Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii)
Emollient butter from the nut of the African Karite tree, expeller extracted and filtered, shea butter has been used for centuries for its skin protectant properties. Shea butter has good skin penetrating properties and it has been reported that ointment bases containing high levels of shea butter release actives at a faster rate than other bases. Stable and resistant to rancidity, and containing natural occurring Vitamins A, D and E. A valuable addition to creams, lotions and body butters.
Our Shea Butter is organically grown, expeller extracted, heated and filtered through diatomaceous earth in a chemical free process that leaves the shea butter deodorized.
