Benefits of Shea Butter

Learn more about how shea butter is beneficial to your skin’s overall health and how our products can help you find a smarter way to beautiful.

History

The history of Shea Butter as an invaluable skin care product dates back to Ancient Egypt. Queen Cleopatra always kept jars of pure, unrefined shea butter on hand. She knew the finest beauty secret then and Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods is proud to still be bringing it to you today.

Shea Butter comes from a native, wild-growing African tree that produces a tiny, almond-like fruit with a nut inside. Villagers separate the nut from the fallen fruit, then boil and let the butter float to the surface. The butter is then milled and filtered for impurities, packaged in blocks and shipped to us so we can bring it to you. Shea Butter is known as “women’s gold” in Africa because it is a valuable source of income for the women in Ghana.  All Shea Butter from Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods is unrefined, organic, high-quality and always fresh from Ghana in West Africa.

Our Ivory Shea Butter, the “original” Shea Butter, varies from off-white, to beige to light gray.

The shades of color are inevitable with this product as it is with most organic, all-natural products. The smell of Ivory Shea Butter is slightly nutty, and the consistency is rich but relatively light when compared to Yellow Shea Butter. All skin types and all ages including children can benefit from using Ivory Shea Butter.

Our Yellow Shea Butter gets its color from the root of the African Borututu Tree.

It’s added by the Ghanaian women during the milling process to give it extra nutrients. Our Yellow Shea Butter is commonly preferred by people with eczema, psoriasis and other difficult skin conditions, because the it tends to take longer to absorb and creates a better moisturizing effect. Yellow Shea Butter is also a bit harder than the Ivory, and when used on fair skin, can give it a light glow or slight tan look.

If you suffer from any of these skin conditions, Shea Butter will effectively soothe, moisturize and heal.

I finally got around to making my first batch of body butter and made a little mistake when it came to scenting. It couldn’t have worked out better. I accidentally grabbed the cacao essential oil instead of the almond and the fragrance is divine. I am planning on making the soap next. This body butter is so luxurious and I have never used anything that’s make your skin feel as good as this does. I can’t wait to try more of your recipes. Thank-you for providing such a wonderful product.
