Shea butter comes from the natural fat of the nut obtained from the Karite tree (meaning “tree of life”) grown in West and Central Africa. What sets Shea Butter apart from other seed oils is that it has a much larger healing fraction and contains many nutrients and vitamins, and a rich supply of fatty acids, making it far superior to cocoa butter and other natural butters. The healing properties in Shea Butter are as high as 17% whereas in other seed oils, the healing is often in the range of 1% or less. While other seed oils may have an excellent moisturizing fraction, these oils contain little to no healing fraction.

This emollient butter is known to be extremely therapeutic, helping to heal cracked, aged and damaged skin; it is renowned for its skin softening and moisture retaining ability. It melts at skin temperature making it ideal for lip and body balms. Shea butter will not clog the pores and regular use of this natural emollient can positively treat many skin conditions. It stimulates cellular activity, fights effects of aging, repairs rough damaged skin and also offers UV protection.

Benefits: Shea butter contains Vitamins A, E, and F and is highly compatible with the skin, penetrating easily to leave it feeling soft and smooth.
