Shea how I love thee! Shea oh shea, how magnificent are thy properties. Recognized the world over as a premium head-to-toe beauty ingredient, shea butter is an ingredient we can’t live without. It is gentle enough for babies, people with sensitive skin and “regular folk” alike.
Shea butter also known as African Karite butter is produced from the nuts of the Karite Tree found in countries in West & Central African such as Ghana, Burkina Faso & Togo . The nuts are roasted, grounded into a meal and kneaded with water. The oil is then separated from the water and placed in gourds to solidify to produce what we know as shea butter. The color of the butter varies from batch to bath, ranging from beige to a yellow/green.
Why we love Shea Butter: It is extremely therapeutic and helps to restore cracked, aged or damaged skin. It also has a natural SPF of 6 which makes it a great after-sun moisturizer or in combination with other sun protection products. Shea butter is one of the best butters you can use in caring for your skin because of its high vitamin content. It is also believed to assist in reduce inflammation and wrinkles, soothe eczema and dermatitis and minimize stretch marks.
In warmer climates, products containing shea butter can develop “little bumps/grittiness.” This is due to the fat crystals from the shea. If this happens, your product is still good. The warmth of your hands should melt the “grits.”
