  Shea Butter, Naturally Refined
Naturally refined Butyrospermum parkii butter. Pure white and odorless.


I've never been a real fan of Shea Butter until I sampled this rich creamy luxury. Now, UNrefined Shea Butter is (in my personal opinion!) not pleasant at all. Brownish, and smelly. Not for me. But most refined Shea butter on the marketplace is refined via the use of hexane, and I don't really want to use that in skin care. Finally we found a source for a naturally refined Shea Butter…extracted by crushing the nuts of the Karite tree, heating and repeatedly straining and filtering the resulting oil. The result? A light creamy white emollient, wonderful for dry and delicate skin. At room temperature, our Shea Butter is a bit softer than either Cocoa or Mango butters.

Shea Butter has been tested and proven effective at diminishing various signs of aging, regenerating skin in cases of sunburns and scars, wrinkle reduction, and both helping to prevent and reverse sun damage.

Available in 4 oz or 16 oz (1 lb) bags. Please note that we have recently changed the packaging on this Shea Butter. In the past we carefully scooped it into plastic jars. This made for attractive packaging, but was terribly labor intensive. In order to maintain our current pricing, we have had to eliminate the manual packing into jars. Our shea butter is now cut into chunks, bagged, and sealed. (Our staff is MUCH happier. Packaging the Shea Butter was everyone's least favorite task.)

ALLERGY NOTE: Those individuals with BOTH a latex allergy and a nut allergy may react to Shea Butter.
