Shea Butter

Delicately Crafted & Nutrient Rich

Gently hand extracted from the nut of the Shea Tree and rich in vitamins and nutrients, Shea Butter has been used by West Africans for hundreds of years to not only nourish, heal and protect, dry rough skin naturally but also to moisturize hair keeping it soft and supple replenishing it natural nutrients.

What is Shea Butter?

Shea butter is an all-natural product. It is a creamy-colored fatty substance made from the nuts of karite nut trees (Butyrospermum parkii) that grow wild in the savannah regions of West and East Africa. While shea butter has a wide variety of applications, it is most well known for its exceptional dermatological and cosmetic healing properties.

How is Shea Butter Crafted

Shea nuts are extracted from the fruit by crushing and boiling. Shea nuts are picked, cracked, grilled and pounded to extract the butter which is then boiled in water until the fresh shea butter rises to the surface. It is then scooped into gourds and left to cool and set. Although these artisanal methods result in smaller output, no chemicals or synthetic agents are needed at any stage.

Shea butter may also be extracted by pressing in an expeller type press which cuts 3-5 hours off the extraction time. Again, no chemicals or synthetics are needed. The end product of either method is raw, or unrefined shea butter
