Shea Butter

Pure African shea butter is a fat extracted from the nuts of the African shea tree. The location of the shea trees and time of harvest changes some of the butter’s properties, including its color, fatty acid content, and scent. The natural ivory color of the raw butter takes on a deep yellow tint when borututu root is added to it. This nut butter has many uses, and can be used as a full-body moisturizer from head to toe. Discover the benefits, types, and uses of our pure African shea butter.    Benefits of Shea Butter: Shea fat contains high levels of fatty acids, including oleic acid, stearic acid and linoleic acid. These fatty acids form a protective barrier on your skin. This barrier guards against moisture loss, irritation and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. These fatty acids also contain antioxidants that help your skin repair itself after damage from the sun and environmental contaminants. Shea butter melts at body temperature, which allows your skin to quickly absorb it. This provides nearly instant relief for irritated, itchy, and dry skin. Using the butter of shea trees may also provide relief from cracked heels, stretch marks, scars, burns, frizzy hair, rashes, acne, dermatitis, hives, eczema and psoriasis.    Types of Shea Butter:    Ivory: This is natural shea butter. It varies in color from ivory to light yellow and can sometimes have a natural greyish tint. It offers a light consistency and slightly nutty scent. Ivory shea butter benefits all skin types, and it’s ideal for use on sensitive skin.   Yellow: Yellow shea butter combines the fat from shea nuts with extract of the Borututu tree that is native to Africa. The borututu provides a beautiful golden yellow color.    Butter Samples: Try our shea butter by choosing our sample pack of cosmetic butters. These small containers are also ideal for travel or keeping in your office at work. Try the different butters in these sample sizes to find out how each of them works best for you.   Bulk: Once you’ve found your favorite type of shea butter, save money and purchase it in bulk. We offer five and ten pound blocks. The butter has a shelf life of two years, and you can use the bulk package to refill your small sample containers or toiletries for home and travel use.   Reasons to choose Better Shea Butter: We source our shea butter from women’s cooperatives in Ghana.
