SHEA BUTTER is one of the main ingredients in our smooth BODY BUTTERS. Also known as Karite Butter, it is extracted from the nut of the karite nut tree which grows in the semi-arid savannah regions or West and Central Africa.
It is known for its excellent nourishing, rejuvenating and moisturizing benefits and is particularly well suited to damaged and dry skin. It also offers great protection from the elements by forming a protective barrier over the skin. It contains beneficial vegetable fats that promote cell regeneration and circulation. Shea Butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E, F and other essential vitamins needed for good skin balance. It has been known to soothe and heal skin irritations.
Shea Butter is sometimes called "womens gold" because extracting the butter from the nuts gives employment and income to hundreds of thousands of rural African village women.
Please note: If you are allergic to latex, you may be sensitive to shea butter and will want to do a small patch test before you slather shea butter all over.
