Shea Butter, also known as karite butter, is a natural cosmetic product used as a moisturizer, emollient and to fight against the aging of the skin (wrinkles and scars). It could also be effective for: burns, dry skins and to protect the skin from the ultraviolet rays.
Shea Butter is a natural fat extracted from the fruit of the shea tree by crushing and boiling, it absorbs easily into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling.
Shea Butter has been used by African healers for thousands of years to alleviate maladies of the skin and scalp.
Shea Butter comes from the African shea tree found along the West African Savannah region. It is a wild growing tree that produces tiny, almond-like fruit from which Shea Butter is extracted. The tree itself is not cultivated and takes 40 to 50 years to mature. In most parts of West Africa, destruction of the shea tree is forbidden due to its economic, health and social benefits. (Shea Butter is a valuable source of food in Africa.) Indeed, many herbalists in Africa regard Shea Butter as an invaluable agent for internal and external body purification.
Traditional uses of Shea Butter include: treatments for dry skin, blemishes, skin discoloration, scars and wrinkles, a relaxer for stiff muscles, as an aid for pain from swelling and arthritis, even as a sun screen.
What makes Shea Butter so great for the skin is its high content of nonspecifically fatty acids (comprised mostly of stearic and oleic acids.) These fatty acids are indispensable for moisturizing and retaining the elasticity of the skin. By making up for lipid (fat) deficiency in the epidermal cells, Shea Butter provides the skin with all the essential elements it needs for its good balance.

I just had to write and share how wonderful your product is. My skin has never felt this good. Your Shea Butter is incredible, they are out of this world. My skin use to be so very dry and scaly. Now, it is as smooth as a baby's. Diana
After the first day of use, I am hooked on your Shea Butter. As a massage therapist, my hands have been exposed to so many kinds of products. Unfortunately, my skin has developed an allergy to a common preservative called "parabens". Anything containing said preservative is a "second-degree burn in a bottle" to me. I have lost all the skin on both hands from severe contact dermatitis to this ingredient. It takes 7 weeks for my skin to fully heal from the slightest exposure. I had a small outbreak on my index finger and within the first day of use of Shea Butter, there was been a remarkable progress in healing. I adore the feel of the shea butter and am giving it away as Christmas presents. I highly recommend it to anyone - Emma
Oh, boy...what a great product! I just received them yesterday and am so delighted! Even my boyfriend, who doesn't get too worked up .... loves your products. He has some bad scarring from a motorcycle accident and rough patches on his elbows; I made him a bet that in two weeks, with a twice-a-day rub/application, that he will see great improvement... In any case, they all smell great, without being overwhelming, and are just a treat to use. Thanks again! Kim
I am happy to finally find something that works and smells great, have tried and have been looking at different suppliers of Shea Butter and yours is by far the best. Wonderful and helpful staff, product arrived very quickly and with everything I ordered. The Shea Butter smells divine, texture is great and my skin already feels smooth and soft. Best product I have used in a long time and believe me I have tried a few!!. Fan for life - Jane
I love your shea butters so much I just wanted to write and thank you for making them. I inherited extremely sensitive skin from my mother and could never put any thing on my face without it burning or causing a rash, even all natural products would cause a reaction. I use your shea butter every day with no problem on my face, body, and hair and it even made fine lines around my eyes disappear. I've recommended your shea butter to all my friends and even got my mother, the ultimate skeptic and queen of hypersensitive skin, using it too! I highly recommend it to anyone especially those with sensitive skin or chemical sensitivity. Thank you! - Natalie
My daughter has had eczema since she was born. I have tried many remedies but nothing worked. One of my co-workers brought some your shea butter in for me to try. After a couple of applications I could see a huge difference on her skin. Thank you so much you have a customer for life!- Roxanne
