To voice the video, Jergens® Skincare turned to award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson-a truly radiant star and passionate supporter of women.
The powerful, moving video provides a heartfelt, personal look inside the daily lives of the women who collect and harvest Shea nuts that eventually become Shea Butter. Women's Gold is a source of immense pride for these women and reveals how it's a fundamental part of their sense of beauty and the foundation of their economic independence.
The video also highlights Jergens® Skincare's support of the Global Shea Alliance, which seeks to empower more than 16 million women who collect Shea nuts and make Shea Butter across Africa. Jergens® Skincare is pledging a donation to the Global Shea Alliance to support the empowerment of women in West Africa as a part of the brand's celebration of women's radiance, at home and abroad.
In solidarity with these inspiring women, Jergens® Shea products will bear limited-edition "Celebrating Women's Radiance" packaging. By using Jergens® Shea Butter Moisturizers, you share in the secret of Women's Gold and directly impact women halfway across the world-becoming a part of the movement to honor women's inner and outer radiance.
