Shea Butter, refined

Shea butter is also called African Karite butter. This refined butter is expressed from the pits of the fruit of the African butter tree. It is smooth, creamy and ivory in color although the color may vary from batch to batch, sometimes lighter, sometimes darker. This butter is almost odorless. Our shea butter is cold expeller pressed to remove the impurities. It is not solvent extracted, but mechanically extracted, there are no impurities left whatsoever. Shea is extremely moisturizing and gentle to the skin. In soaps, it gives a very luxurious feel to the finished product. It can also be added to creams and lotions or used alone for massage, skin cream, applied directly on small skin burns or applied to hair.
