This butter extracted from the Shea Nut is unrefined and not processed in any way. Therefore the product will have a mild nutty odor and may have vary in colour. It is solid at room temperature and rather hard in consistency.
Used predominantly for skin care, Shea Butter is hailed for its protecting and emollient properties. Rich in cinnamon acid, it also protects the skin from UV rays and therefore can be included in skin care products for the sun. It can also be used to make massage butters, body butters, lip balms, as a moisturizing agent in soaps and shaving creams, and as a treatment for minor skin wounds and irritations.
