Shea Butter Refined Organic

INCI Name: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter

Shea Butter is an exotic butter extracted from the kernels of the shea fruit. The shea nut tree (Butyrospermum parkii) is a typical African savannah tree, occuring in a wide girth south of the Sahel from the Gambia to Uganda. The green plum sized fruits contain 1-2 large shining brown seeds from which the fat is extracted.

Shea butter has been used for centuries by the African people as a source of edible fat and for body care. Due to its unique fatty acid composition shea butter is a soft fat, which readily mealts at body temperature, making it a very attractive emollient for many skin care applications. However, the particular strength of the shea butter lies in its high content of unsaponifiables, which gives it very good soothing properties, due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
