Raw organic African Shea Butter
Our shea butter is a 100% natural multi-purpose vitamin A & E cream which originates from the fruit of the Shea Tree. Shea butter contains exceptional moisturizing properties for both skin and hair. Ghanians have used it for centuries to treat various skin problems including: burns, blemishes, eczema, wrinkles and stretch marks.
It is also used in hair conditioners, creams, lotions, soaps, balms, salves and cleansers. Shea Butter is able to be absorbed quickly into the skin and is excellent for dry skin, stretch marks, cracked heels, peeling and evening skin tone.
It has been proven clinically to prevent not only stretch marks but to have anti aging properties and is able to promote the healing of burns while minimizing any scarring.
Shea Butter can also protect against inflammations. If you do have a minor burn or cut you can apply the Shea Butter directly to it. You can also apply Shea Butter to sunburn to promote healing and to help decrease the pain from this condition.
Shea Butter is excellent when used on dry skin and is considered to be possibly the most naturally moisturizing product that you can use. Our Shea Butter is cold pressed which means that is has not been extracted using solvents and chemicals.
Shea Butter is also used to relieve aching muscles and to treat rheumatism. It can also help to alleviate colds as it is able to be used as a decongestant for the nasal mucous membranes.( Disclosure: these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA)
What is the difference between white and yellow shea butter?
There is only one difference: yellow shea butter gets its color from the Palm Oil and borututu tree, which is known to heal inflammations.
Does Shea Butter go bad?
Yes, under proper conditions, it will stay fresh for at least 2 years. When contaminated with water or under constant heat, the butter goes bad faster.

3. What If my products melt during transit?
During transit and during warmer months, your products are prone to changing textures such as softening or even melting due to extreme temperatures.
If this occurs, prior to opening your jar, place the items in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow them to harden. DO NOT OPEN TO CHECK FOR MELTING BEFORE REFRIGERATION. This can cause spilling which will result in loss of product.
Our hand-whipped process adds tiny air bubbles that increase the volume, just like whipping cream. If a whipped product melts, the air bubbles collapse and the volume is decreased.
So, although the jar was filled to the top initially, there will be less volume in the container (since it has deflated) and the container may actually look half full.
After cooling, a melted Whipped Butter will be the consistency of a body balm and is still a great moisturizer!
