Organic Unrefined Shea Butter
Raw, unrefined, organic Shea Butter sourced from 100% women Shea producers in Northern Ghana. Shea Butter is the oil extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree. These Shea nuts are wild crafted without any chemical fertilizers.
The nuts are gathered by local women, and the oil is extracted by hand using just water (no chemical solvents).
Extremely rich in fatty acids, Shea Butter protects skin from the elements (a.k.a. Free Radicals) including a small percentage of SPF (around 5%) naturally.
Our Shea is hand stirred for several hours, while molten, to prevent the formation of crystals or granules, resulting in a creamy, buttery texture.
Shea Butter has a high melting point, at around 110 degrees. Keep your Shea in a cool place to avoid melting, and prevent crystallization. If Shea is frozen, allow to get to room temperature before attempting to use.
